KUHN UPGRADES SPREADER RANGE FOR GRASSLAND, MIXED, ORCHARD AND VINEYARD OPERATIONS

KUHN Farm Machinery has re-launched its Multi-Disc System (MDS) fertiliser spreaders with a range of machines offering increased spreading width and greater hopper capacities than earlier models.

The MDS 8.2, 14.2, 18.2 and 20.2 all have the capability of spreading quality fertiliser reliably from 10 metres and up to 24 metres when fitted with the newly developed M2 discs. All models are available with either hydraulic or electric rate control; or they can be used with Quantron A electronic control for automatic groundspeed related application rate adjustment and GPS compatibility.

Maximum hopper capacity on the MDS 8.2 is 800 litres and rises to 2,000 litres on the MDS 20.2 when the largest extension is fitted.

Individual control of right and left hand discs allows half width spreading as standard on all models. Application rate is set quickly and easily through the proportional adjustment of patented graduated plates, which are positioned at the front of the machine to be easily visible from the tractor cab. With rates as low as 3kg/ha possible, the MDS range is well suited to applying seeds and slug pellets, and with easily interchangeable M1 and M2 discs, can be adapted to apply fertiliser for specialist crops, normal spreading or late top dressing. A slow rotating agitator eliminates the risk of fertiliser damage and makes it possible to spreader powders or organic (pelleted) fertilisers.

Border spreading to left or right is a standard feature via the adjustment of vanes or can be achieved with the in-cab monitored Telimat deflectors.

MDS spreaders are equipped with a maintenance-free gearbox (first oil change is recommended after 10 years use), and long service life is ensured using stainless steel or corrosion-resistant materials for the hopper bottom, valves, discs, vanes, border spreading limiters and pivot pins.

The smaller MDS 8.2 and 14.2 models are designed with narrow hopper widths (1.08m and 1.4m respectively), making them more practical for use in orchards and vineyards. Spreading mode can be adapted to apply only in cultivated rows in these situations.

Starting prices of the basic MDS machines range from £5,783 to £5,892.
