Roof Mounted Hanging Systems

Roof Mounted Hanging Systems

Roof Mounted Hanging systems are a great way to spread straw into some large intensive buildings. no need for machinery to be driving in and out of the building, no need for passageways, utilise the whole building.

The machine is powered by electric and runs down a rail in the roof of the building, the straw spreader sits on rollers that fit into a frame around the rail. It can then slide around the building on the rail, the Straw spreader is powered by electric motors, the electric is supplied to the machine via a conductive system, this is usually a separate rail that runs alongside the hanging rail. There is no restriction to length of the rail, it is even possible to run the machine around a corner or it is even possible to have a system running between buildings. Altec and straw spreader do not supply the rail system or the electrical supply but can recommend companies to use. there are several options that can be supplied.

If you are building a new shed, this is defiantly a solution to coincide as at the point of build it is a very cost-effective solution, the typical life span of a machine is 10 years +.

Machines can be supplied with remote control or a platform to ride around the building with the machine and operate it.

Machines can be supplied for round bales or square bales or to use both.

Typically, if you are using one of these machines over manual bedding, you would expect a 30% straw saving and 10% over a chopper blower.

The maximum spread from one rail would be 16m, lots of options are available, so please consult us to discuss your requirements.

The loading of the bale can be achieved in a couple of ways, one way would be to have a docking station and just push the bale into the machine, via a rolling floor, or load with a loader, or have a system that drops to the floor to aid loading.

In Europe these systems have been in place for a lot of years and more than 1000 units have been installed. Once installed this system is a very cheap way of bedding animals, it is very safe, dust free spreading and usually only requires one person to operate and manage the system, so it is also a very cost-effective solution in our busy and every demanding farming environment.

Hanging systems can be fitted to your shed, round or square bale options are available as are manual or automatic system, please consult us for a free no obligation quote for a system.
