Developed in response to customer demand for a robust machine which can deal with a range of bedding materials including sand, shavings, sawdust, chopped straw and lime mix, Blaney Agri have launched a new cubicle bedder.
The CB Discus has been developed in conjunction with dairy farmers, says the manufacturer, and can be fitted to a three-point linkage or used with a loading machine.
As the name suggests, the hydraulically driven machine uses a pair of spinning discs, positioned in the base of the machine, to spread and distribute material into cubicles. By varying disc speed, spread pattern can be customised to suit various conditions and materials, says the manufacturer.
An agitator with wide reaching flights prevents bridging in the hopper, says the firm, while a stepped feed system with a high torque motor ensures a constant feed of bedding material.
The machine can spread to either side and is available in a range of sizes from 0.8cum to 2cu.m capacities, with a galvanised finish as standard.
Prices start at £5,100.
