Mounting of a applicator, on the drill or separate 8 or 12 metres.


Evening all.

Recently purchased a Stocks turbo Jet 8 icon. This has been bought for a variety of reasons and as we are currently fitting it, making brackets and I'm keen to hear peoples feed back and how they have got around issues with theirs. The same or simular machines.

My problem is it fine on a 3 metre drill or cultivator for Grass and stubble turnips cover/ crops. However, it's intended to go on the rolls or a sprayer modified so we can Contract apply and or spread for other farmers and customers.

As its a turbo Jet 8, 8 metres is what they recommend for max working width. However, I've seen others using smaller machines or similar covering 12 metres. Is this possible with avadex being so small it'll blow easily through the pipes? If not it'll be 8 metres paired up to a GPS system to make sure we can stick accurately between the tramlines.

Any pictures and information by those doing or already done this will be much appreciated.
