Manure spreaders migrate north
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.
