Harry West has decided to go smaller, not bigger, with its latest rear-discharge muckspreader. The 14cu.m (heaped) Maelstrom 14 was introduced at last year’s LAMMA, and now it’s been joined by the 8cu.m Maelstrom 8. Main features of the twin vertical beater machines are 14mm chains with pad-less connectors on every bar, 24mm adjusters as standard and LED lights. Among the options are a weighing system and electric/hydraulic in-cab controls. Price of the Maelstrom 8 model is £26,000, and tractor requirement is about 100hp.
