Huge Bergmann muckspreader discs fling manure to 36m

A new V-Spread disc design on Bergmann’s huge 24t 6240 muckspreader has increased working width to 36m for farmyard manure and other materials.

The patented blueprint consists of a three-roller milling unit and two 1,100mm discs that are mounted at an angle to make spread widths and pattern consistent.

The system will also be available on the tandem-axle 5210 and tri-axle 7340S.

Elsewhere, Bergmann has added its widest-ever pick-up (2,270mm) to the 34t tri-axle Shuttle 510K forage wagon. At 1,840mm, it claims to have the biggest drum on the market, too, and the 53-knife kit offers a chop length of 34mm.

The German firm has also made much of its mainline kit Isobus compatible, including the forage wagons.
