The skirt has a continuous bottom edge (25) which extends in a plane which runs substantially at right angles with respect to the axis of rotation and runs with respect to the floor at said angle, in such a way that a lowest point (26) of said bottom edge contacts the floor and/or the feed lying thereon and the skirt rotates about said axis of rotation when the vehicle is displaced in a direction of travel as a result of said contact in order to displace the feed lying on the floor in a direction at right angles to the direction of travel of the vehicle by means of the outer surface of the rotating skirt. The skirt carrier is connected to the frame so as to be swivelable about a swivel axis which runs substantially vertically. The position of the lowest point of the bottom edge of the skirt, viewed in the peripheral direction of said bottom edge, is adjustable by swivelling the skirt carrier about the swivel axis.
