    Best trailing shoe or dribble bar on the market?

    Looking at trialing shoes and dribble bars, but liking the look of trailing shoe. Ideally need something that can be mounted to tanker, or used on tractor as umbilical system. Used on grass land only. What would be the best brand to go for? Anybody have experiences with different brands?

Out of the two which would be the better buy, not a real...

    Joskin, Hi Spec or Major

    I have just been accepted for the grant on a trailing shoe, however since putting in for it I have learnt that it would be too heavy for my current tanker and so am looking at either a Joskin, Hi spec or Major 2000g with a trailing shoe depending on what's in stock in time for the grant . To...

    Dribble bars. Is 7.5 wide enough?

    Currently looking at Storth, major and Slurrykat bars. Was wanting 9m but there’s a big price jump to the 9m slurrykat and major only do a 7.5 anyways. All salesman have said 7.5m is popular. However I can’t help but think I’m going to be narrower than splash plate. Unless it’s the wrong way to...

    Mastek eco trailing shoe

    Are there any users of the mastek eco trailing shoe? What's the general opinion? Looking at a 9m unit for a tanker. Not a huge fan of dribble bars but they are a lot simpler and cheaper cheers

    How much nitrogen fert can I save by using dribble bar?

    As above really. Is there any difference between dribble bar and trailing shoe, ie can I graze it any quicker after trailing shoe than dribble? How soon could I graze after dribble bar/trailing shoe application. Can I cut out artificial nitrogen altogether on my grazing ground or silage ground...

    Umbilical Dribble Bar

    We have been doing our own umbilical pumping for a few years with a twin nozzle splash plate type spreader and are looking to buy a 7.5 or 9 metre dribble bar. I've priced up one or 2 so far and waiting on a few more prices. They all seem about the same money so was wondering if anyone could...

    Dribble Bar vs Trailing Shoe.

    Right , I know this has been covered before partly by other threads. But here in NI we are in the process of having spreadplate banned in stages over the next couple of years so it's time to change systems. So on the back of a 2500gal tanker, all grassland farm, no dairy (so slurry not water)...

    Umbilical pump discharge.

    Been looking at my discharge pipes for umbilical pump. I see some and was always told slow sweeping elbows to keep flow smooth. But looking around on line and I see some with 90s. My question is. Is anyone using a pump with 90 on ? Does this effect output or hp consumption on the pump. Thanks Mbc
