ADEMONSTRATION of the use of the Seoco moving-floor trailer in dealing with mown grass, was given, last week, by S. E. Opperman, Ltd., Boreham Wood. Herts. The trailer. which has a load capacity of 2 tons and offers 350 cubic ft. of space when side raves are fitted, was hauled by a Fordson tractor.
Grass was deposited by a green-crop loader on to the rear of the floor, which was moved mechanically when a lever close to the tractor seat was engaged. With three or four movements of the floor, the trailer was completely filled.
For tunloading, the direction of operation of the floor is reversed, so that the load can be deposited in a compact heap on the ground or spread over an area.
Although the trailer was designed primarily for harvesting green crops, it can be employed in spreading manure
