New to the market is a mounting kit to fit a Stocks Ag Turbo Jet 10 to a trailed Sky EasyDrill. The kit allows separate metering and accurate application of Avadex through an additional set of outlets behind the drill’s press wheel.
The mounting kit is designed to integrate with the Sky EasyDrill and consists of a loading platform, steps and guard rail to meet all safety regulations and maintain a safe environment for the operator.
The Turbo Jet was displayed at this summer’s Groundswell event. It is specified for the 6m Sky EasyDrill, has been colour matched, fitted with a 240-litre hopper and includes an Avadex feed block metering roller, 32mm seed hoses and 10 outlet spreader plates.
Stocks Ag aftersales director Tim Farrow said: “With this new option, we aim to meet the needs of Sky EasyDrill owners looking for an applicator that will precisely meter and accurately spread Avadex granules through a separate distribution circuit.
“Granules are applied directly to the seed bed behind the drill allowing for a consistent even spread pattern. The application accuracy of the Turbo Jet mounted on a Sky drill has been independently tested and exceeds NSTS requirements.”
The goal is for an even application. The applicator fitting kit is also available for the 4m and 8m EasyDrill; 4m specified with a Turbo Jet 8 (8 Outlets), whilst the 8m EasyDrill is specified with the Turbo Jet 10 (20 outlets), with the option of a 400lt hopper.
For ease of operation, the Turbo Jet 10 is fitted with the intuitive i-CON Control, which allows for rates to be automatically controlled in proportion to forward speed for ultimate accuracy.
When the Turbo Jet is not being used for Avadex application, it can be used as an additional applicator enabling a fully specified drill to apply five products at once through three different outlets.
