Based at Meysey Hampton near Cirencester, Nick Keyser runs a small agricultural contracting business. Much of his work centres around baling, spreading, combining and hedge cutting, but he also offers his customers the service of collecting and transporting horse manure.
“My old 14-tonne trailer had seen a lot of service,” said Nick, “and to be honest I needed something with more capacity so I was looking around for a replacement. I mentioned it to Andy Taylor at T H WHITE who suggested trying their Ktwo demo Roadeo compact & push trailer.
“I took him up on his offer and the Ktwo18-tonne trailer duly arrived – I have to say I loved it!
“Everything about the trailer was high quality from the thick two-pack paint finish to the sprung tandem axles. The pusher system made it much quicker and easier to unload than a tipper trailer, while offering a lower centre of gravity which makes it much more stable. The ability to compact the manure gives you up to 40% more capacity too, but of course you can’t do that with cow muck.
“The demo trailer was a hi-spec unit with some great extras like a steering axle and air braking, but with money tight in the current climate I decided to go for the basic 18-tonne model. I’ve had it just over a month now and it’s brilliant! Of course I would have liked the extra bells and whistles, but the quality of the base model is just as good. I’m still discovering what it can do, but it has already saved me a huge amount of time – it saves me roughly two journeys each time I’m moving horse muck!”
Ktwo Roadeo compact and push trailers area available in capacities of 16–25 tonnes with up to 74.3 cubic metre capacity with compression. With a range of optional extras, they are ideal for silage, grain, woodchip and waste haulage.
