Bunbury Machinery, direct importer for Western Australia
G T Bunning & Son’s are pleased to announce the appointment of Bunbury Machinery as their importer for Western Australia. Bunbury have many years experience of supplying and supporting the Bunning range of rear discharge Manure Spreaders so when the opportunity arose to be able to purchase direct from the factory Manager of Bunbury Machinery, Rod Ellard didn’t hesitate. “We work directly with many of our suppliers from several different countries, so are used to having direct relationships with manufacturers” said Rod. “With a new pricing structure we will be more competitive and with a direct relationship for sales, parts and service, with the team at G T Bunning, we will be able to give our customers a more professional and timely service” With the first machine already going through production for delivery in September, both companies are looking forward to growing the sales of Bunning spreaders in the future.

Mine clearing in Afghanistan
Having been involved in agriculture for over a century, UK manufacturer’s G.T. Bunning & Sons Ltd. were somewhat taken aback to learn that one of their market leading rear discharge manure spreaders was operational in Afghanistan, and rather than being used for the purpose with which it had originally been designed it had been adapted for use as a mechanical tool in the effective clearance of landmines.
Future farmers visit Bunning factory
When Reepham Young Farmers Club recently visited the factory many members commented on how interesting it is to see the muck spreaders that they use being made. The visit included a full tour where the members were able to see how materials are taken from their raw state through cutting, machining, folding, welding, fabrication, painting and final assembly, prior to delivery. Pictured with the Young Farmers, far left is David Bunning and far right is John Bunning. The machine pictured is a Lowlander 150 Heavy Duty Mk2 HBD Manure spreader, sold to local contractor Steve Suggitt, it will be used to spread Turkey and chicken litter, lime, gypsum and general farm yard manure.
At the recent annual show at Borgeby, local Farmer Anders Johansson placed an order for a Lowlander 150 Mk4 to work along with the Lowlander 105 Mk4 that he purchased 2 years ago. Anders finishes around 4000 head of beef cattle per year so has the requirement for machines that are strong, reliable and have a high through-put. Impressed with the performance of the 105 he had no hesitation sticking with the Bunning brand.

New Web site
Bunnings are pleased to announce the launch of their new web site. After considerable feed-back from customers it was decided to build a site that would give much clearer information on the range and variation of machines that the Company offers. Features such as pictures, video and user testemonials were deemed just as important as specification and dimensions. The site is fully content managed by the Bunning team meaning information can be up-dated quickly and accurately.
