Kverneland fertiliser spreaders get 54m throw

Kverneland has revealed a host of new features for its Exacta spreader range ready for the 2015 season.

For a start, spread widths have stretched out to 54m on the Exacta HL and TL GEOspread when the spreaders are kitted out with high-lift vanes.

Owners can also check working widths and spreading potential using updated spreading charts available on the website www.kvernelandspreadingcharts.com, the AutosetApp on the IsoMatch Tellus terminal or via the app for smartphones.

The Autoset App connects the Tellus in-cab terminal with the spreader and automatically adjusts the spreader according to settings entered into the app by the operator.

After entering data into the terminal (working width, application rate, forward speed, distribution size and density of the fertiliser, and the selection of shape and product type), the operator is given setting advice for the product. This data can then be sent to the spreader, which automatically adjusts its settings to suit.

Additional changes include a hydraulic border spreading plate on all models except the entry-level Exacta EL, which provides control of border spreading from the tractor cab.

There is also a new ExactLine border spreading system, too. This is now available for left- and right-hand spreading, making it possible to spread in a very small field using both ExactLine mechanisms simultaneously.

Mudguards now protect the spreader against dirt and water being thrown up from the tractor wheels, while a new parking frame makes it easy to store and transport the spreader using pallet forks.

LED rear lights are also part of the standard specification on 2015 models.

Kverneland’s fertiliser spreaders are priced from £3,530.
