That trailer is so quick you missed it:-D Sorry, haven't got one of it actually tipping but it only takes 15-20 seconds to unload. Here's the new 434 getting rid of the load.;-)

Jon Deere Dingle, this trailer holds around 18-20 tonnes @ 65-70% moisture

Thanks for the comments and the welcome fellas. Andy, I live in Finley, my workshop's right in the middle of town on the main drag from Victoria to Queensland. Maybe you've driven past it.

Re: Spring 2006
Is Finley in the riverina area? so how did the drought affect you guys last year?

Re: Spring 2006
Yeah, right down the bottom of the state. It's been pretty tough down here because of the dramas with irrigation water. We had a pretty good silage season because the farmers needed as much feed as possible but the finances have been tight for some making it hard for us to get things done. We've had decent rain recently and if it continues things will be looking up a bit, should have a good spring.

Re: Spring 2006
Is the side tipper a commercially available machine or "home made" Colin?

Re: Spring 2006
Tas, for those very observant people out there who know their machinery, they will notice the chassis is a demountable Tebbe made in Germany.Have a look at the following picture. The body we made last year not knowing how well it would work but it has far exceeded our expectations. First time I've tackled a side tipper. I'm always building something so keep your eyes open.

Re: Spring 2006
This is the same chassis with the spreader body on. We used it like this for silage in 2005 with a different hydraulic motor to speed up the floor. Now, with the side tipper we carry 20 cubic metres more and empty about 2 mins quicker. Will post some of the spreader working sometime.

Re: Spring 2006
jDeere, most of the load comes out straight away, only the tiniest bit sits at the edge till you move forwards but doesn't leave a trail. I haven't got any pictures at the minute but will get some sometime. Did you enjoy your time in Australia? Do you need another holiday? Always looking for good drivers.;-)
