A large selection of spreaders and an 18t trailer take the stage at the Royal Highland Show

  • G T Bunning and Sons will return to the Royal Highland Show 2024 on a larger stand, allowing the company to display a wider selection of its spreaders alongside an 18t version of the recently launched trailer range

The new stand, on Avenue C, will display a Lowlander 175 HBD featuring Isobus with weigh cells for increased accuracy; a Lowlander 120 Hybrid model with Widebody augers; and a small Lowlander 90 TVA, which will appeal to farmers looking for a cost-effective option to undertake spreading works in-house.

Bunning is a regular at the annual event in Ingliston, and Ben Johnson, UK and Ireland sales manager at Bunning, says it is a great platform to connect with customers across the north of England, Scotland and further afield.

“The Highland Show is a valuable event in our calendar. It allows us the opportunity to catch-up with existing users that we don’t have the chance to see on a regular basis and meet new customers. With a larger stand, we can highlight the benefits of a wider selection of our machines to visitors at the show.”

Alongside the spreaders, it will be the first showing in Scotland for Bunning’s new trailer range, following its launch at LAMMA earlier this year. Bunning built its first trailer in 1963 but paused production in 2010 due to the increased demand for its spreader models. A recently completed factory extension has allowed additional production capacity to restart the line.

The model on the stand will be an 18t version, which has been built to order for its new owner. A redesigned tailboard, High Load BKT tyres, ADR axles with larger bearings, multi-leaf suspension, and a smooth internal body that is tapered to the rear by 100mm to help loads exit, are all standard features on the four-model range.

Ben concludes: “There has been a lot of interest in our relaunched trailer line and we are excited to bring it to Scotland for the first time. It complements the spreader range nicely and we are looking forward to welcoming visitors onto our stand this year.”
