BackPac: Flexible solution for umbilical systems
Dribble bar or trailing shoe? Your choice.
The BackPac is specially designed for liquid manure spreading by means of umbilical systems with working width between 21 to 30 meters. Thanks to flexible working widths and the new headland management at the touch of a button, liquid manure is delivered exactly where it belongs. Depending on the setting, the respective part-width valves are automatically retracted, hose groups are closed and the optional lifting device is raised to enable clean turning without excessive liquid manure flow. The driver can also return to the original settings at the touch of a button. The BackPac has unique technical features that also protect the umbilical system from damage during turning maneuvers.
Additional options such as Comfort Flow Control (CFC) and digitally retrievable flow rate and pressure measurement ensure maximum efficiency and control. The dribble bar and trailing shoe system also offers more possibilities for counteracting oscillation movement. The precision distributor is now almost centrally mounted, making driving over the field much smoother. Placement of the liquid manure in the growing crop is also made even more precise by the accuracy of the precision distributors and the well thought-out hose layout; optimum use of nutrients is thus guaranteed at all times. For transport, the BackPac system folds together directly behind the tractor. With a transport width of 2.55 m, the driver's view remains completely unrestricted. Whether as a dribble bar system or as a trailing shoe, the BackPac from Vogelsang, which has been completely redesigned for 2019, will appeal to customers with its lightness on the ground, high stability and extraordinary flexibility. It is a highly efficient solution, especially for farms with rolling hills that usually apply liquid manure to the field with an umbilical system!
