High quality machine, low operating costs
Aimed at the contractor market or end-users who demand a premium machine for low operating costs, Bunning Lowlander GT4 manure spreaders, imported to the North Island by Hamilton-based Ag and Civil Limited, do the trick.
Designed to spread all types of manure, the Key 105 Compact and 150 models both feature a fully welded, heavy-duty construction, using 4mm steel plate for the sides and 5mm thick material for the floor . With capacities of 12.6 and 16.6 tons respectively, a 1,500mm wide conical body can withstand loads of 12.9 to 21 cubic meters. This is moved rearward, by a variable speed hydraulic floor drive, using a combination of 16mm / 32 ton capacity floor chains and full width threshers.
At the rear of the machine, two dynamically balanced vertical threshers draw their drive from a centrally mounted gearbox, with a cushioned mid drive to protect against impact. In the case of a stationary object, the protection of the shear bolt in the drivetrain of the beater prevents damage.
Equipped with 10mm thick boron steel flights and knives, the rotors offer spreading widths of up to 16 meters, depending on the material, with a rear canopy for spreading fine materials like manure of chicken. Meanwhile, a take-off setup means the rotor module can be quickly removed to allow the trailer to be used for other hauling tasks.
Both machines feature on-board weighing systems, in the case of the 105, a Topcon GT400 system, while the Model 150 uses a full specification ISOSCAN application flow controller, allowing targeted application evaluated by automatically adjusting speed. ground at travel speed, or via a predefined application plan can be loaded via the USB port. The system also allows for live weighing using 20 ton load cells located on both the axle and the drawbar. Standard equipment includes a vertical slurry rear door, 1000 rpm PTO, hydraulic brakes and a parking jack, with the entire machine covered by a three-year warranty.
