Safer, faster, more flexible: the pluses of replacing your old flatbed trailer with something new Whether it’s simply for moving bales or bags of seed or fertiliser, shifting pig arks or…
Richard Western’s recently-introduced new pusher-ram trailer range is to make its national exhibition debut at LAMMA 2022, on Stand 6.
From the body to the chassis to the tyres, the key components of trailers designed for rubble and stone haulage face probably the most rigorous working conditions and demands among trailers generally, making a robust and practical design, built from strong steel protected by tough paintwork, a necessity.
Re-thinking and re-engineering an established trailer design specifically for higher-capacity sugar beet haulage has this season enabled a number of beet growers to boost harvest capacity, reduce trailer-load numbers and as a result cut fuel use and field damage.
With agronomic focus on soil’s organic matter content – and its effect on structure and health – having become more intensive over recent years, the role muck spreader design plays in ensuring manure is applied thoroughly and accurately to maximise its value has also become more important.
Richard Western is bringing the safety and efficiency benefits of push-off trailer design to its product line, with the launch of a three-model range to be built at its Suffolk factory.
With few machines in a farm or contracting business’s fleet costing as much as a self-propelled forage harvester, keeping the machine on the move when in the field is essential.
When considering a new sugar beet trailer, boosting efficiency by taking a step up in capacity to match harvester output and reduce the number of loads requiring haulage doesn’t have to mean greater impact on the ground.
Harvest puts pressure on everyone in the operation chain, from the combine driver to the person running the grain store. Don’t forget the tractor and trailer team in between – ensure their equipment gets the attention it requires.
