The KUHN MDS range of fertilizer spreaders offers a simple and integrated solution for a diversity of operations. This includes specialized crops, such as vineyards, orchards and vegetables, as well as row crop and livestock farms.
KUHN MDS .1 Series fertilizer spreaders are well suited for professional use in vineyards, orchards, hops and vegetable fields. The MDS .1 Series offers operators long working life and low maintenance. This MDS fertilizer spreaders feature the Direct Flow Control (DFC) system for easy adjustment of application rate for accurate fertilizer and seed distribution. With adjustable spreading paddles, the Multi-Disc System (MDS) spreading discs are able to spread all types of granular fertilizer with high accuracy and wide spreading patterns. In addition, they will also quickly and accurately spread cover crop seed.
The MDS 10.1 and 12.1 have narrow dimensions for easier use in orchards and vineyards, without the risk of damaging crops. Design features, such as the broken hopper angles of the MDS 10.1, allow use in ultra-narrow row applications.
Features may include:Multi-Disc System (MDS)
The MDS spreading discs provide consistent performance during standard spreading, late top spreading, as well as yield optimized spreading at field boarders. For your comfort, all this is possible at set working widths without removing, or changing the discs or paddles.
The MDS provides high application rate accuracy as well as exact spreading patterns for different fertilizers, and common crop and forage seeds. Depending on the type of material and the working width, the length and orientation of the paddles can be adjusted precisely with the tool provided. Thanks to their well-marked, three-dimensional position indicator, you can set the paddles quickly and easily.Slow-Rotating Agitator
A slowly rotating agitator (only 180 rpm) provides a regular flow of fertilizer to the spreading discs without damaging the granules and without clogging the outlets. The longevity of the components is ensured with the 100% stainless steel hopper bottom, agitator shaft and outlets. Specialty agitators are available for powdery products or grass seed.The Double-Overlap Method
The double-overlap method doubles your protection against over or underapplying product by taking advantage of the natural spread pattern created by KUHN twin-disc fertilizer spreaders. The triangular spread pattern provides consistent distribution, which reduces the impact of driving error or improper adjustments. Utilizing this method, KUHN spreaders provide high-accuracy spreading.
