Parts and Options

High-Rate Distribution

Distribution and Control

The hydraulically driven fan supplies the proportion of the fertiliser to a rear mounted mushroom distributor. While RDS control with radar speed sensing gives accurate application and distribution at all times with on-the-go adjustments available.  

Machine Versatility

 Compatible with a rear strip till or other implement to optimise the use of a one pass procedure.  

Easy Fill

The front purpose-built fold away step allows easy operator access for loading and inspecting.
