zetorworld 87557 92 Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !! either
Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
This is my Schuitemaker 3.5 ton muck spreader.
I bought it for 100 Euro last year, and invested 750 Euro
for a pinion gear, a driveshaft, 210 Kohlswa chain links, 5
new bearings, 3 cans of bitumen tar paint, two cans of RAL
3000 fire red paint, and a can of wood carboleum.
And, off course, LOTS !! of spare time..
Before painting it was wire brushed.

Thsi picture is right after spraying the finishing paint.
The air compressor we used, is in the foreground.

Here you can see the Kohlswa deck chain.

I have welded a punch-press round on every finger end for
reinforcement, as holes were rotten in. With a thick layer
of tar paint, it can go for another 15 years !!

To spread muck, we will need the Schuitemaker SMS 3500 muck
spreader, pulled by the Zetor

Hey Renze,

ziet er goed uit! kun je weer jaren mee mest rijden!

wij hebben hier ook zo'n projectje staan.
een Lely 4 kuubs vacuum tank die we vorig jaar voor een
habbekrats gekocht hebben, deze gebruiken we om drijfmest op
pas gezaaid uien en bieten land te rijden om het stuiven
tegen te gaan.

moest nogal wat aan gebeuren, de pomp zat vast, de afsluiter
zat vast.
pomp weer aan de draai gekregen, afsluiter los gemaakt, dit
moet nog veranderd worden met een cylinder boven op de
afsluiter, nu zit de cylinder boven op de tank en sluit de
tank met een stangen steltsel, een zelfbouw vochtvanger erop
gebouwd, en de wilen van een van de Renaults eronder gezet
met verloop platen.

maar hij ziet er niet zo netjes uit dus wil ik hem laten
zandstralen bij m'n maat en weer netjes in de lak zetten
deze zomer.

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
is ne keer zandstralen zal zeker geen kwaad kunnen denk ik,
wij zijn thuis ook met zoiets bezig, een ouwde opraapwagen,
pick-up eronderuit, bovenbouw eraf, nu de lichten nog in
orde maken en de bodem verbreden en wat verlengen, zal ook
wel een schoon kar worden

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
Hey guys, sorry i wasn't finished yet.. ;-) the farmphoto
server was a bit bogged yesterday...

So her eit goes: We'll use the Schuitemaker pulled by the
Zetor 5245, and we will use the 1964 ?? Deutz D50 UFSE
(pre-production model) with loader.

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
Yep.. even if you paint the spreader very well, it's of no
use if you keep it that clean....

On the picture, you can see the gearbox, containing the
gears and pawl system, in an oil bath.

Schuitemaker, in the mid 50's got famous with this closed
oil bath construction, as other manufacturers were using
more complex, and open constructions, exposed to the manure,
that were not very reliable.

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
view on the spread muck from the cab..

It is doing a nice job with the dual beater drums..
I just had to get used to the small working with of this old
spreader, when it was an auger type spreader it would spread
wider than the tractor, but now i had to drive over the muck
to spread without lanes...
I the first passes had a 50 cm gap between the spreading
lanes.... :-\

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
After about 12 hours of muck spreading, one half of the silo
is emptied...
This was muck, collected in 2 years. The first muck
contained a lot of rough straw, and was hard to load with
the bucket. I have an old silage block cutter, and want to
use it as manure rake.
The later, old and rotten muck, was easy to load, but very
heavy. I found lots of worms in the muck..

one worm, i believe, will dig itself through about 1 m3 of
earth per year !! solid stable manure will increase the soil
structure very well, because of the worms and bacterial life
in the muck. It also stimulates the little animals to dig
itself up, to take some muck down into teh ground. Let them
dig, so i wont have to rip the soil !!

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
This makes some room.... :-D

Now we can put the fresh horse manure on the one side, when
the other side is composting... With a front loader you cant
take old composted muck from the back of this silo, so we
will make two lanes of muck, one comes from the stables, the
other is leaving to the field.

