THE GEO SPREAD SYSTEM ON THE MEDIUM MODEL weighing spreader makes it possible to manually or automatically adjust the working width via an Isobus terminal. Based on previous coverage, field borders, headlands and task data, the automatic section control of the spreader adjusts the working width and dosing system by a GPS positioning system for overlap and coverage with minimum over-and under dosing.

For example, when driving in a wedge or irregular shaped field, the product will start to adjust the working width step by step, so there is no need to change any settings on the spreader or the Isobus terminal. The working width of the device is divided into a maximum of 14 sections of two meters wide. The disc rotation speed is kept constant and the discharge point is adjusted. This allows the spreader to accurately switch-off section by section, from one side to the other, until it gets to the last outer section in a wedged headland for example. This means the 2-m sections can be switched inside-out and outside-in to keep overlaps to the minimum and save fertilizer.
