Manure spreader in economy style

AN increasing number of manufacturers are producing economy versions of machines, an area Marston has moved into with its ECE Lowline range of manure spreaders.

Designed for farmer use rather than the contractor, three models are offered. The 600, 800 and 1000 have capacities of 6, 8 and 10t, and all use a hydraulically driven moving floor to feed material to twin vertical beaters.

Bed speed can be varied through a manually operated control valve, with electronic control as an option; spreader augers are pto driven at either 540 or 1000rpm.
