Mr Dave Morgan Assistant Producer of Top Gear made contact with Bunning a short time ago asking if we would be interested in taking part in an episode of Top Gear with one of our Bunning manure spreaders, the answer was of course yes.
The timing couldn’t have been better as we had a Bunning Lowlander Widebody 380HD being prepared for export, the shipping was cancelled and we finished assembly ready for the test that lay before us.
The 380HD is our Flagship machine, built in the UK and shortly to be built in the USA as well. It weighs in at 32,000Lbs (14,500Kgs) with a carrying capacity of 88,000Lbs (40,000Kgs). It’s tri-axle with 105,000Lbs (48,000Kgs) suspension. The augers are made from heat treated Boron and exclusive to Bunning. Bunning is renowned for its strength and reliability and this just backs that statement up.
GT Bunning and Sons would like to thank the BBC and Top Gear for showcasing the Lowlander Widebody 380HD. Can an industrial manure spreader crush a Volvo?
