Hunts Agricultural Services, East Lothian, Scotland
Stuart Hunt of Hunts Agricultural Services, East Lothian, Scotland is delighted with his new spreader. Stuart previously ran a Bunning Lowlander 120 with Widebody augers. Due to increasing demands from customers for wider spread patterns of higher value products such as chicken manure and gypsum, he decided to upgrade to a new Lowlander 175 Heavy Duty HBD. The machine has 2 large diameter spinning discs which have allowed Stuart to top dress a wheat crop this spring with “Hen Pen” driving in 28 metre tramlines. Fitted with weigh cells and an RDS Apollo controller, application rates are easily achieved with optimum accuracy. The controller is supplied with GPS technology that allows it to spread from prescription maps with full variable rate control and record “as applied” maps.
