The Conor Slootsmid Trailing shoe system has been developed with a robust and practical design to operate in all types of terrain. The tank, the trailing shoe and the axle are integrated as closely as possible which gives excellent balance and maneuverability. The trailing shoe has a fully galvanized body and a powerful hydraulic macerator which chops up any fibrous material. Its working width ranges from 5 to 9 meters and has a transport width of 2.55 meters. The hard wearing shoe parts and plated springs ensure a constant pressure on the ground which ensures the slurry is constantly applied directly onto the soil.
With the trailing shoe system contamination of grass is greatly reduced allowing for grazing 3-4 days after spreading. It has been proven to greatly increase grass yield due to an increased utilization of nitrogen and it allows for application of slurry on higher grass