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
Great series Renze. Is that traditional Dutch footware you
are wearing? :-)

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
Hey Renze,

that Schuitemaker spreader does a real nice job! a nice and
even spread, can you adjust the speed of the chain bottom?
or just one speed?
we use a dairyfarmers manure spreader to spread onions skins
and composted onions to spread on the field, but with that
spreader the chain floor is driven by the pto and we can
adjust the speed of it which comes in real handy.

and that amnure that you have in the bunk silo seems like
real nice stuff! i wish i had some of that available to me!!
would be good for our ground.

do yoi guys just raise horeses or other livestock as well?

And Stu,

yes that would be traditional Dutch footwear, i am from
Holland originally (moved to Canada 6 years ago) and i own a
pair too, they are very comfortable and easy to slip into
when you need to go outside or something.

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
Forgot to add something to my previous post...
Renze, mybe you could take your outside fingers off the
beater bar and weld them on an angle which might help throw
the manure to the side a little more, that way you dont
have to tramp the spread manure.

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
Clogs don't look comfortable but I've heard from so many
dutch guys that they are - I guess I'll have to get a pair
to find out! ;-)

Renze, what's the green tanker in the back of the picture?
How many liters?

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
Let's take this one by one:

Stu:
Yes i wear traditional Dutch footwear as often as i can.. I
have bad feet, and the orthopedic footrest is a blessing
when your feet are used to wear them !
Wood is a natural material, it lives.. it absorbs sweat and
keeps your feet cool in the summer, and it isolates in
winter. Most people buy a pair, and then think it's noting.
It's because they have to wear in, so that the bottom is
getting a little oval. I use to grind a smooth fillet to the
back part, on a belt grinder.

In the picture my wood shoe is a little dirty, with the tar
paint from the spreader, and old motor oil that we burn in
the heater in the workshop, at 0°C the paint wont harden..

Huib:

Yes the Schuitemaker pawl box can be adjusted to drive the
bottom chains at 7 different speeds.
This spreader must be 20 years old. Parts of it, are 30
years old. (i made this a hybrid from 2 old ones)

The muck, we used to give it away for free (is that why
americans say 'dirt cheap' ??? :-D ) to a contractor that
sold it to vegetable growers. With the nowadays mineral
accounts, it is not attractive to trade small amounts of
manure to private vegetable gardens.

We have a field that was wete every autumn and winter, as
long as i can remember, maybe 15 years. 2 years ago we
brough there about 120 t/ha of old muck, this meant such an
improvement to the soil structure that this heavy soil, with
a lot of ore in it, is dryer than the dust sand fields
around the farm...


Bart:

The green tanker is my brother's, it's about 18 m3 but it
looks bigger due to it's length.
Our 6718 (66 hp) can pull it. With the 5245 i have to stay
in 4th gear, in 5th gear it keeps the revs but is unable to
accelerate...:-D

Are you interested ?? my brother bought it for trade, and we
dont use it because we have sold most of our land at
distance. for 2250 Euro it is yours.

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
Hello Renze,

Still looking for a round nose Zetor 3011? On
www.marktplaats.nl is now one for sale for 350 euros. The
engine is frozen in winter but running.

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
Frank, that is a nice little tractor to put in front of my
muck spreader...
But when there's a "story" about it (engine frozen), it's
better to take a look how bad it is, before buying...:-\

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
I know there is a story going with it. I don´t know how hard
it is to get another engine and how much this will cost.

But, you wrote a few months back you wish to have such a
tractor. It´s not very expensive (if it is worth 350 is
another story!).
I thought it is standing in your region (everthing north of
Arnhem is your region in my opinion :-D).

Re: Schuitemaker muck spreader, as new !!
Well, if there's a crack in the block, i could try to melt
tin and copper in it, and if it's the cylinder head, i can
get lots of those parts from wreckyards..

Renze,

Here is mine version..... It is not as tidy as yours! It´s
the black color and old dusty shed.
