Bredal launches monster spreader with 48 metre working width

Bredal has introduced the new K-XE series of trailed spreaders that can spread lime up to 30 meters and prilled fertiliser up to 48m.

Danish manufacturer of lime and mineral fertilizer spreaders Bredal, has introduced the K-XE series of trailed spreaders that can spread lime up to 30 metres and prilled fertiliser up to 48m, thanks to a new six meter wide and foldable XE spread section.

 

XE stands for extended version. This includes a hydraulic folding side transfer belt, feeding discs situated three meters either side of the spreader.

 

The XE spread sections are offered for the towed spreaders K105XE, K135XE and K165XE, all of which can be used for spreading both lime and fertilizers. The units are ISOBUS-controlled and can be supplied with weigh cells, GPS controlled section closure and border spreading as well as GPS allocation maps.

 

There is a wide selection of spreading discs, to optimize spreading of different lime and mineral fertilizer grades.

The largest version, the K165-XE, holds up to 25 tons of lime and all three XE models can spread up to 2,200 kg per minute. With the spreading width of 30 meters, the tracks can be used for spreading lime when the crops are established.

 

Anders Buhl, company director says; “This prolongs the season for spreading lime, and thus the capacity can be better utilized.” Less uniform product such as urea can be accurately spread to 40m the firm says, making good use of 36m tramlines.

 

The manufacturer first showed the concept at Agritechnica 2017, claiming it had much interest in the product. Preproduction models have been running, with orders for the latest system being taken from April 2020.
