Storth NDB/1240 12m Vertical Fold Dribble Bar c/w 360 Twist
Needing something to ensure a precise application of slurry while preventing run-off and nutrient loss? FarmChief Contractor Dribble Bars are the answer.
Our Dribble Bars reduce the surface area of the slurry exposed to the atmosphere, lowering nutrient losses when compared to Spreader Bars.
Applying effluent via a dribble bar ensures the nutrients go where you want them to go, reduces run off and material loss, while keeping the grass cleaner and reducing smell nusience.
FarmChief Contractor and ContractorPlus Dribble Bars have working widths up to 12m wide and are certainly the strongest dribble bars around. The robust central frame design achieves close coupling, a narrow transport width and great strength to support reeler piggy-backing.
On the Contractor Dribble Bar, the specially designed NovaCut distributor guarantees consistent and accurate material distribution, with uniform application across all of the 40mm distributor outlets, even feeding fibrous slurry. Continuous expansion of the hose joints from distributor to delivery hose eliminates any blockage opportunity.
If you’re looking for more control over the application, choose the top-of-the-range ContractorPlus Dribble Bar. Fitted with a horizontally mounted NovaCut Distributor on each wing of the bar, allowing for hillside feathering, ½ side shut off or complete shut-off. Careful consideration has been given to the build, with it featuring improved rear visibility and ground-level access to the distributors.
Additionally, the extendable 180degree swim arm gives extra support to the incoming pipe, and an optional 4” flow meter can be installed with ease.

Fisken Contracting, based in Gore, can tackle fairly much any job there is. From lane maintenance to cartage, baling to logging. Tony Fisken backs umbilical slurry systems because of their efficiency and the fact that they’ll work at high volumes and in conditions where slurry tankers simply can’t. “There’s little or no compaction of laneways or paddocks and it’s a very effective way of moving large amounts of nutrient.” Tony says the system is especially good on softer soils, (and on the shoulder seasons) where tankers could get stuck, as there are only the hoses to be placed down and reeled in. His business works with umbilical on distances up to, and even exceeding 2kms, which, Tony says, accommodates most properties. Some farmers find it so effective they choose not to use their own systems at all. “They just give us a call.”

Colin Molloy runs a 420-sow piggery, along with 130 hectares of cropping and livestock, in Sheffield, Canterbury with two large effluent ponds.
Although it was the advanced hydraulics that first drew Colin to his Veenhuis Profiline 16600 litre Slurry Tanker, he is also acutely aware of the need to successfully manage environmental issues and soil fertility. The tanker enables him to recycle the nutrient-dense manure and reduce odour in one go.
His tanker injects the effluent back into the soil providing a great start for barley, wheat, and pasture and removing the nuisance normally associated with conventional “broadcast” systems.
