Sprayer mounted slug pellet applicator

We are currently in the process of going to 36m and are wondering what the options are for spreading slug pellets off the sprayer to 36m. We don’t want the stocks twin spreaders as were not convinced they can cover the distance and also we do a lot of road work and don’t want to loose any visibility at junctions.
The only other option we can find is from techneat , just wondering what’s people’s experience of them and has anybody any other suggestions?

2 spreaders on the back of a gator? I had mine on the front of the sprayer and visibility is not all that bad imo. The hoppers are easily removed to if thats a option.

It’s got to be sprayer mounted for potatoes , and we’re not convinced the stocks will spread to 36m reliably ?

I had just the 1 stocks but sprayer was 24m for beds. When it was set up right it seemed to do the correct width. Providing on the size pellet and wind speed. Ive seen a fair few 36m sprayers with the 2 on though so imagine they are capable

Your right, the Stocks duo will only spread to 30m and can t get it any better. This is on a Bateman RB35 at front and discs are head high and running at correct speed (SCS test and tester).
I am having same problem as I have just extended to 36m from 32m.
Problem with Techneat is cost but worse is that when boom folded on a Bateman , the satellite spreaders are the highest point and with overhanging trees and wires, it's only a matter of time that I would damage or rip them off around here .
Interested in replies.

Would it not be possible to spray at 36 and spread at a accurate 18m spread and then when field is sprayed go back across the bits inbetween if that makes sence. I no its more travel across the field and wheelings but if a gator say is not viable im not sure what to suggest

With a workload that’s already stretched we just wouldn’t have the time , it’s looking likely that techneat is the only answer .

Personally never used one but maybe only option, im sure ive seen something from techneat for the back of a potatoe planter though. Maybe thinking of something completly different mind
