Front Mount Strawblower Gets Into Tight Areas
The VDW Duo Compact Strawblower is a Belgium-built front-mounted processor for skid steers, telehandlers and tractors. It handles both round and square bales with a load rating of 2,800 lbs.
    “For mounting and brackets, the skid steers are simple as they have uniform hookups,” says Paul Storey, EMC Agri Ltd. Sales Support. “We make sure of the right brackets and attachments for any equipment.”
    All Duo Compact’s components are driven off standard flow, open center hydraulics, one pair of remotes, one K strain, and 12-volt electrical hookups. Everything is controlled from the cab with an electric over hydraulic controller.
    To pick up a bale, the tailgate is opened, and the unit is pushed under the bale, after which the tailgate is closed to contain the straw.
    The machine comes standard with a remote-controlled hydraulic tailgate, a rotating pipe, and a live chain floor similar to a manure spreader that helps feed bales into a single feeding drum. The drum processes the straw into twin blowers that shoot wheat or soybean straw, or corn stalks through the rotating pipe up to 50 ft.
    The low design of the machine ensures a well-arranged and evenly spread bedding pack.
    “Our twin blowers are smaller in diameter than our competitors, but because of that, we get much better front visibility,” Storey says. “Our compact design is perfect for dairies or feedlots that often have tighter alleys and corners. We even sold one to a Texas wildlife sanctuary that’s using it for bedding its outside pens.”
    The 2023 VDW Duo Compact retails for $31,900 U.S. FOB plus S&H.
