The SwingUp dribble bar linkage—low weight, high performance

In order to use liquid manure optimally, precise spreading into the root zone is essential. The Vogelsang SwingUp dribble bar linkage meets those requirements, with extremely high distribution accuracy as well. This precision in operation is the result of reliable precision distributors, the carefully designed hose layout, and the rigid end hoses. And accuracy is very important in ensuring uniform nutrient utilization when spreading liquid manure. The fertilizer is supplied in an optimum way to the crops, which reach maturation at the same time due to the high uniformity of application, and high yields are assured. As the liquid manure is deposited directly into the existing plants, it can be spread regardless of the weather conditions. The SwingUp dribble bar linkage has other impressive features besides its basic operation, however. Weighing just 1000 kg and with a working width of 12 meters, the SwingUp dribble bar linkage is re-markably light needing little traction force to move it. It is also very easy to install and can be retrofitted on existing tankers as well. The SwingUp dribble bar linkage therefore represents a perfect solution for compliance with the new fertilizer regulations in Germany. With a relatively minimal investment, you can easily upgrade your tanker and keep using it for many more years in full compliance with the law. In summary, the Vogelsang SwingUp dribble bar linkage is lightweight in construction yet powerful in performance at the same time.

The Vogelsang SwingUp dribble bar system impresses with its compact dimensions and high-quality technology. Versatile and flexible in use, this linkage is the all-purpose choice for liquid manure spreading. At the same time, it is very stable and satisfies Vogelsang's fundamental requirement for every single system: extremely high distribution accuracy. In this model, this is accomplished by the DosiMat or ExaCut precision distributor. With up to 18 meters, the SwingUp dribble bar system provides the best solution for relatively narrow tramlines and working widths.


When driving on the road, the hoses of the dribble bar system are rotated upward 180° so that they are vertical. This reliably prevents leakage and keeps the road clean and safe.
Liquid manure, a valuable commodity, must be spread evenly and reliably in the distribution hoses. Vogelsang precision distributors permit precise distribution of the nutrients with a distribution coefficient of less than 5 percent. This makes spreading a safe and reliable process without fluctuations – which also guarantees even plant growth.

The linkages are fixed onto the tanker.
The discharge hoses on the Vogelsang dribble bar systems all have similar lengths, thanks to the optimized hose layout. The liquid manure reaches the soil almost simultaneously from each one, and spreading across the entire working width and length is also guaranteed. This not only ensures optimum lateral distribution accuracy in the linkage, but also prevents the V shape that can otherwise form.
The hose is a key factor in spreading technology. As such, the hose material and composition of the plastic have been developed specially for Vogelsang over several decades. The combination of raw materials that we use for our special hose is characterized by high robustness, elasticity, and UV resistance. This makes the hoses resistant to the effects of chemicals and environmental influences. The unique manufacturing technique we use for our rigid end hoses brings additional benefits. The hose sections used as end hoses are always straight and absolutely dimensionally stable. Your advantage: there is no need for guide elements, which are heavy and prone to wear, and the hoses always remain open and do not stick. Furthermore, this rigid end hose configuration ensures defined strip spacing.


The unit is designed to be mounted on a 4-point hydraulic system.
Maximum hose diameter for maximum spreading performance from precision distributor to hose end, with a uniform DN 50 hose nominal diameter.
Comfort Flow Control (CFC) is the universal solution when it comes to shutting off hoses in any system: part-width section cut-offs, tramline switching or DropStop systems. The CFC is installed in the hose outlets of the spreader device, downstream of the distributor. Each hose or group of hoses can be shut off from the cab. The CFC is versatile and can be used in any unit – dribble bar systems, trailing shoe systems or tillage units.

On request, end hoses can be delivered in DN 50 to ensure that the whole process runs even more smoothly.
The separate DropStop can be used to prevent dripping or increase distance from the ground during spreading. This is done by folding the hose tips up 180° without moving the entire linkage into the transport position.
When this option is selected, the flow of liquid manure and oil to one of the two precision distributors is sealed off. This allows you to adjust to a half-tramline over larger working widths and smooth out wedges in the field. It also prevents overlapping.
The rear TeleShift allows you to shorten the transport dimensions of your unit, leaving almost no linkage protrusion at the rear. This compactness makes maneuvering much easier.
The front TeleShift allows you to combine larger linkages with compact tanks. It can also be used to set up various working widths without protrusion.
