Bunning

Muckspreader specialist Bunning says that it has has seen significant growth in the number of spreaders being specified with weigh cells over the last two years.

 

It will show its new top level controller, the iSocan Apollo, which has a larger screen and will allow the user to unlock further options such as guidance, auto headland on/off and overlap control.


Manitou Group

Manitou Group

Manitou Group will introduce the new Gehl 650 articulated loader, part of a four-model range to be launched in 2016.

 

It features a Stage 3b compliant Yanmar 62hp engine and is an addition to the existing Gehl range. Weighing in at four-five tonnes, the loaders feature a digital instrumentation display, Power-A-Tach attachment system and a hand throttle as well as a newly designed canopy and cab operator station.


Fliegl

Fliegl is showcasing three new trailers for grain, root crops and other vegetables.

 

The Fliegl TKM grain tipper trailer has a capacity of 22.5cu.m which can be increased to 38cu.m if optional silage kits are fitted.

 

The TKM root and crop tipper trailer is longer and lower than its European counterparts, designed to avoid damage to crops when loading.

 

Both trailers have tandem axles and their smooth, trough shaped design helps to reduce overall weight and further increase load volume.

 

Fliegl has also developed a flat-bed vegetable trailer. The curtain-sided trailer – which is currently in the prototype stage – will be 7.5m long, large enough for 12 to 14 pallets.


JCB

JCB

JCB will show the latest Loadall models with Stage 4 engines and new features for the Smart Hydraulics package. This includes a regenerative oil flow system that allows the boom to be lowered faster at modest engine speeds and new high flow auxiliary hydraulics option delivering up to 105-litre/min flow at 190bar for bale spreaders, sweeper brushes and similar implements with a high demand for oil and hydraulic power.
