Abbey Machinery specialises in innovative farm equipment to help increase productivity and complement sustainable agricultural practices, working closely with its customers to understand the challenges their customers face and develop solutions.

The company’s extensive slurry tanker range includes Standard, Recess Premium and Premium Plus, Tandem and Tridem models. Multi Spreaders precisely spread broiler manure, compost, mulch, semi-solids, slurry, and factory waste with consistent results regardless of material, while side spreaders ranging from 6 to 15.5 cubic yards can handle a wide variety of solid or liquid manures.

Complementing the slurry tanker range are Low Emission Slurry applicators (LESS) such as the Agri Pro trailing shoe, Band Spreader and Premium Plus Trailing shoe which are available in a range of sizes.

On the feeding front, upgrades have been added to the Abbey Diet Feeder including the power shift gearbox and NIR feed sensor capabilities.

Plus Range Diet Feeders have added an upgraded 22mm thick auger, the 2810 digital weight Indicator with wireless communication to mobile device and in-cab control, a fully galvanised viewing platform, new style feed out arm, rounded mudguards, wider tray for minimum spillage and door wedges for an even feed out.

The power shift gearbox allows lower horsepower or older tractors to be considered to power large feeders, offering potential fuel savings, the opportunity to reduce maintenance costs and feeding times, along with a reduction in noise levels. NIR feed sensors, installed in the tub of the feed mixer, offer real time analysis of quality and mix homogeneity, functions said to be exclusive available to Abbey customers. or visit site number D73, D71, D69, D67
