Economical Bedding: Tobroco-Giant Zv350

September 6, 2017

TOBROCO-GIANT has developed a spreader bucket for sawdust which is perfect for bedding cow cubicles in an efficient and economical way. Once equipped  with the optional side brush and manure scraper, the ZV350 (ISO content of 370 litre) can bed and brush 40 cubicles per minute with one pass.

After putting the spreader bucket into practice it was possible to bed 100 cubicles with only 100 litres of sawdust. This will not only save you 50% of sawdust but also saves thousands of dollars per year. Cattle health is also improved because the racks, cubicles borders and mats are clean after a pass. Clean cubicles decreases the change for udder disease and problems with claws.

Save time and Money with Economical Bedding

Forget hard manual labour and save time with the use of the ZV350. With a Hardox blade and wear strip, bedding materials can be quickly and efficiently self-loaded . Attach and detach attachments within seconds due to Tobroco-Giant’s hydraulic attachment system. The machines supports ensure safe and stable storage as well as pre-loading before attachment.


ZV350 dosage can be accurately controlled from fully closed to fully open. The screwed mixer blades and dose plate easily mix by-products making the spreader bucket suitable for a range of materials.

Options for expansion

The standard ZV350 can be equipped with a manure scraper which cleans during the bedding process. The scraper hits the edges of the cubicles due to the Erlan rubber and fitted Hardox blade.

To keep the cubicles clean it is also possible to equip the spreader bucket with a hydraulic side brush (75 cm in diameter). The brush will turn into the cubicle so it is possible to start cleaning from the beginning and over the entire length. In the standard setting the brush will reach till 75 cm inside the cubicles but the height and length are adjustable. In folded position the side brush has the same width as the bucket so it is even possible to manoeuvre in tight spaces.
