Carlow-based engineering firm Hi-Spec will have its single-auger V12 model and the larger T24 twin-auger model on display. Sizes vary from 7m³ up to 32m³ across the two ranges. The low pitch mixing and chopping auger is fitted with eight self-sharpening knives.

Hi-Spec claims this knife arrangement makes the handling of bales easy and reduces power requirements.

The V series diet feeders are fitted with a single discharge door as standard. Different tyre options are available depending on feed-out height or axle loading.

The feeders are fitted with an independent chassis equipped with four Digi-Star weigh-cells as standard. The floor is built using 20mm steel with reinforcements on the underside. Both single- and twin-auger machine feeder bodies are constructed using 8mm high-grade steel and are fitted with an overflow ring to prevent spillage when maximising capacity. Power transmission across all vertical feeders is provided by Comer gearboxes.

The stand will see many manure handling options from both its slurry tanker and Excel dung spreader range. The 3500 gallon TD-R tandem-axle slurry tanker will take centre stage.

This high-specification tanker sees recessed mudguards, 750/60-30.5 Alliance tyres and an Agquip trailing shoe.


Available in either 6m or 7.5m working widths, the trailing shoe is carried on an independent lifting mast fitted to the rear of the tanker.

This linkage system allows downward pressure to be exerted on the trailing shoe system to ensure slurry is placed as close to the ground as possible.

Other tankers on the stand will include a tandem-axle 3500 TD-S fitted with 710/50-R26.5 tyres and 9m Agquip dribble bar, a 2600 SA-R single-axle tanker on 800/65-R32 tyres and 7.2m Agquip dribble bar.

A smaller 2000 SA-R tanker and 7m Agquip ECO dribble bar will also be on display.

The Hi-Spec stand will also see a Kompactor trailer – the triple-axle Kompactor K40.

According to Hi-Spec, the Kompactor trailers’ dynamic compaction mechanism allows for an additional 25% of material to be loaded into the trailer in comparison to conventional trailers.
