G5 dry spreader announced as DOT's latest implement partner


A state-of-the-art dry fertilizer spreader is the latest implement DOT Technology Corp. has added to its fleet. The design made by New Leader Manufacturing (NLM) is being dubbed the G5.

The design is based of NLM’s NL5000 G5 series and has swath width control technology, allowing operators apply nutrients to the soil with pinpoint accuracy the company says.

“The company has a well-known history of leveraging technology to make its equipment more productive and effective. We are very excited to work together with them to offer farmers the opportunity to have a G5 spreader on their DOTPower Platform,” says Norbert Beaujot, president and founder of DOT.

According to a news release, the G5 can spread material in up to 16 sections, thereby reducing overlap, decreasing nutrient waste, and optimizing the placement of nutrients.

“We’re proud to be working with DOT on this exciting project. Both companies are committed to bringing versatile equipment to the marketplace that meets the needs of this ever-changing industry. We’re confident the combined solution between our companies will bring a real opportunity for growers to increase productivity and efficiency,” says Rob Rudolphi, NLM’s director of global business.

The product design was unveiled last week at the University of Arizona Maricopa research farm.
