HORTCOM SPREADER WAGON

 

Spreader Wagon

The Spreader Wagon is 1.8m wide – this enables easy access in most common row widths.
With good turn around sites the Spreader Wagon can distribute 300m3 plus per day.
Wagon holds 4-5m3 at any one time.
Start/Stop controls enable easy spot or strip mulching in rows.
Wagon is powered by hydraulics connected to the tractor remotes with controls for the flow and depth of mulch.
 
The Marlborough Research Center has done mulching trials over a three year period which have highlighted many promising outcomes.  A book on this is available from Marlborough Council.
