Kuhn MDS 17.1
Accurate Application Rate Control
Nothing could be simpler than changing the application rate from one field to another. It can be done by positioning an opening stop on the continuous proportional direct flow control D.F.C. scale. With its help, you can modify the application rate without any extra equipment. The principle: The opening position is modified by the same percentage as the application rate. This means for example that you simply increase the opening by 10% for a 10% higher application rate.
Ensure a Smooth Fertilizer Discharge
A slowly rotating agitator (only 180 RPM) provides a regular flow of fertilizer on the spreading discs without damaging the granules and without clogging the outlet. The longevity of the components is ensured with the 100% stainless steel hopper bottom, agitator shaft and outlets.
Spread on Two Rows
This stainless steel equipment, intended for row plantations such as orchards, vineyards or specialty vegetables, has adjustable flaps that apply fertilizer on two rows of variable width and with a spacing which is 100% variable. This ensures that all nutrients arrive in the root area of the row crops and that valuable fertilizer is saved. It can be quickly and easily adjusted without tools.
Maintenance-Free Core Component
A reinforced oil-bath gearbox drives the spreading discs and the agitator.
The sturdy heart of the machine stands out by its long service life also in difficult conditions. The agitator shaft is made of treated stainless steel.
This gearbox only requires an oil change once every ten years!
