PICHON - Trailing shoe (2008) - 2 stars
EQUIPMENT AND SPREADING APPARATUS FOR MANURE
The PICHON injector EL 8 is mounted on the rear of the tank either direct on the injector brackets or through an existing linkage.
It's made from a rigid chasis onto which a mobile chasis is fitted. This mobile chasis can move left and right.
In folded position, this movement allows to follow the field irregularities and avoid any extra pressure of the spring leaves onto the ground.
This mobile chasis is made of 3 arms of 2.5 m each: central arm, right arm and left arm. Total working width is 7.5.
Folding and unfodling is cisors type hydraulically driven.
This mobile chasis is mounted onto an articulation which bring the shoes down in working position and up on transport.
On each of these arms, 34 leave springs are mounted spaced of 21 cm. It gives the necessary flexibility for non flat fields. The pipes, blades and shoes are mounted onto the leaf spring.
The EL 8 comes as standard with the PICHON vertical macerator, stone trap and autoreverse, already known for easy maintenance, and to accept high flow of heavy slurry.
The EL8 is mainly used on grassland. The blades open the grass where slurry is released.
The pressure onto the blades make a light opening according to the working conditions to applicate the slurry.
