Longer spreader now takes 10t

EXTENDING body length by 46cm (18in) has enabled Dowdeswell Engineering to boost the capacity of its flagship muckspreader from 8t to 10t.

Revealed to the public for the first time at the Muck 95 event, the new, top-of-the-range Multispread uses a similar design principle to its 6cu m/8t brother – an auger feeds material to the front of the machine, where it is fed through a sliding door on to an overshot expeller rotor.

Hydraulic adjustment

A combination of hydraulic adjustment of the vertically sliding door and altering tractor forward speed controls application rate, and spread width is up to 20m (65ft).

Price of the 10t Multispread, which has a minimum requirement of 70hp at the tractor pto, is £11,239.

Dowdeswells flagship Multispread spreader has a capacity of 10t.
