Hi-Spec adds weigh cell option to muck spreader

Hi-Spec Engineering has added the option of weigh cell and application rate monitoring systems for its Xcel 1250 rear discharge muck spreader.

To control application rate, an IsoBus-compatible RDS iSoscan Apollo touch screen terminal is used. This also allows work records to be stored, recalled and exported.

 

Weigh cells in the spreader ensure that discharge rates are constantly maintained and adjusted, by altering the speed of the spreader’s bed chains, irrespective of forward speed.

 

The Apollo system is also compatible with third party precision farming systems to enable variable rate application, and there is also the option of headland control which will automatically start and stop the spreader at the headland.

For those who just require a simple weighing system to monitor total application rate, Hi-Spec also offers the Digi-Star GT400 weighing system.

 

The weight indicator allows the user to monitor each load and to maintain a running total so the total for each field can be quickly and easily recorded, says the manufacturer.

 

Other updates to the Xcel 1250 include the option of a sprung drawbar for greater shock absorption and operator comfort.
