Vicon fert spreader


Recommended Posts

I have started to make a vicon spreader because there doesn't seem to be many older fert spreader about, to go with the age of the farm I am making.

I have made the hopper by vacuum forming a cast I made out of clay.

To make the frame of the machine I bent plastic while heating it over a tea light.

I try to vacuum form some feed troughs once but the problem was that I couldn't get the clay mould out so ended up braking the clay luckily this time the mould just fell out nice and easy.

nice one lad looks good i would love if someone made a abbey one too great work is it going to be on wheels or on 3 point linkage

Sorry I missed your reply It is going to be mounted on the 3 point link.

Some pictures of the frame.
