Just two weeks ago, Distag made their annual trip to Europe’s largest outdoor event, the National Ploughing Championships in Screggan Co. Offaly. This year, the Distag team were featuring on the 3 separate customer’s stands; Atkins, Keltec and Smyth trailers.
Atkins based in Co. Cork are the main dealer of Bredal fertilizer spreaders in Ireland. Bredal have recently agreed to fit the Powerbrake RT to their trailed fertilizer spreaders due to its reliable, simple & safe design.

Also, on the Keltec machinery stand, Distag featured a demonstration unit of the Powerbrake RT, which the engineering firm are fitting as standard to their 10 pack bale trailers.
While the weather remained fine on Day 1 & 3 of the event, Day 2 seen the conditions deteriorate. Heavy rain saturated crowds of people and even forced some stands to close! Some minor flooding began to appear at the Keltec stand but we didn’t let this drown our spirits.

Featured on the Smyth trailers stand was Distag’s newest innovation; the Powersteer unit. This is a positive steering design which can be used with tandem and tri axle trailers, allowing trailers to be steered both in forward and reverse.
Smyth had the Powersteer unit on their tri axle Supercube, a high capacity trailer designed for large farmers & contractors. Due to its immense size, this trailer gathered a lot of interest from passersby, who were impressed to see the manoeuvrability of the machine in addition to its size.
