Preview launch of a brand new front fill system at Agritechnica
At Agritechnica 2017 we will be exhibiting a brand new type of machinery to our product range - our new Front Arm Pump (FAP). With a focus on efficiency, safety and design, FAP is setting a new standard for front fill systems.
FAP Front Arm Pump
The FAP is a front-mounted suction arm that is designed to fill the slurry tanker directly from a truck or tanker. The FAP system makes it easy to fill the slurry tanker directly from the transport tanker. Driving in headlands and crop damage are reduced significantly, as you drive directly to the transport tanker. The implement on the back of the slurry tanker can also remain in the working position, thereby increasing efficiency and minimising wear.
The FAP system has been designed with driver comfort and safety in mind. The compact design makes the vehicle highly manoeuvrable. The fill arm is mounted on the right hand side to ensure that the driver has maximum visibility. The integrated lights are well protected and provide optimal lighting. The fully integrated storage compartment provides fast access to tools and other parts.
Integrated mirrors and a camera system are offered as optional accessories. With a net weight of 980 kg, the FAP system is extremely stable. If more weight is required at the front of the tractor, weight plates can be fitted under the base.
The FAP can be disassembled on integrated stabilizer feet without the use of tools.
SlurryMaster 8000 offers perfect control for the FAP
The FAP can be operated very easily via the SlurryMaster 8000. A series of automatic functions protects the system against incorrect use and simplifies the driver's work. The centrifugal pump stops automatically when the tanker is full and the slide valve below the pump closes. A smart timer function can be activated so the arm lowers automatically into the transport position.
We look forward to seeing you at AGRITECHNICA 2017, stand 23 A35!
