P45 Multi-Purpose Applicator for Fertilizer, Granular Chemical and Seeds/Grains

Owatonna, MN, April 3, 2017:  Gandy Company is pleased to offer the P45 Multi-Purpose 3-in-1 applicator for applying fertilizer, granular chemical, seeds and grain.

According to Randy Vargason, sales and marketing manager for Gandy Company, the 45 lb. capacity translucent poly hopper and matching lid allow the operator to easily gauge how much material is in the hopper and features a complete set of black metering wheels for granular chemical and small seeds, red metering wheels for fertilizer and small grains, plus, yellow high-output metering wheels for fertilizer.  In addition a weather-tight lid with rubber latch straps keeps the elements out and the product secure.

“Customers can easily configure the applicator from one to four outlets by simply sliding out the shaft and removing or installing metering wheels and cups. If not all outlets are used, blanking plates are provided to seal outlet openings. For surface mounting, each unit comes with a U-frame bracket with pre-drilled ½" holes and slots.  An adjustable (14"-24") tool bar mount for a 5" diamond or 7" square tool bar is also available as an option.”

“Equipped with a stainless steel metering housing, a standard bolt-in agitator is included to assist in product flow. The positive displacement design means that when the metering stops, all flow stops. If the unit is ground-driven, the metering compensates for the ground speed. Other drive options include a standard 4-amp, 1/64 HP, 12-volt electric motor to drive up to two hoppers. If there are more than two hoppers mounted in-line, a heavy-duty, 25-amp, ¼ HP, 12-volt electric drive is available. Finally, a hydraulic drive option is available too. To achieve application rates, a rate control sprocket package is required and there are connector tubes to connect multiple hoppers together when they are mounted in-line. For customers that need to carry more material, a 30-lb. capacity hopper extension is available as an option.”
