The DM 10.5m Band Spreader is close coupled to the tanker without the need for special bracketry resulting in a lightweight solution. A very important feature is that it is carried on the tanker chassis independent of back door. It is equipped with the Vogelsang distributor with 42 outlet pipes placing the slurry on the ground in neat rows at 250mm spacings, the optimum for best practice application.
This lightweight, fully galvanized applicator’s key features are its strength and design. The extended boom tips are hydraulic folding, which add the benefit of a break back system should the booms be positioned too close to field or paddock boundaries. 1.5m folding tips, which are inclined inward, create a compact machine behind the transporting tanker.
The new 10.5m Trailing Shoe reduces in field compaction while accurately placing nutrients precisely on the crop. The 10.5m Trailing Shoe is fitted with a Vogelsang macerator, evenly distributing the slurry over each of its outlets at 250mm spacings. All outlet pipes are fitted with steel wear points and rubber outlets feeding slurry in even lines behind the Trailing Shoe. These are independently sprung to ensure consistent soil contact. The machine folds into a neat transportable solution on the tanker.
The Abbey Trailing Shoe technology distributes the slurry on the ground underneath the canopy of the grass. This ensures nutrients are absorbed faster, leaf contamination is reduced, and carbon emissions are reduced to the absolute minimum.
