As we now live in Shropshire, we are in agricultural land. I learnt recently that in Ludlow there is a manufacturer of agricultural machinery. As a child, like many young boys I guess, I was interested in tractors and the like. I still remember building technical lego Tractors. Now I thought I might try my luck at designing some Agricultural Machinery; these are speculative designs. Who knows, I might get a chance to show them these ideas…
Spreader with central cab
Forward cab Spreader. The “Arms” are made of composite. The design aims to integrate the tank into the form of the vehicle.
This version with a forward cab is an intermediate design.
The Multitask is a smaller vehicle. It has the spreader arms integrated into the body design. The complete unit on the rear is removable. The aim of this smaller vehicle is to allow spreading to take place in smaller holdings, enter through small lanes and enter through smaller gates.

The complete spreading unit is removable, allowing the vehicle to change purpose and become a pickup truck.
The Multitask allows for the investment in a specialist vehicle to be spread and for the machine to be like a “Swiss Army Knife”.
