Taking ownership of a new Bunning Lowlander 150 HBD manure spreader has helped save on time and money in the long-run, for Alex Milne, who farms 1400 acres of livestock and arable ground.
With a spreading distance of 78 feet, compared to 20 feet with his previous machine and double the capacity, his new purchase is far more efficient, and its low compaction on the field works well with the farm’s min-till system.
“The fewer runs up and down the field, the better, so the fact that the Bunning can hold 17 tons, compared to the 9 tons that our last manure spreader could take, is ideal. Fewer trips to the manure pile also saves on fuel,” said Mr Milne.
The spreader is fitted with weigh cells, allowing for more accuracy and ensuring ease of use for the driver.
“All in all, it suits our job better than any other, it’s stronger, with a bigger capacity and gets the job done quicker,” added Mr Milne.
