Line spreading booms with skids


General points

The new JOSKIN Pendislide PRO spreading boom increases the spreading precision by perfectly following the ground relief and parting leaves. Thanks to its wear-resistant ertalon skids, it applies slurry on the ground after it opened a small groove in order to bring the nutrients as close as possible from the roots without dirtying the plants. Its efficiency and precision are maximum.

4 models of Pendislide PRO are available: 12 - 13,5 - 15 et 18 m with 25 cm row spacing. Even for such working widths, the design of the frame, combined with the action of the gauge wheels, allows to keep all skids on the ground, even on uneven terrain.


Sturdy and Ingenious Structure

It does not require a traditional 4-point linkage with a wheel diameter lower than or equal to 1,675 mm.

The four hydraulic rams allow to activate the anti-drip system (Twist), raise the boom above the mudguards for transport and lower it in order to spread.

This assembly also allows the use of an exact scatterer.

During manoeuvres, when the anti-drip system is lifted (at the row end), a pendulum effect is ensured by the 4 hydraulic rams. On hilly grounds, this horizontal balance protects the boom and ensures the required flexibility between the boom and tanker.


Efficient Spreading System

When spreading, the 2 gauge wheels with scrapers, one on each side of the boom, protect the boom from all strains by perfectly following the ground relief. In this way, and thanks to the independent movements on the left and right sides of the boom, the different parts of the structure can move freely and in this way all skids can optimally keep in contact with the floor.

The position of the skids in a 45° angle to the ground allows to ideally follow the unevennesses in all circumstances. For very steep areas, the skids can go down to 250 mm under the zero level. The flexion of the 70 mm bended leaves compensates small unevennesses.

The 25 cm row spacing ensures a high regularity of the working width.


As an option, two hydraulic valves of the RAMUS type, fitted with a stop device with manual adjustment, allow to limit the opening and easily adjust the flow or to only work with a half boom. The standard assembly includes two valves with manual adjustment.

Slurry is brought to the boom by means of a single or double feeding (option). With the double feeding (recommended from 15 m), a box gathers both flows.

The 2 vertical SCALPER© macerators ensure an efficient distribution of the slurry, whatever its type. An access to the macerator through a 6" quick coupling makes interventions easier.

The pressure of the skids on the leaves is usually adjusted between 7 and 9 kg. It can also be increased or lowered through the gauge wheels.


Folding System and Safety

Steered valves on the hydraulic rams as well as the support on which the boom is stored allow to lock the boom in folded position. Furthermore, the parts that touch each other during transportation are covered with ertalon in order to prevent shocks and steel clinking.

As an option from 15 m, the 2 boom ends can be fitted with a double hydraulic folding system (1.50 m on each side). In this way, the working width can be, if necessary, lowered by means of ball valves (option 3111 or 3888). It is also possible to fit them on shorter tankers.

In order to smoothly unfold the boom, the speed of the rod of the hydraulic ram is reduced at its course end by means of shock absorbers on the hydraulic rams of the anti-drip system (and vice-versa).

The boom is also – standard – fitted with an anti-crash safety device (of 80 cm), which allows the outer parts of the boom to retract in case of shock.


Particularly Careful and Quality Finishings

The boom is made up of galvanized steel for a fully-tested resistance.

Its frame is made up of steel sections, which are cut in the JOSKIN factories by a very modern and precise laser-tube.

The exclusive use of industrial knee-joints on the frame ensures a high wear resistance and even if they are subject to high strains, they have a long lifespan and a reduced maintenance time.

The skids are attached by wide fastenings to the hoses, which are fastened by moulded parts without sharp angles and edges. Furthermore, some leaves cross the frame from one end to the other in order to ensure a very sturdy structure (male/female assembly).

As an option, the ertalon skids can be replaced by cast steel models.

Stands are integrated to lay the boom on the ground.

Strong points of the range

Hydraulic folding.

All booms are fitted with a hydraulic folding system that has an insignificant overhang and that does not affect at all the driving of the carriage. During transport, the whole is fastened by a boom clipping system These has a height adjustment device and a craddle with a damping rubber.
  • The hydraulic folding system has the following specifications:
  • hydraulic safety device;
  • locking of the boom wings in transport position thanks to interlocking supports;
  • diagonally positioned rams (not vertically) to better hold the boom in position (reduction of the swinging movement).
For a higher safety, the folded boom is such that the position of the macerators is pointed inwards so as not to exceed the boom size. From 18 m wide, a double folding system is required.


The macerator is of utmost importance in order to make sure the spreading implement works properly. 9 m booms have one single macerator, while those from 12 m have two of them in order to get a greater reactivity at the beginning of the spreading phase and to reduce load losses (slurry is more uniformly spread).

Twist and anti-drip systems

JOSKIN booms (except the TWINJET) are all standard fitted with the (double acting) anti-drip lifting device with Twist system.
It allows a transport in a very clean way thanks to the complete rotation of the line spreading hoses, which prevents any loss of slurry on the road as well as in the fields when manoeuvring.
JOSKIN line spreading booms are standard fitted with the Twist system allowing a 150° rotation of the boom.
  • Besides this anti-drip function, the Twist system has other advantages:
  • it offers a limited overhang;
  • it allows, as an option, to spread with an exact scatterer without having to take off the boom. The macerator and two manual or hydraulic valves just have to be added.


JOSKIN booms are all standard fitted with the anti-crash device that offer an extra safety when working on hilly ground. Every boom wing is fitted with springs and articulations that, when spreading on a bumpy ground, retract the ends of the boom (max. 55 cm) if it hits the ground. Mounting the wings at the end of the oblong holes allows them to pivot and makes it possible to adjust their height.
