Over the past four years we have been renting spreaders in order to perform compost trials in orchards and vineyards. When the last available rental spreader was sold out of the area earlier this year we were scrambling to find a solution for our farm customers. Though it has been a stretch for us financially we knew a spreader is needed for the region.
We’re super excited to announce the arrival of a new piece of artillery to our line-up—the Kuhn Knight 8110—a side discharge spreader perfect for the efficient and precise application of compost, especially in tight orchard rows. Seriously, this is “the Cadillac” (do people even say that anymore?) of spreaders. This well-built rig, traditionally used for manure application, is extremely suitable for spreading compost without getting bound-up.
We can’t wait to put it to use! We’re now offering two additional services:
1) We Spread—we’ll deliver compost to your orchard, farm, or vineyard and will spread for you.
2) Spreader Rental—Rent the spreader at a weekly rate and hook up to your tractor.
Check out our Compost Spreading page for rates and details.
Many thanks and gratitude to Papé Machinery (Hillsboro) and Kuhn Knight for helping make this happen! We certainly hope to turn the Gorge agricultural scene on to this high-quality piece of equipment.
