Kverneland has made several advancements in its disc spreader technology: the intelligent Disc Control (iDC) integrated hydraulic driveline uses two individually controlled hydraulic motors – one to power each disc. The iDC is available only for the Exacta TL GEOSPREAD model but it enables independent disc speed regulation on left and right-hand discs, opening up the possibilities for greater application accuracy.
Using a tractor’s Power Beyond capability, iDC can deliver a more consistent disc speed, maintained through disc speed monitoring. Without the constraints of a fixed PTO speed to operate a mechanical PTO driveline, fuel efficiency improvements are possible as a result of using much lower engine revs when spreading. The iDC spreader is for rear linkage use only and is priced from £28,849.
Kverneland’s weigh cell-equipped Exacta models now enable the CL GEOSPREAD, TL GEOSPREAD and TLX GEOSPREAD to be used in a front- and rear-mounted disc spreader combination. With the advanced software, the weigh-cell spreader’s location as a front-mounted implement is now easily set and managed through any universal terminal, creating a payload of up to 7,000 litres from a combination of front- and rear-hopper capacities and allowing for two separate applications with different fertiliser products, in one pass.
The CL GEOSPREAD, TL GEOSPREAD and TLX GEOSPREAD can also be equipped with an optional central hydraulic driveline to replace the PTO shaft. The ExactLine border spreading device can be specified for mounting on the left- or right-hand side of the spreader, so both machines can manage their border spreading on the same side.
