A Dirty Job... Loncin Has The Power To Do It
The cost effective option of repowering machinery and equipment with the option of a petrol powered Loncin engine is becoming more and more appealing to original equipment manufacturers.
This proved to be the case for Wessex International, a manufacturer of high quality, British built machines for the agricultural and ground care markets. During a visit to Saltex in 2014, the UK’s national event for grounds care, sports, amenities, estates and green space management, the company was looking at ways to reduce the cost of their Dung Beetle Paddock Cleaner.
Manufactured in their Andover factory, the Wessex Dung Beetle MK2 MTX120E employs the latest laser cutting technology to produce a machine that is tough and durable with superior strength. Towed behind an ATV, UTV or tractor the Dung Beetle is now powered by a Loncin G160F-B, fourstroke 4.8hp horizontal shaft engine with 2:1 wet clutch reduction gearbox.
The machine works by means of a tried and tested collection system of spring tines that combines with the sweeping action of the bristles to effectively pick up stubborn muck while grooming the grass to encourage fresh growth, something you don’t get with vacuum machines. It is ideal for busy equestrian yards, racing and riding stables and private horse owners, as well as anyone grazing all types of animals, where a clean paddock is an essential part of day-to-day maintenance.
“We came across Loncin on the Barrus stand at Saltex and we were impressed with the track record and build quality of the engines and their competitive pricing. The G160F-B has proved very reliable with excellent performance characteristics,” commented Roy Wolfenden, General Manager, Wessex International
