Completed in early 2020, this open-front farm machinery shed built at Derrinallum provides effective and accessible machinery storage.
Size: 56m x 30m x 6m
Location: Derrinallum VIC
Build Date: 2020
- The shed design consists of seven 8-metre bays which is one of the most popular bay sizes for both hay sheds and machinery sheds – although we are seeing more of a trend towards 8.5-metre bay widths and bigger. During the hay season, three 2.4 metre-long square bales will be able to be stacked between the columns, and stacked six high, making the shed a versatile investment.
- The 30-metre span width provides adequate length for a B-double, while being six metres high ensures the shed has enough clearance for machinery such as air seeders.
- A clear and well-prepared site around the shed makes access easier and safer for long machinery – the importance of good site preparation shouldn’t be underestimated.
- A custom gutter system means that downpipes are not required down the face of the columns.
