New compact big round bale solution for straw spreading and haylage feeding
A new compact self-loading straw spreading and feeding machine for six feet diameter big round bales, with the option to combine turbo manifold for extra power, will be launched at LAMMA ‘20 by Spread-a-Bale.
Called the Mini RB1.8, the machine will appeal to livestock farmers seeking solutions for straw spreading and haylage feeding, particularly for high density bales resulting from being harvested in difficult conditions.
Extending Spread-a-Bale’s M Series, the Mini RB1.8 which is both front and side mounted, requires two tonne lift capacity. Spreading distance is up to seven metres by a twin vertical rotor. The standard machine is hydraulically powered and requires 55 litres per minute oil flow, and the turbo options a maximum 70 litres per minute.
For farmers feeding haylage, the Mini RB1.8 provides the option to attached the Feed-a-Bale deflector to facilitate forage into troughs and mixer wagon and along fences.
Spread-a-Bale’s Michael Hughes comments: “The Mini RB108 is a welcome addition to Spread-a-Bale’s portfolio, enabling livestock farmers with big round bales which have been harvested in wet weather and require more spreading power. This have been overcome by developing a system with the option for higher displacement hydraulic motors and higher torque capacity.”
He adds: “Similar to other Spread-a-Bale systems, the Mini RB1.8 will enable farmers to make reductions in spreading time and labour, and equally important, make between 30% to 50% straw savings.”
Mini RB1.8 standard list price starts at £12,225.00; available from Spread-a-Bale’s dealer network.
