Dribble bar and trailing
shoe from Hi-Spec
Hi-Spec will display its dribble bar solution from AgQuip
at FTMTA Grass & Muck. The dribble bar is designed to
follow ground contour without exerting any downward
force. This ensures that there is no additional horsepower
requirement to use the dribble bar, according to Hi-Spec.
It is available in 6m or 7m working widths. The splash-
plate is also in place so the farmer/contractor has the
convenience of both systems.
"The AgQuip dribble bar is
galvanised for long life. The
lower half of the dribble bar
will pivot to follow ground
contours. This allows the
specialised rubber boots
to present the slurry evenly
on the ground and soiling
is avoided," a Hi-Spec
spokesperson said.
Hi-Spec will also display a
trailing shoe option from
AgQuip. Available in 6m or
7.5m working widths, the
trailing shoe is carried on an
independent lifting mast on
the rear of the tanker. It works
with `active contact pressure'.
The spokesperson said: "A
hardened trailing shoe gently
parts the grass sideways
and allows the slurry to be
placed onto the ground via
a specialised rubber boot.
The grass covering will then
prevent valuable nutrients
from escaping and the
placement of the slurry to
the roots ensures a reduced
grazing turnaround. A
splash-plate is also fitted as
standard to provide maximum
flexibility to the operator."
In addition, the XCEL 1250
rear discharge manure
spreader will be on display.
The XCEL 1250 is unique in
that it uses a rotary chain and
flail system to achieve a good
break-up of material, which
is then spread using a pair of
spinning discs, according to
Hi-Spec.
