Hi, I'm after some advice please. I have a 52hp Kubota on a caravan park and am looking for a suitable fertiliser spreader. What do you use / recommend please. Thanks in anticipation.
 
Bought one of these in 2019 from this Company based on a recommendation from and Irish TFF'er.

Very pleased with build, based on a Vicon bottom end witha galv chassis and polyprop hopper, and at the time a lot cheaper than a Vicon. Might be tough to get one here now though from NI, but maybe worth a call?

I use mine on a Kioti 50hp compact, so very similiar to yours. It was bought as a lot less weight than small Teagle spinner. Needs a bit of weight on the front end if I put 600kg in mind...! :)

Will a caravan park need that much fertiliser? A Vicon PS225 will hold 200kg and have a low filling height. If you find you need more capacity add an extension and turn it into a PS335.
If buying new the same spreader is available as the Kubota VS220/330

You do realise if you fertilise the grass you will end up mowing it three times as much!
Thats what I was thinking, if true surely a mulching mower would be a better idea.

Unless there's livestock grazing there or field or 2 with no caravans on and hay made or something i guess but even so....:unsure:

The plot thickens :D

We take the clippings off to test annually and always have to balance with P and K to stop weeds and sometimes PH to stop moss. Max of 4 big bags a year but it's vital for us to keep things looking good.

Do you spread salt/grit on roads in the winter? I use a vicon wagtail for this, so might be used more than you expect. I think it has a specific spout for this job. New it was a lot more than £150, but guess depends on condition/age.
 

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.
