Activities and applications in agriculture
Discover the possibilities with some examples.
- Pushing of feed
Pushing feed is “daily business” on a dairy farm. The combination of Weidemann machine and the matching attachment is suitable for this purpose: for example the feed blade (mechanically or hydraulically adjustable), rotating feed pusher or fodder clearer, which can be used to mix in feed supplement.
- Mucking stalls
Weidemann machines are valuable helpers when it comes to mucking out stalls. They are characterised by particularly high shear forces. For example, fork and grabs, grab buckets or manure forks can be used as attachments.
The operator can fill the cubical bedder in one step due to its slanted and increased uptake edge. In this way, the bedding stalls in the stables can be quickly and effectively spread with chopped straw or sawdust. Different sizes of cubical bedders are available, depending on the Weidemann machine.
Weidemann machines can be equipped with various sweeping machines, weed brooms, high-pressure cleaners or sweepers in order to remove dirt of any kind. In this way, you can always keep your property and your production systems clean.
- Handling bales
The handling of round, square or silo bales is part of the daily work on your farm. Since there are many different types of bales, Weidemann offers a variety of different bale grippers and bale forks. In this way, you always have the right tool ready.
- Transport work
Transporting various goods and materials is one of the most frequent activities that the Weidemann machine helps you with. Attachments, such as pallet forks or various buckets, are used in the process. Physically strenuous manual labour is thus mechanised and you benefit from significant time savings.
- Loading grain
Work, such as loading grain, can be efficiently completed by a Weidemann machine. There are a variety of suitable buckets depending on the machine size. Weidemann machines are generally characterised by a high overhead loading height. Two powerful lift cylinders are always installed in machines with a load arm. Depending on the machine type, various length load arms are optionally available in order to achieve the required lifting height.
- Pushing on slotted floors
Hoftracs in particular, such as the 1140 or the 1160, are suitable for driving on the slotted floors in the stalls and scraping these off due to their low weight and compact dimensions. Weidemann offers a rubber blade as an appropriate attachment.
- Filling feed mixers
Feeding animals is part of the daily recurring tasks on a farm. Depending on the machine and size, there are a variety of different buckets, grippers and tongs, which are suitable for removing silage and filling the feed mixers with it. The manoeuvrability and flexibility of the Weidemann machines offer a real added value here.
- Trailer operation
Weidemann machines can be approved as a self-propelled work machine with trailer coupling or as a tractor, depending on the model. It is an advantage of being flexible to be able to drive into the field with a machine, for example, load the bales there and bring them directly to storage in one trip.
- Plot maintenance
There are green areas on every farm that must be mowed regularly. The Weidemann machine combined with a rotary mower, mulcher or a flail mower with collecting tray is recommended here. A pruning saw, rear trimmers or double-knife mower are also available here for trimming hedges, bushes and trees.
- Winter service
Weidemann machines can be equipped with various snow blades and rear spreaders, depending on the model. This gives you valuable support in winter service to keep the grounds free of snow and ice.
