Sulky Spreader is a great new addition for the Holloway’s Farm.

Ed Holloway runs a 275 acre farm near Montgomery on the border of Wales and England. He’s recently taken over running of the farm from his dad, Mike who still works on the farm as they are the only two workers on the farm. The farm is mostly arable but also has some dairy cows that Ed and Mike rear on a contract with another local farm.

Ed is the 3rd generation of the Holloway family that have farmed here, and took over from his dad around four years ago.

Ed required a new fertiliser spreader after his previous one had broken several times and it was more cost efficient to buy a new one, as they had also just taken on additional acreage. As a loyal customer of RVW Pugh, Mike contacted sales Manager, Colin Harding to give advice on the best one to buy. Colin suggested a Sulky fertiliser spreader. Both Mike and Ed decided to buy a DX30+ model, which is the first Sulky machine they have bought, and found it very reasonably priced.

Ed said, ‘This was the first time we’d heard of the Sulky brand, but I feel we made a good choice of fertiliser spreader.’

The DX30+ model has a working width of 12-36m and has a capacity of up to 2700lt. It also has an optional weighing system with an automatic application rate adjustment from the cab.

Ed uses the Sulky app to calculate the amount of fertiliser needed per kilo per acre, where it gives him the settings needed. He uses a working width of 21m and has had no issues with the fertiliser spreader’s performance.

Ed added, ‘The spreader works well with a good even spread, and I haven’t found any patches where the crops are growing a different rates. Emptying after use is straightforward too.’
