AVAcast GR 400

Avacast Gr mounted to Cousins Contour rolls

Avacast Gr mounted to Cousins Contour rolls

The Avacast GR 400 is typically mounted on large rolls or drills.    Reducing the number of passes on the field reduces soil compaction and fuel costs. The unit has a 400 Liter hopper and uses the Techneat rate controller to monitor forward speed and adjust automatically using a Garmin GPS sensor. Different distribution heads are availible to suit all widths - outlets are the well proved twin spreader plates giving 500mm spacing across the machine.

The machine comes with a additional slug pellet cartridge making the unit dual purpose. This will accurately place slug pellets at 500mm spacing.

The machines are supplied as a kit ready to be fitted including all hosework/clamps wiring kit etc.

AVACAST GR 400 TRAILED

The Avacast GR 400 trailed unit is one of the most versatile and easy to use "straight to field" appllicators on the market. The unit can be towed behind a 450cc quad bike or UTV. The trailer unit has a wide track to reduce ground pressure. Using the well respected GEO BOOM ensuring that the boom travels level across even the roughest terrain - 12m or 15m configurations are possible. The machine uses a reliable Honda 5,5HP engine to drive the fan unit and Garmin GPS unit to drive the metering unit with a Techneat rate control system. The machines will accurately apply Avadex across the working width - making use of a tunable distribution head to ensure NSTS compliance. The units are set up ready to go. Just add Avadex and some petrol and go spreading!

The units will also supply Slug pellets (OSR or any other small seeds) accurately with the adjustable rotor also supplied in the kit.

*Please note the unit is not rated for road use.

The 24m Avacast GR 1200 has a large 1200 litre hopper and 24m hydraulic lift and fold boom combination.  It mounts with a  CAT  3 rear linkage.  The large hopper minimises the potential exposure of the operator to Avadex. The boom features full suspension and hydraulic control of lift, fold and level.

The machine has two metering systems allowing independent control of each boom section. The control system is monitored from the cab and uses Garmin GPS for variance in forward speed. The high output hydraulic fan delivers ample airflow to carry the Avadex to the double spreader plates mounted at 500mm spacing along the boom.

Key Features

  • Powerful hydraulic fan
  • Large 1200 litre hopper
  • Metering matched to forward speed via Garmin GPS
  • Supplied with slug pellet cartridges
  • Double metering units with independent control.

The hopper is 400 Litres and booms are available in either manual fold 12m or 15m. All booms are the GEO Boom type that give very good stability across varying terrain. The fan is driven by hydraulic oil from the tractor. The output of the machine is monitored via a Garmin GPS module that varies output in accordance with forward speed. A tunable distribution head ensures NSTS compliance. The unit is supplied NSTS tested ready to go along with hydraulic hoses to ensure an easy set up.

Key Features

  • Hydraulic fan
  • Manual fold Boom
  • NSTS certificate
  • Hydraulic hoses included
