Joskin have launched the S4008/8V muck spreader, a farm-sized machine.
As the race to have the biggest machine dominates machinery launches, Joskin have introduced a more compact model of their Siroko muck spreader range.
Designed on the basis of the smallest existing model of the range, the S4010/9V, it has the same running gear and body length (4m), but its body height was lowered by 24 cm, to 85 cm.
The two removable vertical beaters with 3.5 spirals are 1,500 mm high, with a diameter of 820 mm and remain fitted with teeth in Hardox 450 steel, and retractable blades at their base forbetter spreading.
Thanks to this configuration, it offers not only stability, even in very steep areas, but it is also easier to load.
Its capacity nonetheless reaches 8 cubic metres.
As for the rest of the Siroko range, several options are available, like the tight hydraulic guillotine door, aluminium or wooden extensions of 250 mm, as well as a PVC protection of the upper body strip.
A Joskin spokesperson commented at the launch, “Even if it is the smallest existing model of the Joskin muck spreading programme, it benefits from the same finishing quality and care during manufacturing and development.”
