Yes, compactor works well and had a lot more weight than compared to our normal trailers. Pushes a load off quicker than you can tip and lower a trailer. Rear stear makes life easier in tight gateways. Negative for me would be it is top heavy even empty so would not be keen for a young 50k everywhere pilot loose with it.

Has anyone used one? I like the idea of more capacity and safety but is it worth the extra investment?
We have a couple at work,good trailers and a lot better than the hispec compacters we also have which are very unstable😭 there fast to unload and great for low buildings

Not all young are 50k everywhere!

Son used one for a while last autumn , was very impressed with it.

Did load up some rye and move across the yard, suffice to say you wouldn't have much of a licence left if VOSA stopped you!

Like the concept and be ideal on flat land but I feel they perhaps not be ideal for steeper ground constantly pushing the load back would make the drawbar light , with the front of the trailer being loaded last and reduce grip.
On steeper ground we always loaded the front first to get some weight on the back wheels for better grip but I am sure you would get used to it and work round it and load appropriately for the conditions as you progress across certain parts of the field.
Certainly be a godsend on long hauls and save a few roofs on the devils work which are inside pits built 60 years ago when trailers were much lower tipping affairs.

What happens if your pushing back while getting loaded by the chopper and some grass gets blown in front of the pusher? Does it just fall out when you bring the pusher back forward or does it cause problems?

Load the front, then when he's loaded half of the back push it back , then load the front and compact, then some on the back and so forth.

It can push it out the front put its wasted on the floor.


Don't compact if the tail gate open ! Red light has to be off!

Our maize man has a Krone TX, chain and slat floor for fast unloading, forced rear steer and huge tyres. It does the work of 2 14t trailers. Not much use for hauling muck though.

Was a ktwo one on eBay looked a full spec with forced steer and a weigher. We nearly bought a hispec until we seen it the running gear on it’s a disaster nowhere near heavy enough
 

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
