Edewecht. BACKHUS, the specialist provider of professional composting, waste treatment and soil remediation solutions, has many years of experience manufacturing specialised plant for a range of applications. As the company celebrates its 30th anniversary it is once again demonstrating its innovative character and unveiling its BACKHUS A Series.
The A Series is currently made up of 12 different models of windrow turner ranging from the BACKHUS A 30 to the BACKHUS A 75 – with the digits referring to a model’s maximum working breadth (for example, the BACKHUS A 50 turns heaps up to 5m wide). This means the company can provide the ideal machine for every task. The BACKHUS A 30 is not only robust and compact but also easy to use and low-maintenance while the BACKHUS A 75 – the largest mass-produced turner in existence – can turn soil at a staggering rate of 6,800 m³/h.
All of the machines in the new line feature enhanced levels of comfort in the driver’s cabin, state-of-the-art fittings and simplified access to elements relevant to maintenance and inspections. The BACKHUS A Series replaces the 6, 16, 17, and 21 Series.
The theory and practice of the new machines was presented for the first time at the 5th International BACKHUS Conference 2015 in Munich at the end of May. 50 trading partners from 25 countries took part in the event. Turner demonstrations took place on the site of BACKHUS-customer Wurzer Umwelt GmbH and were a big hit with the industry professionals present. Jens Wiechmann, Head of Sales: “Our presentation of the BACKHUS A Series went down very well with the dealers and agents. It looks like our innovations have caught the zeitgeist.”
In addition to the BACKHUS A Series the company is also set to unveil the BACKHUS B 55 – a windrow turner specially geared to the requirements of the Asian and South American market.
