2015’s Spread-a-Bale machines will feature a galvanised finish and a combination of lighter rotors, improved hydraulics with an up-rated motor that manufacturers Thos Storey Fabrications Ltd say will improve the machine’s working life and extend the distance it can spread straw.

Spread-a-Bale is a hydraulically powered machine that spreads entire straw evenly while creating minimal dust and without staff having to enter the pen, which reduces the time and labour involved, as well as reducing straw usage.

Prices for the new style machines start from £10,425 for the Mini machine (1.5m diameter round bales; 1.8m long square bales); £11,050 for the Midi (1.5m; 2.5m) and £11,500 for the Maxi (2.0m; 2.5m).

Thos Storey is also offering a retro-fittable cowling that can quickly be attached/detached from in front of the rotors which enables the machine to windrow hay or silage, or distribute it into feed troughs or mixer wagons. This option costs £450.

Redrock Trailer Dealer

Redrock Machinery’s new trailer range is now available in Cornwall & Devon through IDM. Designed and built to operate in the most demanding of agricultural environments, Redrock’s superior build quality and strength are evident throughout: from the strong, stable chassis to the tough, modern body.


  • More flexible capacity: grain & silage trailer ranges 10.5-20t
  • More as standard: sprung drawbar, hydraulic brakes, hand brake, front inspection ladder & LED lights come as standard
  • More choice: springs or oscillating tandem bogies complete with bronze bushes for longer life; selection of tyre options from 385/65 x 22.5 wheels to 560/60 x 22.5 flotation wheels etc; other options include: hydraulic up and over doors, air and hydraulic brakes, ABS and load sensing etc
  • Better handling in the wet: thanks to off-centre Bogie axles, which reduce front tandem wheel weight and wheel scrub
  • Efficient discharge: due to tapered trailer bodies
  • Improved safety: High-speed commercial axles as standard with 420 x 180 brakes giving approx 50% braking efficiency. (Draft EU regulations will make this compulsory)

In keeping with the ethos of the Redrock tradition, these trailers are engineered to the highest specifications of design and strength to ensure the maximum working life for farmers and agricultural workers. Redrock: designed to perform, built to last.
