Ma­nure spread­ers mi­grate north

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Mata­mata’s Mur­ray Wil­cox does not let the grass grow un­der his feet.

Mr Wil­cox found out about Bun­ning Low­lan­der ma­nure spread­ers from a friend in the South Is­land so af­ter look­ing into the prod­uct he de­cided to be­come the North Is­land dealer for Bun­ning agri­cul­tural spread­ers.

‘‘Com­pared to other brands avail­able on the cur­rent mar­ket these ma­chines are con­sid­er­ably well priced,’’ he said. Bun­ning was a renowned Bri­tish brand of ma­chin­ery which was well proven and ver­sa­tile.

There was a com­pre­hen­sive range of spread­ers that ap­plied a wide range of ma­te­ri­als from ma­nure to liq­uids, wood­shav­ings and all types of mat­ter.

The Low­lan­der spread­ers were equally suited to farm­ers and contractors.

‘‘We have four spread­ers in stock at present and will be get­ting more,’’ Mr Wil­cox said.

They were avail­able in six dif- fer­ent mod­els, the small­est car­ry­ing a ca­pac­ity of 8.2 cu­bic me­tres through to the largest which held 19.7 cu­bic me­tres.

The fully welded con­struc­tion en­sured long life and un­matched resid­ual val­ues. They could be loaded di­rectly from ir­ri­ga­tion ponds and spread across the farm.

Long term this would be a very eco­nom­i­cal pur­chase. Farm­ers could phone 888 7139 for a free demon­stra­tion.
