Meadow injectors make it possible to inject slurry in the ground while avoiding damages to the surface dressing as much as possible.
They are mounted on identical galvanized frames. This standardization makes it possible to interchange the spreading elements.
These single-beam frames are made of high tensile steel offering the best compromise between strength and lightness.
The highly compact design and the folding system of the injector lead to a particularly limited overhang, which allows to significantly reduce the strains at the back of the slurry tanker.
JOSKIN injectors are standard fitted with mechanical anti-drip pincers that automatically release the injection pipe when the injection element hits the ground (and inversely when the element leaves it).
Each pincer is fitted with a rounded jaw and a pinching stop in order to limit the wear to the rubber injection cone as much as possible. They can be replaced by hydraulic pincers.
Free steering elements
The injection elements are made up of 2 outlets and are fixed to the chassis by means of an axis. As a result, they can pivot by 30° in bends (15° to the left and 15° to the right) and the user does not have to lift the machine and does not damage the grass.
Models that are more than 3 m wide are fitted with a double acting (DA) hydraulic folding system in order to respect the prescribed transport width.
In this case, the folding system is fitted with the Lock-Matic© automatic locking in order to enhance the driving safety as much as possible, namely on the road. This locking device is operated by the same hydraulic function as the folding system, thanks to the steered valves.
The major advantage of the Multi-Action is its low weight. This meadow injector combines modularity, simplicity of the construction and requires little maintenance.
An appropriate structure
The Multi-Action is made up of a single-beam frame carrying free steering elements fixed with a 21.5 cm spacing. The end of each of them, which is fully galvanized and made up of two arms with independent deflection, is fitted with a self-sharpening share followed by an injection cone.
The cutting share makes a groove in the ground (between 0 and 3 cm deep), while the injection cone smoothly and homogeneously lays down the slurry in the middle of this groove without splashing the plants.
The stay springs, combined to the springs serving as mechanical shock absorbers, only start working from a given operating height and allow to apply the shares on the ground with a given pressure. This ensures ground clearance for the frame and a flexibility in the deflection of the elements.
The long arms on which the shares are fixed allow:
• to ensure a great deflection up to 25 cm to compensate the ground unevenness;
• to avoid all vibrations on the elements, even at a speed higher than 10km/h;
• to ensure a regular slurry deposit on the ground without splashing.
Locking the elements for transport
Once the injector is folded, the elements which are situated on the upper arms are maintained in position by a locking system. A simple notch prevents each element from making a rotation round its axis and from falling down. The elements remain thus very rigid in relation to the vibrations due to transport.
Several options are available to complete the equipment of your Multi-ACTION, notably:
• discs (Ø 250 x 3 mm) to be placed before the shares;
• a covering harrow;
• a mechanical or hydraulic side bumper.

The SOLODISC meadow injector is the ideal multi-functional implement for a highly precise spreading on your meadows. It is made up of discs with large diameter (406 mm x 19 mm), which makes it multi-functional both on meadows as on growing crops, stubble-fields, etc.
An appropriate structure
The Solodisc is made up of free steering elements that are fully galvanized and each fitted with a pair of discs, followed by a 2-position injection cone. The discs are placed at a distance of 21.5 cm from each other. As far as the injection cone is concerned, it is made up of a galvanized spout, an anti-drip pincer and a very flexible injection cone of profiled rubber.
The working depth can be adjusted (max. 6 cm) and is kept constant by means of the application of a constant pressure on the linkage. The pressure has simply to be modified, by means of an adjusting wheel, to adapt the working depth.
Besides, springs are used as mechanical shock absorbers and apply the discs with a given pressure on the ground, thereby limiting the injection depth variations and allowing a vertical deflection of the elements in order to adapt to the transverse ground unevenness (up to 25 cm). As an option, the springs can be replaced by a hydraulic cross-compensation system keeping the same ground pressure for each element (communicating vessels principle).
The Solodisc injector is also characterized by easily interchangeable discs. As a result, it is very easy to adapt the machine to your own needs. Self-sharpening discs (Ø 406 mm x 19 mm) are standard mounted on all machines. Made of cast steel, they are very resistant, and therefore everlasting. Another model is available as an option: Ø 300 x 3 mm with share. They allow to somewhat lighten the injector. They are combined to groove widening shares in order to keep a high spreading volume.
The discs are mounted on hubs with (tightening) conical bearings, which are hermetically closed and over-dimensioned. Because of the resistance of the Ø 406 mm discs, the Solodisc requires less maintenance, even if it has been used for years.
This new injector is intended for large farms and contractors.
