Do-It-All Machine Loads, Spreads, Scoops And Sweeps
Powered by a 3-cyl., 20 hp. Kubota engine, the hydrostatic drive provides infinite speeds in forward and reverse up to 8 mph. A dedicated hydraulic pump powers forward and reverse movement.
A second hydraulic pump powers other components, including an agitator in the self-loading, 46-cu. ft. hopper. Simply tilt the hopper forward, drive into the pile, tilt the hopper back, and begin spreading. The spreading disk produces much less dust than competitive units with blowers and can deliver even damp materials to the bedded area.
With a total length of only 84 in., the 3-wheel design allows a turning radius within a standard 8-ft. aisle.
The rotating brush with its 3-way valve can operate at the same time as the spreading system, or separately. It’s fully adjustable to match the height of the stalls and moves up, out of the way if driving over a manure pile.
The hydraulic manure scraper mounted under the hopper moves material through slatted floors as brushing and spreading are underway. The scraper blade is 68 in. wide.
“The Bedding Spreader has the weight of an average dairy cow,” says Treur. “It’s very safe on slatted floors.”
The Boreco Bedding Spreader with the commonly included rotating brush is priced at $34,000 (Canadian).
