Applicators - Fan Jet Mini

The Mini is designed for restricted spreading of slug pellets fromapproximately 2 - 12 metres, typically mounted to the back of a cultivator immediately prior to seed drilling, or to the back of a seed drill or cultivator-seeder whilst seeding, or a set of rolls after seeding.

The standard control is a simple in-cab dial control and provides manual on-the-move rate and disc speed changes or it can be supplied with the RDS colour touch screen GPS based i-CON control for automatic speed proportionate application, and PF variable rate application working from field maps + ISO options of tractor ISOBUS, or RDS ISOCAN or ISO-ARTEMIS control. It can also spread other granular products and seeds, such as herbicide granules in vineyards and fruit orchards, and game feed. Available with 3 hopper capacities, either 65 litres (approx 50 kgs slug pellets) or 130 litres (approx 100 kgs slug pellets) or 240 litres (approx 185kgs slug pellts) and is named ' Fan Jet Mini 65 ', or ' Fan Jet Mini 130 ', or Fan Jet Mini 240 accordingly.

Spread Widths

For all products we recommend a minimum disc height of 1m from the ground or crop canopy, and calm conditions.
Slug Pellets. Variable disc speed and adjustable width deflectors are used to alter the spread width of most pellets from 2 - 10 metres wide to match the implement.
Other products. It can be used as a game feeder, or to apply fertiliser or other chemical or herbicide granules in confined spaces such as glasshouses, orchards, vineyards and between fruit bushes and will spread other granules and seeds at narrow widths. Widths will vary according to product density.

Fitting

All models are for use with seeders or cultivators. Select a suitable and robust mounting position. Note; These machines should remain upright during use and transport.
Base or back mounting.
The 65 and 130 have a tipping bracket that will attach horizontally or vertically for base or back mounting, and has 2 hole positions to adjust the angle of pitch. The 240 does not tip and is only for base mounting.
Note; The full weight of the 240 is 250kgs!
ATV's. Use only the Mini 65 with an ATV, an ATV Fitting Kit is available - see Cost Options.

Electric Controls

Applicator electric controlsStandard control provide variable disc and feed motor speed, with instant start and stop of spreading, and on-the-move manual rate change. Control console, 3.5m fused battery power lead and 6m connector cable are supplied. Extension cables as a cost option. Control options: i-CON (+ ISO options)


Spreading Features

A high quality disc motor drives the stainless steel disc which has 2 small stainless steel vanes for restricted spreading. The control console dial provides variable disc speed to give the required spread width.
Product is metered to the disc via rotating fluted feed rolls powered by a separate
2 speed electric motor coupled to a 12 speed dial on the control console to give a total of 24 feed motor speeds. (standard control only ? options are stepless) The fluted rolls agitate the pellets to ensure a consistent flow.Applicator spreading features
Application rates can be changed on the move from the
tractor seat.
Feed rolls supplied are suitable for most products from ultra-low rate through to high rate applications and provides a very versatile adjustable mechanism.
Alternative feed rolls are available for different products and application rates, and are easily changed. The feed motor is switched on and off for instant and positive start and stop. Application rates are set by the combination of feed roll type and speed of rotation.
The feed rolls meter product through 2 feed apertures for a more even distribution onto the disc and thus a better and more even spread pattern left and right, than with just a single feed aperture.

Width and Headland Control

Variable disc speed control is used as the primary method of spread width setting and is ideal to use as headland control with slug pellets, simply dial down the disc speed as required.
Integral adjustable width deflectors are fitted to each side of the disc. These can be used individually as a headland control to one side only, or together to give fine tuning or overall reduction of the spreading width.

PRICING CHOICE - Model & Cost Options

Fan Jet Mini 65, 130, and 240.
All models are supplied complete with control console and standard cables.

COST OPTIONS

i-CON control system. For automatic, speed related accurate application rates, and PF variable rates working from pre-defined field maps.
ATV Fitting Kit. Suitable for the 65 model only - A universal, all steel, quick fit bracket and attaching mechanism to fit the Fan Jet to the rear luggage carrier. The bracket elevates the Fan Jet above the rear carrier to maximise the disc height, and jacking bolts adjust the angle of pitch of the Fan Jet to compensate for suspension deflection of the ATV under load. Short 2m power and 2.5m connector cables minimise power drop to maximise disc motor speed and spread width. A rear shield bolts to the Fan Jet to protect the operator.
Calibration Chute. To assist when calibrating the machine, the chute quickly and simply attaches to the Fan Jet to safely collect and channel the pellets or seed into a collection bag for weighing.
Extension connector cables are available for all models in 2.5m, 6m, 10m lengths.
