Next generation
technologies from Abbey
The weather has played havoc on farm this year in-terms
of grass growth and providing adequate winter fodder
stocks. As farmers look at every available alternative feed
to bridge fodder supply gaps, many farmers are looking at
cost e ective solutions to e ectively mix and utilise these
feeds in a way that optimises the results and minimises the
labour input involved. For this reason, Abbey Machinery
will have an array of Diet Feeder models on display at
the Ploughing from VF1250, VF1500, VF2450 Plus and
VF3350. According to a spokesperson: "These machines are
uniquely engineered to rapidly mix, while keeping essential
feed structure characteristics within the ration and all with
minimal horse power requirements. A variety of feed-out
options and much more will be on show to suit various
farm situations." Abbey will also be launching their new
`Plus' range of Diet Feeders, that start at VF2450 model
size with more added features for improved performance.
In addition there will be an array of Slurry Tanker sizes
from Premium Plus 1600R Tanker complete with DM Band
Spreader. As farmers and contractors endeavour to get
through larger volumes of work in a tighter window, there
will be larger Tanker models including 3000 Recess Tandem
and 3500 Tandem on display complete with Applicators
and an array of optional extras for farmers to view. And with
even more focus on application systems to deliver slurry
onto the ground Abbey Machinery will have their Vertical
Trailing Shoe, Tri-App and DM Band Spreader Applicators on
show. "The benefi ts of these machines is how and where
they deliver the slurry onto the soil to harness more fertiliser
value, shorten rotation length, reduce carbon emissions,
minimise crop contamination, reduce smell and much
more. These machines along with Abbeys Slurry Pumps to
prepare slurry for more accurate and even application are
part of Abbeys `6 point Slurry Management Plan'."

Several examples of the highly-rated tractor Fendt range will be displayed at
The Ploughing this year, including one from the Fendt 300 Series. Delivering
132hp, the Fendt 313 Vario is the largest of a four-model range of multi-task
all-rounders. It's now available with VarioGuide ­ GPS-guided automatic
steering ­ opening up this technology to a wider spread of farming
operations. Moving up the size and power scale, visitors will also be able
to get up close to a Fendt 516 Vario. This tractor heads up the four-model,
lower-to-mid-range 500s, generating 163hp. A spokesperson from
Fendt also notes other tractors on show: "Fendt 700 Series tractors
excel at wide range of tasks, from light-duty grassland work to safe,
high-speed transport and challenging heavy fi eld operations. The
Fendt 724 model set to appear at the event heads the six-model,
144hp-237hp 700 Series and, with weight-to-power ration of only
33kg per unit of horsepower, makes for lively performance. Moving
along from the tractor line-up, Fendt's presence will include the
Tigo PR50, one of the seven-strong range of forage wagons.
Combining huge capacity and high feed quality, the Tigo
benefi ts from Fendt Stability Control (FSC) to provide
reassuring performance over even demanding terrain. With
the Tigo, Fendt's design team has produced a forage wagon
that's a metre shorter than before, by means of a completely
new cowl design. This not only enhances stability but also
reduces the power demand on the tractor." Fendt will also be
displaying an example of the highly successful four-model
Rogator 300 Series at the IPC. The RG344 has a 4670-litre
tank capacity and is available with boom widths of 24m, 27m,
28m or 30m to suit individual requirements and fi eld sizes.
