What does Michael Owen (Director) Owen Enterprises Pty Ltd North Star have to say about his company, operations and Walsh & Ford Manure Spreaders.
Owen Enterprises is a mixed, dryland farming, irrigation, cattle breeding and feedlot operation. We are always trying to streamline our methods of practise and reduce costs, so when we considered the most efficient means of distributing manure from the feedlot we proposed utilising machinery we already had in other areas of our operation.
Our aim with Walsh and Ford was to produce a manure spreader and a grain chaser bin that was interchangeable and had capacities in excess of 30 tonnes. There were several issues Walsh and Ford had to contend with: the chassis had to be robust enough to handle undulating contoured country; the bin and spreader had to be fully independent and easy to swap over; and, both the bin and the spreader had to have high capacity delivery.
The result has been a uniquely versatile machine that allows us to spread manure in a manner compliant with Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) regulations and increase the fertility of our soils. The machine comfortably spreads manure 6 metres each side of centre (further for lower rates of application) and can empty a 30 tonne load in under 10 minutes. Lower rates are applied by slowing the chain bed floor and spread widths adjusted by changing spinner speeds. The spreader is OH&S compliant and servicing is minimal due to an auto-lube greasing system.
