New compact solution for spreading high density big round bales

A new compact self-loading straw spreading and feeding machine for six feet diameter, high density big round bales has been launched by Spread-a-Bale.

Called the Mini RB1.8 HD, the heavy duty machine will appeal to livestock farmers seeking solutions for straw spreading and haylage feeding, particularly for high density, compact bales resulting from being harvested in difficult conditions.

Extending Spread-a-Bale’s M series, the Mini RB1.8 HD 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 machine is hydraulically powered with turbo manifold and requires a maximum 70 litres per minute.

For farmers feeding haylage, the Mini RB1.8 HD also provides the option to attach 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 RB1.8 HD is a welcome addition to Spread-a-Bale’s portfolio, enabling livestock farmers to efficiently spread the ubiquitous high density, hard bales harvested in wet weather, and which they are finding other spreaders, choppers and bale processors are struggling to manage. The Mini RB1.8 HD offers a heavy duty system with higher displacement hydraulic motors and higher torque capacity.” 

He adds: “Similar to other Spread-a-Bale systems, the Mini RB1.8 HD will enable farmers to make reductions in spreading time and labour, and equally important, make between 30% to 50% straw savings.”

Mini RB1.8 HD os available from Spread-a-Bale’s dealer network.
