The robust BACKHUS A 30 is the solution for composting on a smaller scale. With a maximum windrow width of 3 m and a turning capacity of up to 700 m3 , it is perfect for farms with a focus on livestock, for example. 

The BACKHUS A 30 has all the advantages of a self-propelled machine and thus enables the space-saving foot-to-foot placement of the windrows. It therefore does not require a tractor or an external drive. On top of that, the extremely easy-to-handle machine can also be placed very simply on a trailer, which makes it ideal for cooperatives and contractors in inter-site use.
