Easier applications

STANHAY has modified its F180 fertiliser applicator to enable the attachment to be fitted to the majority of precision seeders in its range.

The applicator uses contra-rotating, flexible polymer metering rollers mounted on bearings and powered by spur gears. These feed fertiliser to spring tine openers, which place the material below and alongside each row of seed.

Choice of settings

A variable drive system allows a choice of 19 rate settings, with high rate rollers providing a further 19 settings for extra heavy applications.

Each hopper has a capacity of 250kg and incorporates a flexible tube to enable left over material to be emptied out at the end of the operation.
