MONOSEM will exhibit, on their stand at the SIMA show (Hall 6 - Stand F027), a pull-type fertilizer Cart for its planters. This 3500-litre hopper gives a solution to fertilize with a planter up to 12 rows in maize configuration.
Compatible with planters up to 16 metering units
The CT 3500 is mounted on a pull-type frame equipped with a standard hitch on the front side (K80 ball hitch available on option), and a 3-point rear hitch cat. 3/3N on the back side. The 4T lift capacity allows coupling planters up to 12 rows at 75 or 80 cm inter-row spacings or 16 rows at 37,5 cm inter-row spacing.
As standard, the cart is equipped with 710/50 R 22,5 low pressure tyres enabling a 3m transport width (if the planter also has a 3m transport width). 270/95 R 32 twin-wheels are also available on option for those who prefer to avoid riding on the future seeding line. In this case, the transport width is also of 3m with inter-rows of 70 or 75 cm. For other inter-row spacings, the transport width is always less than 3,50m.
Approved to ride on the road with loaded hopper in France, the CT 3500 has an hydraulic or pneumatic braking system.
Evolutive fertilizer hopper
This type of fertilizers gives an important autonomy without requiring a highly ballasted or high power tractor. Moreover, to adapt to the planter’s weight and have a minimum weight impact on the tractor hitch, the CT 3500 has on its boom a 1,6T weight composed of two 500kg quickly removable weights. This allows to reduce the weight on the fertilizer hitch depending on the planter used or when it is coupled to a cultivator.
With the objective of coupling a wide variety of tools to the fertilizer, this cart has, at the rear hitch, hydraulic and lighting sockets and a PTO shaft to mechanically drive the fertilizers’ and planters’ turbofans.
The CT 3500 has a double stainless steel distribution unit. Identical to the distribution units used on MONOSEM front fertilizers, it has 2 electric drives. Their rotation is managed by the ISOBUS ECU F800E offering the metering anticipation function and the AEF certification of the UT, TC-BAS and TC-SC functions. A radar, fixed on the cart enables the automatic regulation.
A turbofan enables the fertilizer conveyance to the units with discs through 2 distribution columns placed on the planter. With a capacity of 3500 litres, the fertilizer has a lateral access platform and is equipped with a sieve, a hopper cover, agitators and hopper sensors.
With this high capacity pull-type cart, MONOSEM offers a solution for localized dry fertilizing for farmers and contractors using planters up to 12 rows in maize configuration.
