Crump Spreaders: servicing Australian Farmers for a Century
There is no doubting that farming is not for the faint hearted, and the team at Crump Spreaders Australia pride themselves on doing their small part in assisting our Aussie farmers achieve top results with uncompromised reliability.
Crump Spreaders have been a mainstay in the Australian agricultural scene since before WWI and are now manufactured by Albury Precision Engineering to ensure the product continues to remain an integral part of farming practices.
Based in Albury- Wodonga, the machines are designed to accurately spread dry free running fertilisers up to 1500 litres/ ha. This includes granulated super, urea and potash to name a few.
The introduction of Omya's Calciprill means Crump Spreaders can now be used to apply extremely fine lime in a granular form. Crump and Omya are working together to ensure farmers are achieving the best of both worlds in product and application as Calciprill from Bathurst is low in dust, easy to spread and breaks down rapidly in moisture.
Accu-Spread and AFSA testing shows results within parameters of 5%. This offers confirmation of the integrity of the products tested ensuring that granulated products are dispensed in their intended form.
The Kurrajong trailing fertiliser spreaders range from 1-3 tonnes while the Acacia three-point linkage models range from 1-2 tonnes.
Deluxe models have twin outlets which can be adjusted to compensate for distribution variation.
Customer feedback is an important aspect in the R&D process adopted in-house. From this, galvanised frames, hydraulic options, heavy duty tyre upgrades and road- tow kits are also now available.
30 000 spreaders have been manufactured since 1945, so earlier models are not forgotten with manuals, spare parts, stickers and information still available for many of the earlier models.
