Open Country represents three great lines of manure handling products – Aerway, Hitchcock Inc., and Parma Company.
Compost/Manure Spreaders from Parma Company
In 2000, Parma Company expanded its line of durable farm equipment with the acquisition of the Dirks (formally Tycrop) “Supera” manure spreader. This acquisition returned to the Parma® line a farm box product missing since the mid 70’s that had existed since the 1940’s. This multi-use combination box is a heavy duty manure spreader that can be simply converted to a forage box for year around usage.
When you are ready to upgrade your manure application system, contact Open Country about AerWay’s superior manure management system.
With the Aerway SSD System you can reduce fuel, time, labor and commercial fertilizer use. The AerWay family of patented “Vertical Tillage” tines are designed to relieve compaction and loosen the soil profile for superior absorption and retention of liquid waste. The unique lean and twist of the tines is designed to move the soil laterally and to fracture soils 8” and deeper. The tine action disrupts the preferential flow of manure by creating pockets which act as temporary reservoirs to contain and absorb the slurry into the surrounding soil.
Hagedorn H Series Horizontal Beater Models
The longest lasting, best performing, most serviceable horizontal beater manure spreader your money can buy.
Stepped Beaters spread finer, wider and more uniformly than traditional stacked beaters.
Conventional beater configuration, for hydraulic-push machines, places the upper beater directly above the main beater. In some conditions, manure from the upper part of the load can break away and tumble into the lower beater before it reaches the upper beater causing a light/heavy/light spread pattern.
RipGrip Beater Paddles are designed for better spreading.
The aggressive shape rips the manure and holds onto it for a fraction of a second. The result is a spread pattern that puts the manure behind the spreader rather than into the air.
V Series Vertical Beater Models
The new industry leader that delivers performance and control to maximize the nutrient value of your manure.
For Vertical Beaters we went to BERMA, a world leader in vertical beater design.
To ensure optimum performance, our engineering team worked with BERMA engineers to “beef up” their basic beater designs to better suit harsh North American conditions.
Paddle configurations are a combination of blades to slice through tough materials and cups to fling finer materials and semi-solids. Even corn and bean stalks are shredded to an indistinguishable fineness. Beaters can be customized with any combination of cups and knives. For even more durability in high-usage applications or abrasive materials we offer forged and hardened components. We’ve even created custom components for specific applications. What can we do for you?
Better processing and distribution means better feed for your fields.
Closely-spaced spirals and over-lapping beater tips mean more contact with the manure for finer processing and better distribution. Unlike apron-type spreaders, which have a dead spot for apron clearance, spirals on a Hagedorn spreader go all the way to the bottom of the beater. An impeller, at the bottom of each beater, further ensures good distribution of fine materials and semi-solids.
