I’m from South Dublin, so not farming at home myself. However, I have always travelled down to spend time working on my Uncle’s dairy farm near Mallow. How did you come to be driving the demo BigM 450? As soon as I...

Farmhand, the exclusive Krone distributors for Ireland, claim to be ‘mowing the country’ with their demonstrator BigM450. “Ireland is one of the biggest markets for BigM in the world” said Stephen Scrivener from Farmhand. “A combination of tight harvest times, small fields and very heavy crops make the BigM a winner. On top of this, labour shortages are making the move to BigM more attractive to contractors” he added. Ben Buckley, a Dublin native who got his...

After the launch of the BigX 680, 780 and 880 last year, the 1180 range topper was just a matter of time. The extra power over the previously released models comes from a 24.24-lire, 850kW/1165hp Liebherr V12 engine. This not only makes this the biggest harvester in the world, thanks to the Liebherr engine it also has long service intervals. Higher engine power and throughputs require the new flagship BiG X 1180 to use larger-diameter conditioning rollers....

Since our last Premos newsletter was published, we have made great strides in the further development of the machine. In this issue we will spotlight the changes, modifications and improvements we have implemented in the meantime. In our last issue, we explained that we had to increase the diameters of the die rollers from 800mm to 1000mm on the two 2016 machines. These modifications have had a very positive effect in terms of throughput and pellet...

Thomas Steele – Co. Down Overall, we are very happy with the machine. Like anything, there is a bit of setting up to get the machine working properly but once it is, the ZAV works well. We work mainly grassland and have been buying Amazone spreaders since 1962. There is a premium to pay with the ZAV but we are already recouping money on our investment. Thanks to the weigh scales, I can tell exactly how much...

What do current BigX owners say?   Our BigX 630 has been a fantastic machine for us. Thanks to the six feed rollers and the spring loaded drum floor, the intake is hard to beat. Transport width is under 3m even on 800 tyres. We have some very tight fields to work in down here but the manoeuvrability of the machine is great.  The pick-up lifts high so we can get into any field. The longer chop...
