Chassis-mounted dribble bar

Written by  Staff Reporters

Effective use of farm effluents has never been so popular due to the meteoric rise of synthetic fertilisers prices over the past few months.

As the adoption of controlled effluent application increases, Irish manufacturer Hi-Spec Engineering has developed a new chassis-mounted dribble bar to extend the existing range of slurry equipment.

Weighing in at 520kg and offering a working width of 7.5m, the new dribble bar is equipped with 30 flat hose outlets, spaced 25cm apart, fed by a Hi-Spec distributor with integrated stone trap.

The fully galvanised frame folds into a compact 2.55m-wide profile for transport: each support arm features a spring-loaded, break-back mechanism to prevent damage in the event of collision with an immoveable object.

Control is via one double-acting remote valve that operates through a diverter control to change between lifting/lowering the arms and operating the distributor and gate valve.
