Galvanised Spread-a-bale machine

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.
