The purpose behind the Duo was its dual purpose use, it can be used on an umbilical system where it will carry the long established SlurryKat Bak-Pak hose reeling system or it can be mounted on the back of a tanker for spreading directly from the tanker. No other dribble bar offers such flexibility and diverse simplicity of use.
In September 2019 at the National Ploughing Championships we previewed our latest spreading technology offering a completely new 12 metre duo dribble bar, vertical folding model which also incorporates our unique double macerator design. This unique design means the unit can apply slurry to the steepest side cast slopes with total accuracy due to the double feed design to each boom individually with the slurry.
The reeler also can carry a 1200m capacity hose reeler that can be dropped off with ease in the corner of the field after the hose deployment has been completed to allow spreading with the dribble bar without the unnecessary weight of the reeler on the tractor, which greatly reduces ground compaction. Other key features of the dribble bar include the inclusion of the German manufactured Vogelsang distributor heads, which from 2007 have proven they are significantly superior to other units seen on the market for performance, reliability and their almost maintenance free self-sharpening, self-adjusting internal cutting system. The distributor heads also include a totally unique internal ventilation system, that the competitors unit just can master on performance.
The unit includes our unique ultra-flow delivery system where the inside of the slurry delivery hoses are completely free from them leave the distributor until the slurry reaches the ends of the hoses close to the ground. The construction is from high tensile S355 steel and is fully galvanised. The unit folds into a compact unit with the tops of the booms inclined so they are not near trees or similar during road transport.
