Compost turners are used to mix and stir compost material in commercial composting operations. Compost turners, sometimes called windrow turners, are designed to traverse trapezoidal windrows. There are front loader mounted turners where the operator simply drives close alongside the pile and the turner picks the material up, mixes it, then deposits it behind the machine. Straddle machines work just as their name implies by passing over the compost rows with the compost underneath the machine. Pull behind turners are designed to be pulled by a tractor or loader and may be self powered or may take their power from a PTO on the tractor pulling them. The operator typically drives alongside the pile and the turner aerates and leaves it behind the machine as the operation proceeds. Most operator’s go with rubber tires, but on soft ground or otherwise marginal conditions, a tracked machine can operate under more severe ground conditions.

We just purchased this unit with the thought of going completely through the machine and re-painting the machine as well. What we’ve found is a very sound machine that needs a little TLC to get it back in good operating condition. So we’re going to be offering this machine basically “as is” for a very attractive price first before we go to all the work of sandblasting, primering and re-painting the machine. Many people would rather see the machine they’re going to purchase in its “working clothes”. The machine will be completely checked over and any and all repairs made —-> Read the Rest
