Conversion Kit Turns Grain Truck Into Spreader
You can quickly turn your grain or gravel dump truck into a manure spreader with this slip-in kit introduced recently at the West-ern Canada Farm Progress Show in Regina, Sask.
It was such a hit at the show, the manufacturer says he's been swamped by orders from all over North America.
D & M Williams Manufacturing Ltd.'s self-contained kit consists of heavy-duty drag chains, aluminum slats, and beater bars. They slide in as a single unit and lock into position.
The kit plumbs into the truck's existing hydraulics which are more than adequate to drive the spreader unit which has four heavy-duty chains fitted with slats and dual beater bars fitted with eight 10-in. dia. blades. Chains drag on the spreader pan, not on the floor of the truck, notes the company.
Once you're finished, you can quickly remove the kit and have full use of your truck for other jobs.
Kits are available for 13 to 15-ft. long gravel boxes and 14 to 16-ft. grain boxes. Hydraulics must be installed for trucks with-out dump hoists.
Sells for $8,500 and $9,500 (Canadian), respectively.
