Designed for a wide variety of crop operations, the KUHN MDS .2 Series offers many features and options to help operators succeed in almost any broadcast fertilizer or cover crop application. A simple PTO drive and rugged low-maintenance gearbox operate twin spreading discs offering working widths of up to 80′ (depending on the product applied) to finish large areas quickly and efficiently.
Operators will also appreciate the increased capacity of the available hopper extensions to work longer between refills, while the octagonal bottom reduces bridging and sticking for even cleanout.
Redesigned metering outlet controls offer operators the choice of either hydraulic or electric options to ensure that the right rate of fertilizer or seed is applied to the field. With the hydraulic option, each outlet is controlled by its own dual-acting hydraulic cylinder connected to the tractor’s SCVs. For even more enhanced control, operators can choose the electric metering outlet control option. One actuator for each metering outlet ensures reliability and precision, all controlled through the simple E-Click switch box.
The position of the outlet opening indicators has also changed in order to offer improved operator comfort and easier viewing from the tractor seat. Optional border control and banding attachments direct product to where it can provide the greatest return on investment – feeding the crop.
For easy and convenient machine setup, the KUHN SpreadSet mobile app will guide operators through the information to ensure the right rate and spread pattern according to the product type, working width, and speed. Operators can download the free app to either their Android or iOS devices.
