Spreading muck with ease

Written by  Mark Daniel
The new Strautmann TS range was introduced at Fieldays 2021. The new Strautmann TS range was introduced at Fieldays 2021.

Palmerston North headquartered Strautmann Hopkins Ltd imports the extensive range of Strautmann Muck Spreaders for farmers and contractors, built by the German builder that calls on over 60 years of development, manufacturing and experience in the field of specialised spreaders.

 The VS and PS ranges offer strong, reliable and accurate spreading of a wide range of products, including lime, farmyard manure, separated effluent solids, slurry, compost and bedding materials. Large volumes can be spread efficiently, with models from 20m3 to 32m3 capacity, with a myriad of options available to suit individual requirements.

 Machines can be specified with a patented dynamic weighing and spreading control system that can be programmed to spread via pre-prepared application maps, ensuring accurate spreading density, while also offering proof of placement documentation to meet all existing and future legislation.

Designed to work with the ISOBUS architecture, machines can be controlled via the tractor’s integral display, allowing users to work under precision agriculture formats.

Recently introduced at Fieldays 2021, the new TS range takes the form of a more typical bathtub design featuring a low centre of gravity, a 2.7 metre loading height and capacities of 14 or 16 cubic metres. 

The choice of twin vertical beaters or the universal spreader with two horizontal spreading discs sees the former utilising 880mm diameter rotors with 12mm thick milling times to shred material, and is fitted with a cam-clutch overload system.

Fitted with a single axle, the layout allows for large diameter tyres, up to 710-70-R38, to provide less rolling resistance, making the unit easier to tow. Standard features also include twin 16mm diameter floor chains, each rated to 28 tonnes breaking strain, driven hydraulically to allow precise presentation of the loader to the beater mechanism.

A narrow profile drawbar offers increased manoeuvrability, with the addition of spring suspension making for a smoother ride and increased operator comfort.
