An optimal and comfortable working environment

A professional self-propelled manure spreader is nothing without a professional driver who can work comfortably for hours on end, if need be, without becoming too tired. That’s why all Vervaet self-propelled machines, including the Hydro Trike, are furnished with the most modern, luxurious and spacious cabs with a large area of glass. The controls for the entire machine are within easy reach: the gear lever and the terminal are located in the adjustable armrest.

Reliability is what counts when a lot of work must be done in a short amount of time. This applies in particular to manure application. That's why Vervaet opts for reliable quality components and parts, such as DAF PACCAR diesel engines. In the Hydro Trike, this is a 530 hp six-cylinder diesel engine which delivers its maximum capacity and torque at less than 1,400 t/min. Often, 1,250 t/min are enough to be able to get the job done.

Vervaet is also committed to quality in terms of hydraulics, offering two adjustable Sauer-Danfoss pumps for the hydraulic drive. The rear axle drive is a combination of a large hydraulic engine with a mechanical cardan shaft for optimal traction. Dispensing occurs by means of a fully automatic and unique delivery control, depending on the dose, driving speed, and swathe.


For optimum weight distribution, the engine is installed underneath the cab, to the left. It is easily accessible for maintenance by means of a large door, which is useful for cleaning and replacing filters.

Self-cleaning radiator

The radiator is located to the right of the vehicle, far away from the combustion engine. The reversing ventilator automatically cleans the radiator, leaving you with nothing to do. An easy, life-extending solution.

This is why you opt for a self-propelled machine
When the work must be done rapidly, efficiently and in a soil-friendly manner
Capacity along with soil-friendliness, efficiency and accuracy

Once you are used to using a Vervaet Hydro Trike or Hydro Trike XL and a Panien surface-mounted spreader to spread your solid manure, compost, poultry manure, sewage sludge and/or thickened digestate, you will never want anything else! The reliable basic vehicle combined with the fully automatic and unique delivery control are a joy to work with. You can even opt for a weighing system for location-specific work. Key advantages over pulled manure spreaders are the soil-friendly set-up of the three or five wheels and the extremely short turning radius. With only one wide wheel per track and, optionally, a pressure exchange system perfected by Vervaet, the Hydro Trike is extremely soil-friendly.

Vervaet has deliberately decided against using dog steering to realise optimal spreading. The Hydro Trike Universal Spreader always drives straight, and that also applies to the spreader tables. So there is no "distorted" spreading picture, but the right dose everywhere! On flat as well as hilly terrains.
