Strautmann announced the expansion of flatbed manure spreaders at Agritechnica 2019, with the new TS 140. The smaller flatbed spreader enables farmers to benefit from precise spreading application within a compact design.

The TS series has a particularly robust design, due to the tapered side panels with fully welded side posts and is fitted with 16 mm thick round steel chains with a breaking load of 28 tons. The TS 140 has a maximum loading capacity of 14m3 and is fitted with BPW axle with a cross section of 120x120mm and 410 x 120 mm.  Tyres of up to size 710/70 R 42 can be mounted to keep the ground pressure and the rolling resistance to a minimum.

The heart of the TS range is the new wide-angle spreading unit with two beaters arranged horizontally in combination with two spreading discs. With a diameter of 620mm, a 12mm thick milling tines and 920mm large spreading discs the spreading unit ensures reliably distribute of spreading material over 24m’s width. All wearing parts of the spreading unit are made of Hardox and are reversable to increase service life and reduce maintenance costs.

The spreading beaters are powered via a cardan drive with large-sized gearboxes, ensuring particularly smooth running and minimising wear in the drive. The entire power train is protected via a cam-type cut-out clutch with 1800Nm.
