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....

The event’s purpose was twofold. “It’s great to mark 30 years for my department” said parts director Sinead Scrivener. “However, tonight is also about the culmination of 3 years hard work by the Fastparts team to get this webshop ready to launch” she said.   Fastparts was set up by Farmhand in 1988 and distributes a range...

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...

Fastparts, the parts division of Farmhand, have wrapped up the year by donating over 150 farming toys to Tallaght and Temple Street Children’s hospitals. “We had the toys in stock and thought it would be a nice thing to do.

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...
