The Briggs model 10 and 15 effluent spreaders have been manufactured locally in Ashburton for decades, with over 3000 having been sold. These units are still the preferred way of spreading effluent for many farm owners, from one end of New Zealand to the other and across the globe.
These spreaders perform a complex task by means of a few simple mechanisms. The retro action of the effluent causes the boom to rotate for even spread of effluent. The rotation of the boom provides the motive force that propels the machine using a drive roller rotating around a series of cams which operates a simple lever mechanism to the wire rope winch drum. The machines are very robust and versatile with several speeds settings and both can be used for irrigation.
All spreaders are hot dipped galvanised for ultimate protection against corrosion including parts and accessories. A full supply of parts for both models is kept on hand in the Rainer Irrigation store ready for dispatch anywhere in the country, minimising breakdown downtime.
Auto shut off – The auto shut off is a mechanical valve that is adapted to the machine and shuts the flow of effluent off at the completion of the run.
