Placing fertilizer where it needs to go can prove challenging, especially along roads, fencerows and bending contours of a field.
But navigating fields and hitting the spot should be easier with the new Javelin sectional spreader from Salford BBI. “It’s the first precision spreader on the North American market to achieve a true 120-foot spread swath and drive interval,” explains Salford Group Sales Director Lee Kilpatrick.
The new Javelin was on display in February at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky. In this video, Kilpatrick explains how the new spreader effectively gives the operator “the ability to shut off the left or the right side of the swath, to effectively knock down half the swath.”
The machine is designed to spread urea up to 120 feet. The operator “can do 60 feet out the right, 60 feet out the left and dynamically control the conveyor,” says Kilpatrick.
