‘Premium Plus’ Range of Trailing Shoe Injectors
The new Premium Plus trailing shoe is a further development from the 2020 Duo dribble bar range which has been a real hit with agri contractors globally. This new trailing shoe range is a completely new design built range with no features or components repeated from the 2017 model.
It is designed for intensive use by contractors or large scale farms and will inter link with the company’s 1200m Bak Pak hose reeling system in a ‘piggy back’ arrangement. The unit can be tanker mounted on SlurryKat’s Premium Plus range and can also be fitted with an optional drag hose kit for umbilical use. The drag hose kit is also completely new with an integrated stainless steel swivel joint which allows 180 degree turns to be executed with ease.
28% lighter than previous models by incorporating novel design features and using high grade steel which is 68% stronger than standard steel of the same thickness. We have integrated many laser cut, press formed components into the machine which further allows weight reduction without compromising on strength.
The shoe is available in 7.5, 10 and 12 metre working widths. 10 and 12 metre models feature an incorporated land wheel so the shoes follow the field contours perfectly; a feature that adds a great deal of ergonomics for the operator.
The folding and unfolding of the latest machine is performed by a sequence system with the outer booms in the 10 and 12 metre models folding back underneath in a gullwing type arrangement. The entire beam of the unit oscillates and swings upwards meaning the shoes can be flipped up for headland turns without lifting the entire machine.
The shoes and springs design are also completely new with a cast hard wearing tip formed together with a neoprene nozzle for precise delivery of slurry to the ground. This new shoe arrangement was first seen on the company’s Farmline range and has now been incorporated onto the Premium models.
Trailing Shoe Injectors
Slurrykat's unique design of trailing shoe was designed with our extensive knowledge of slurry spreading in our contracts division over the past decade. The trailing shoe is designed mainly for use on grassland and arable land for applying slurry to the soil surface with minimum contamination to the plant leaves.
It is made up of a single beam frame carrying steering shoe elements which are fixed at 215mm (8.5") spacings. Each element has a steering of -15/+15deg, which allows constant application of the slurry while turning around curves.
The elements are fitted with a self sharpening share which parts the plant leaves allowing slurry to be delivered to the soil surface via a rubber injection cone, which is positioned directly behind the share.
This achieves a uniform line of slurry on the soil surface, which reduces nitrogen losses by up to 80% compared with the original splash plate method.
Odour from the slurry is also significantly reduced, with the reduction in contamination of the plant leaves, the trailing shoe system can be incorporated into rotational grazing system, whereby slurry can be applied after each grazing without affecting future grazing performance.
- Vogelsang Exacut
- 40mm Outlets
- Hydraulic drive
- Self sharpening knife design
- High efficiency stone/debris trap
- The Slurrykat trailing shoe can be used as part of an umbilical system or tanker mounted.
- In both applications it has beed proven to be highly efficient and ergonomic in all conditions
- The Slurrykat shoe can also be fitted with a splash plate for flexibility of use.
- As with all Slurrykat spreading equipment a Flowmeter system can be incorporated. This means that precise application rates can be achieved and monitored and best use of the slurry can be accurately achieved..
