P45 Poly Cam Gauge One Outlet Applicator

P45 Herbicide/Pesticide One Outlet Row Applicator
Product ID: P451-R

45-lb. capacity natural color (see-through) row crop applicator with matching lid allows operator to visually gauge remaining product in the hopper. To keep the elements out, a weather-tight lid is held securely in place with two latch straps. Package consists of poly hopper with a one outlet bolt-on stainless steel bottom and slide, resilient rubber rotor bar, "U" frame bracket with 1/2" pre-drilled holes and slots for surface mounting.  Precision cam gauge regulates openings in the bottom to apply the recommended rate. With the cam gauge set to the desired position, granular chemicals and small seeds flow through the precisely regulated openings at a constant rate. Material is continually supplied to the opening by an internal rotor bar powered by an optional 12-volt electric drive, hydraulic drive or ground drive. EM package with tubing, stabilizers and clamp straps are optional. Some assembly required.

45-Lb., Poly Hopper with Cam Gauge for Insecticides and Herbicides

Features

  • 45-lb. capacity poly hopper (translucent) with UV and anti-static protection
  • Translucent weather-tight cover with latch straps
  • U-frame bracket with 1/2" pre-drilled holes and slots for surface mounting  
  • Bolt-on stainless steel bottom and slide are mated and precision tooled- removes easily for cleaning
  • Precision cam-gauge sets rate - uses top of the stop as gauge point and adjusts openings in applicator's bottom. When tightened, gauge maintains position
  • Rugged, five bladed 8" rubber rotor bar supplies material to openings and restricts material flow when rotor drive stops
  • Porous, oil-impregnated bearings
  • Weather-guard seals and bearing retainers

  
Options
Choice of drives - 12-volt, hydraulic or ground drive (non-speed compensated); Band product with 5", 7", 10" or 14" Ro-Banders; To connect hoppers when mounted in-line there are two connector drive packages; Hopper extension for an additional 30 lbs., of capacity; Adjustable (14"-24") tool bar mount

Can I leave product overnight in the hopper?

Gandy recommends that you always remove any leftover product from the hopper and clean the hopper after each use. However, if product is left overnight in the applicator, disconnect the drive by pulling the hairpin cotters and turn each rotor by hand one or two revolutions. Using only a hairpin cotter as a lever, you should have to exert only moderate to light effort to turn the rotor. If more force is required to turn the rotor, empty the contents of the hopper and clean before using.

Do I need to calibrate my applicator or just follow the settings in the rate chart?

Gandy recommends that you always perform a calibration check. Variables such as the age of the chemical, formulation, humidity and temperature affect flow characteristics.

Does ground speed affect rates?

Yes. Even though the opening size does not change, speed is an important factor. For example, if your applicator is calibrated at 6 mph, but you are driving at 3 mph, you are applying twice the desired rate.

Does the rotor speed determine the amount of product dispensed from the applicator?

No. Gandy applicators depend upon gravity flow of particles through carefully adjusted openings. Within limits, rotor speed does not affect application rates. Rotor speeds between 10 and 20 rpm are acceptable. The sprocket ratio provided achieves this.
If you are applying a very high rate of material requiring a gauge setting of 60 to 80, some minor pulsations in the flow of granules may occur if the rotor is not running fast enough. If the rotor turns easily and you are driving only 1 or 2 hoppers per motor, you can replace the standard 32T driven sprocket with a 24T sprocket and increase the rotor speed.

How do I set the cam-gauge?

Move the slide away from the stop. Turn the cam to the proper setting using the top of the stop as the gauge point. Secure the wing nut on the cam gauge and slide the bottom and cam against the stop. Be sure to double-check that the cam-gauge is securely fixed at your specified setting.

If I change the band width, does it affect my rates?

A change in band width changes the application rate. For example, if you set the gauge for a 14-inch band, but applied in a 10-inch band, you would be applying a heavier rate on the treated area. Likewise, an applicator dispensing material from two openings set for one-opening will give you a heavier rate over the treated area.

What are the power requirements for the standard (no. 09099928) 12-volt (1/64 hp) electric motor when used with a poly applicator?

Under normal load with two hoppers, each motor will draw between 3 and 4 amps. Under adverse conditions the load will increase up to 5 amps, indicating the rotor is not turning freely and the bearings may need to be cleaned. Changing from a steel rotor to a neoprene rotor may be necessary. In addition, road travel with filled hoppers can cause compaction making it difficult for the motor to start. Gandy recommends always filling the hoppers before use in the field. Please note: under normal load the motor will run hot.

What are the power requirements for the (no. 09099929) 12-volt (1/32 hp) electric motor when used with a poly applicator?

Under normal load with three hoppers, each motor will draw between 5 and 6 amps. Under adverse conditions the load will increase up to 7 amps, indicating the rotor is not turning freely and the bearings may need to be cleaned. Changing from a steel rotor to a neoprene rotor may be necessary. In addition, road travel with filled hoppers can cause compaction making it difficult for the motor to start. Gandy recommends always filling the hoppers before use in the field. Please note: under normal load the motor will run hot.

What seeds are typically used?

Flax, yellow mustard and similar seeds.
