VOGELSANG line spreading booms allow to spread on widths up to 36 m.
Despite their large working widths, they were designed so as to reduce the weight as much as possible and to guarantee a certain compactness during transport.
For an homogeneous slurry distribution in the line spreading hoses and a precise spreading, VOGELSANG booms are fitted with two ExaCut macerators feeding 40 or 48 outlets.
The ends are hydraulically folded to 180° and placed on the basis boom to reduce the transport width.
During transport on road, the line hoses are folded upwards to 180° to prevent the slurry from flowing on the road.
This optional telescopic system with hydraulic ram at the back of the boom allows to reduce the transport length by moving 6 line spreading hoses closer together on each side. The front ends of the boom are telescopic and can be folded for the transport.
The DoubleFold option offers the possibility to manually reduce the working width with 1.5 m on both sides of the boom (section breaking through manual valves or ComfortFlowControl widely recommended to prevent overlapping at the boom end). This device is very useful when working at the field edge.
For a working width of 24 m, it is possible to choose a 25 cm spacing instead of 30 cm. The 40/40 macerators are then replaced by 48/48 ones.
