Horizontal Beater 80 HBD

A Single 695mm dynamically balanced horizontal beater has laser cut 10mm heat treated BORON steel flighting to improve strength and service life. Reversible hardened cutters manufactured using BORON steel are bolted and supported along the back edge, shred products giving an even and consistent feed on to the spinning discs

Large diameter spinning discs

Manufactured from HARDOX, the 1.1 meter diameter spinning discs are fitted with multi-position BORON, reversable spreading blades. Blade angle is adjustable to achieve the correct spread patterns for a wide variety of materials. Spreading widths from 12 to 30 meters are possible depending on the density and nature of the product being spread

Adjustable blade position

To fine tune spread patterns the angle of the blades on the disc can be adjusted through 5 positions

Adjustable drop on point – 80HBD

The lower section of the rear canopy is adjustable to help achieve the correct spread pattern with different products

Full width floor slats

Full width floor slats clear the entire floor area, eliminating the possibility of bridging, a problem sometimes encountered with multi chain and slat floor systems. The “socket fit” design allows for easy maintenance which can be carried out in the field, it also allows the chain to pull straight should a slat become bent

Floor chains – 16mm

16mm, grade 80, heavy duty chains are drawn by high tensile sprockets, which are fitted to the front shaft as well as the driven rear shaft, ensuring perfect alignment and timing of the chains. Each chain has a 32 tonne breaking strain certificate. The same specification chain is used throughout the Mk4 range

One piece disc drive gearbox – HBD

The heavy duty, one piece, disc drive gearbox has 54 mm diameter, heat treated output shafts. The precision machined gearbox castings ensure perfect alignment of all the drive line components

Floor Drive Gearbox – Mk4 HBD

The 500 series floor drive gearbox is fitted to all models with the exception of the Lowlander 60, 80 and 150 (fitted with 350 series and 800 series respectively).  It is hydraulically driven to ensure an even feed of material to the spreading mechanism at all times. With a reverse feature, any foreign object too large to pass through the beaters can be easily removed. An adjustable crossline relief valve also delivers additional protection

Heavy duty beater drive

The horizontal beaters are driven by heavy duty Renold roller chains which incorporate solid rollers and bushes. These are chosen for their unbeatable resistance to wear, fatigue and most of all shock loading. An automatic cam driven oiler keeps the chains and sprockets lubricated

Floor chain tensioning

A robust, simple and reliable floor tensioning system allows easy adjustment ensuring that chains are kept to their optimum setting. The chains are visible from outside the machine making it easy to judge when tensioning is required. 50 mm high tensile shafts are used

Floor shaft bushes – Farmstar

50mm floor drive shafts rotate through polyester re-inforced composite bushes that contain a solid graphite filler, chosen for their high load applications in a variety of environments they are greasable, further extending their life

Double acting Hydraulic guillotine slurry door

An extremely strong design and construction ensures that the door can be used as a grading device for light applications of materials as well as a device for retaining very runny products

Wide angle PTO assembly

The wide angle joint allows for turning on headlands with the PTO still engaged. It should be noted that the manufacturers recommend that you do not turn with the PTO under load

240mm Bolt on extension sides

For increased capacity bolt on 240mm steel extension sides can be added. Spreader design load capacity should be checked relative to the density of the material to be carried

Hydraulic Border Spreading Deflector

This deflects the material down to the ground and limits the spread width on one side. This prevents material being spread through hedges, into water courses, etc

In cab electric floor speed control

The in-cab electric remote floor speed control allows the operator to make adjustments to the floor speed while on the move

Slurry door height indicator

This options allows the operator to monitor door opening positions in relation to application rates

Air brakes

A choice of either 2 Line Air Only Brakes or Dual Supply (2 Line Air and Hydraulic) Brakes

Tool box

A robust item designed with a sloping lid to reduce the build up of material


LED Strobe/Flashing Lights

These ultra bright LED flashing/strobe lights are fitted as a pair and give a highly visible warning

60-80 Swivel pick-up eye attachment

Option to fit a swivel pick-up eye in lieu of fixed eye is available

80mm Scharmuller spoon attachment

Option to fit a 80mm Scharmuller spoon attachment in lieu of fixed eye is available

Mudguards 60/80

Mudguards reduce spray and debris from tyres and give a width indication to traffic

LED front & rear Mudguard marker lights

These bright LED marker lights are fitted to the front & rear of the mudguards and give a positive marker to the overall width of the machine

Wheels – Farmstar 80

Standard wheel is a 18.4 -34 10 stud.

Options: 18.4 – 38 10 stud, 520/85 R38 10 stud, 580/70 R38 10 stud, 650/65 R38 10 stud, 710/70 R38 10 stud

ISOCAN weigh cell system

The Topcon Apollo spreader controller has all the features for today’s farming techniques. The standalone ISOCAN screen enables independent control of spreader with only 12 Volt power required from tractor

ISOBUS ECU only weigh cell system

The Topcon Apollo spreader controller has all the features for today’s farming techniques. The standalone ISOCAN screen enables independent control of spreader with only 12 Volt power required from tractor

Topcon GT400 simple weigh system

The GT 400 not only displays the live weight in the machine but also allows the operator to add the total weight up by pressing the start/stop button after every load. This simple weigh unit can be fitted through the whole range of Bunning muck spreaders from the 60 to the mammoth 380HD. The system is integrated with the same 20 tonne load cells as used on the popular and proven Topcon Apollo systems

Build weigh cell ready

As an option the machine can be manufactured to take weigh cells at a future date. The dummy weigh cells can be easily removed and replaced with full weigh cells.

Overload beacon for weigh cell

Spreaders with a weigh cell system can have an overload beacon fitted. This helps operators loading the spreader know when a desired weight has been achieved to reduce chance of overloading. Beacon is magnetic and can be moved to improve visibility

Non Standard Colours

While Bunning Blue or Bunning Green are our standard colours. From a BS or RAL number we can paint your machine in almost any colour
