The Panien manure spreader body is built specifically for the
Hydro Trike XL to Vervaet’s own requirements to create the Hydro Trike
US - an extremely
accurate, high-capacity self-propelled spreader with low ground pressure
characteristics for minimal soil compaction. The body has a very generous 20 cubic metre capacity. The rear
slurry door is useful when spreading semi-liquid materials and can be
used to help adjust the application rate. All components are
hydraulically driven from the Trike's auxiliary pumps.
Two heavy-duty floor traces are used. These are driven from both
sides, and can be reversed to quickly and easily clear blockages. Two
beaters are used to finely shred even the most straw-rich manure and two
large-diameter discs evenly throw material to 24m. A border deflector is
used when spreading headlands to ensure the full rate is applied right
up to the edge in a controllable manner.
Accuracy is particularly impressive with the application rate
controlled automatically by Vervaet’s own Tri-Control colour touch
screen computer. The desired rate is set in the system along with the
product density and the computer varies the speed of the floor chain in
proportion to the machine’s forward speed to apply the correct amount.
Where the density of the material is unknown it can be measured in-field
using the body’s weigh cells by filling it level and weighing the known
volume. GPS-steering systems can also be used for further levels of
precision.The Tri-Control screen also displays important machine
and spreader data from engine rpm and hydraulic system pressure to
slurry door position. It also supplies useful machine monitoring
statistics such as fuel usage and work rate as well as customer or job
specific data which is appreciated by contractors and farmers alike.
With an extremely high level of accuracy, combined with first class
shredding, the spreader can deal with a huge variety of products of all
densities and consistencies ranging from lime through to sewage cake and
even the freshest straw-rich farmyard manure.
