Lamma: Ritchie bale unroller self-loads

This year’s LAMMA show takes place at the Newark Showground on 16 and 17 January. Andy Collings highlights some of the new products that will be on display.

A record number of companies are expected to exhibit at LAMMA 2008. In fact the organisers have announced that, with 470 exhibitors signed up, the show is officially full. It’s a situation that many other agricultural shows would be envious of.

While the every-other-year Agritechnica event in Germany is becoming the show of choice for those wanting to see the latest European launches, for most UK farmers LAMMA provides the first opportunity to see new introductions in the flesh.



Ritchie’s mounted baler unroller is a self-loading machine – the operator simply reverses up to a round bale and loads it up. Bales weighing up to 750kg with a maximum width of 1.4m and diameter of 1.6m can be handled.

The unrolling process is hydraulically controlled and, says Ritchie, allows fodder to be discharged on to the ground or directly into feeding troughs or feed passages.
