Crump Spread­ers: ser­vic­ing Aus­tralian Farm­ers for a Cen­tury

Farm World News - - Farm World 2016 -

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.

Green Edge Con­sult­ing uses a Menzi Muck ma­chine that reaches places where hu­mans can’t walk. Check them out at Farm World.
