Line Spreading Booms

Vogelsang General Points

General Points

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.
Vogelsang Topswing


The ends are hydraulically folded to 180° and placed on the basis boom to reduce the transport width.

Vogelsang Drop-stop


During transport on road, the line hoses are folded upwards to 180° to prevent the slurry from flowing on the road.

Vogelsang Rear TeleShift

Rear TeleShift

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.

Vogelsang DoubleFold


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.

Vogelsang Spacing


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.

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.
