Fertiliser auger

We have purchased a stainless steel fertiliser auger made by canagro which graham at mark weatherheads has fitted to the rear of one of the lorries. This will enable us to move around 20 tonnes of fertiliser around for the spreader. We will be spreading TSP on a variable rate next week. The auger is powered by hydraulics and a spoil valve has been fitted to the rear of the spreader to allow the spreading tractor to power the auger.
