A brace of new in-cab screen options along with a mobile app allowing the operator to monitor the weight of the spreader contents from the loader will be shown on our stand at Lamma 2022.
The Topcon XD and XD+ Isobus screens, in both 7in and 12.1in displays, as options on all its weigh-cell equipped spreaders. This allows users running non-Isobus compatible tractors to achieve increased functionality with the screens, including basic guidance and task management.
Alongside this, operators using an Isobus weigh cell system have the option for the loader driver to view the real-time weight of the spreader contents via the Topcon ‘Cab Control’ app, on a smartphone or tablet.
The upshot here is there is no need to stop loading to check the weight of the material in the spreader, as the read-out is mirrored from the tractor cab. Using the device should virtually eliminate any overloading and it can also be used for weighing varying product quantities.
The stand will also feature a redesigned Lowlander 120 HY TVA (Twin Vertical Augers), with a new curved bottom spreader deck to limit material build-up behind the augers and ensure all the material is forced onto the large diameter bottom blades.
Further tweaks include a restyled auger base with replaceable Boron blades. The blades are now mounted in a lower position to improve distribution and limit excess wear on the auger base.
Along with the Lowlander 120 HY TVA, there will be two other muck spreaders on the at the show: a Lowlander 150 HY HBD on Alliance VF 710/70 R42 tyres, and a 105 Compact TVA.
