The Fertiliser Crane enables self loading of bulk bags of fertiliser into the spreader.  It attaches to the tractors 3 point linkage and then onto the spreader.  Attaching the crane to the spreader is easy with two bottom brackets and an adjustable top link bracket.  The crane fits to almost all CAT1 and CAT2 spreaders currently being used in Ireland.  The main design feature of our crane is its compact design and short brackets for attaching the spreader.  This ensures the least amount of weight on the back of the tractor.  Our design provides the maximum balance while spreading with a full spreader over difficult terrain.
