KUHN Farm Machinery has updated the spreading module on its range of AXIS fertiliser spreaders with a new system that is capable of making infinite spreading pattern adjustments.
The new Varispread Dynamic spreading module replaces the Kuhn VS 8 system which limited spreading section control across eight sections (four spreading to the left, four spreading to the right).
The new system uses fast-acting electrical actuators to continuously alter and adjust the spreading unit’s drop points, outlet positions and disc rotation speed on hydraulically driven machines. By altering these three attributes, the Varispread Dynamic module can produce an infinitely adjustable spreading pattern across the machine’s entire working width.
The actuators operate at high speed for improved spreading accuracy and can produce an accurate spreading pattern even when working at high forward operating speeds. The new system can be controlled either manually or via GPS to prevent over-spreading at field margins.
The new Varispread Dynamic system is available as standard on Kuhn’s AXIS 40.2 M EMC W and AXIS 50.2 M EMC W machines and can be operated via Kuhns’s Quantron A or E-2 control units. The Varispread Dynamic system can also be used in conjunction with all major GPS positioning and guidance systems.
The Varispread 4 spreading module with four controllable sections (two spreading to the left, two spreading to the right) remains available on Kuhn’s MDS 19.1 Q, AXIS 20.2 W, AXIS 40.2 W and AXIS 20.2 M EMC W machines, and can also be specified on the AXIS 40.2 M EMC W.
