FarmerPlus Bobbin

Available in 600m or 1000m carrying capacities, the FarmerPus Bobbin Reeler can be mounted at the front or rear of a tractor. In addition, many customer are combining the Bobbin with Storths Farmer Plus Twin Spreader to give a simple budget price piggy back system.

Constructed around a robust 80mm box section frame reelers are fully galvanized and built for operation in  harsh slurry environments. Please note galvanising includes the red power coated side panels.

Whether you choose to leave the Bobbin on throughout the spreading operation or interchange with other equipment Storth have it covered. Both a three point linkage and female “A” frame coupling are standard.

Positive drive is maintained using a 3/4” chain which is directly linked to a heavy duty hydraulic motor. A built in dual counter balance valve protects the reelers drive line, chain tension adjustment is considered ensuring maximum life as well as performance is achieved.

For those wanting to section off the reeler Storth supply a bolt in Reel Divider Kit which can be factory fitted or customer installed at a later date. The aim is to give product flexibility as well as durability.

H R Henderson & Son

Chris, Richard and Michael Henderson have a dairy farm at Dalton in Cumbria. They milk 220 cows and have about 200 followers.

“We were at the stage where we had to decide between a new tanker, contractor or go for our own umbilical system – so we took the plunge. For us it was a no brainer really, it’s been a very good decision.”

Chris, Richard and Michael admit it has been a steep learning curve “But once you know the basic techniques it’s not complicated – it’s common sense really. And Storth are always there to give us advice.”

Contractor Bobbin

At the heart of the Contractor Bobbin Reeler lies  the unique heavy duty gearbox drive providing minimum maintenance and maximum torque. Protected by a dual counter balance valve the gearbox provides market leading power.

Chassis structural design assists in combining weight saving with strength and durability.

Available with 600m or 1000m hose capacities, the Bobbin can be mounted at the front or rear of a tractor. In addition combining the Bobbin with Storths Comb Twin Spreader gives an extremely robust bobbin piggy back system.

Three point linkage and heavy duty female “A” frame come as standard as well as full galvanisation, which includes the powder coated red reeler side panels.

For those wanting to partition off the reeler Storth supply a bolt in reel divider kit which can be factory fitted or customer installed at a later date.
