Precision spreading without wind resistance



Spreading width (m)

from 9 to 12


Line Spreading Booms


General Points

The Penditwist START is a dribble bar spreading boom with a working width of 9 m, 10.5 m or 12 m. Designed to meet the specific needs of owners of medium-sized tankers, it offers a quality adapted spreading solution at an attractive price. Very robust thanks to its structure made of high tensile steel profile tubes,  it also benefits from a complete galvanization ensuring an optimal protection against corrosion and a long lifespan. The hoses fitted, with a 25-cm spacing (28 cm on 12-m model), lay the slurry at the foot of the plants, without contaminating them. The Penditwist START is therefore a real specialist in meadow fertilisation. As big brother of the Penditwist BASIC, the Penditwist START allows to increase the yield without increasing the tank overall dimensions thanks to the double rear folding system. This boom is also compatible with a large number of tankers. It can also be fitted on tankers with a linkage, a pre-equipment for integrated linkage or even directly on the rear buttresses. Including an automaton with direct connection to the tractor, the Penditwist START has all the electrohydraulic equipment it needs to work properly, both in open and closed circuit.



Easy Fitting

3 types of pre-equipment are available to fit a Penditwist START spreading boom on a JOSKIN tanker. The first pre-equipment, available on Modulo2, requires rear buttresses: it consists of bolted boom supports and two tie rods bolted on either side of the support for more stability. Designed to be as close as possible to the tanker in order to reduce the overhang, it is also height-adjustable in order to keep an optimal working angle of the spreading boom of  45°,  regardless of the size of the tyres.  The second pre-equipment is available for all other tankers that do not have a hydraulic linkage, but are fitted with a pre-equipment for an integrated linkage. Finally, the third solution concerns tankers with a complete hydraulic linkage.


Eccentric SCALPER® Macerator

This macerator has a variable counter blade opening that allows an extremely precise dosing of the quantity to be spread, regardless of the desired flow rate. To do this, a hand-accessible thumbwheel allows the operator to change the flow rate according to the type and quantity of material to be spread.For an homogeneous distribution of the matter the macerator has a single knife unit in the form of a diabolo that rotates eccentrically on the Hardox counter blade. The central venting system through the middle of the diabolo with two inlets allows a smooth flow of the liquid in the various hoses to the ground, without suction effect. In addition to its compact design the eccentric SCALPER macerator is equipped with quick-opening side lids and a stone trap guaranteeing a quick and easy maintenance. This novelty is now part of the standard equipment of all    spreading boom models with or without skids and of the Solodisc XXL disc injector.

PENDITWIST START Control Automaton

Control Automaton

An automaton with control box is part of the standard equipment of the spreading boom: only a single-acting connection, a free return plug, a Load Sensing signal (optional) and an electric plug are necessary for the boom to work properly. No pre-equipment is required on the tanker. The spreading boom can be used in manual or automatic mode. As a standard, a switch allows to reverse the rotating direction of the macerator in order to cut any foreign material blocking the macerator outlets and causing a pressure increase. As a standard, two switches are integrated into the control box to prevent the spreading boom from unfolding on the road and thus ensure safety during transport.


TWIST Anti-Drip System, LOCK MATIC Security

This Twist anti-drip system lifts the boom and therefore prevents any slurry drops on the road or losses in the field when maneuvering. When traveling in transport mode, e.g. on public roads, the Lock Matic system ensures that your spreading boom is secure; it is automatically locked by clamps on a stop integrated into its frame. Another major advantage for transport is that the boom also benefits from an autonomous double rear folding system. This last allows to keep a maximum compactness once the boom is folded but also to avoid extra brackets on the tanker.



To guarantee additional safety even on hilly ground, the Penditwist START is equipped as standard with an "anti-crash" system that allows its extremities to fold up automatically when it hits an obstacle.
