Trailing shoe system with the highest precision
- Liquid manure spreading below the crop with up to 12 kg coulter pressure for optimum nutrient utilization
- Unique placement of the liquid manure due to flow-optimized trailing shoe for minimum contamination
- Outstanding distribution accuracy due to perfectly matched components (DLG test report 7030)
- Liquid manure at all outlets within 2 seconds (DLG test report 7030)
- Better penetration into the soil due to new trailing shoe shape for lowest nutrient losses and long service life
Superior nutrient absorption thanks to precise spreading with the BlackBird
How the trailing shoe system BlackBird spreads liquid manure
The nutrients in the liquid manure only have the optimum effect if they are placed where the crops can absorb them best. This is why every single element of Vogelsang’s trailing shoe system BlackBird is designed to offer maximum precision.
The BlackBird gets its name from the nozzle of the trailing shoes, which have a long, beak-like shape that slows down the flow rate of the liquid manure before it leaves the discharge. This unusual geometry is the result of our flow simulations, and allows the liquid manure to be deposited at the base of the plants in a controlled manner that does not cause splashes or contaminate the plants. Its new, pointed shape helps the BlackBird’s skids penetrate the soil better, and also improves service life.
In addition to this, the centrally positioned precision distributor and sophisticated hose layout also help to improve the precision of the trailing shoe. The fact that the hoses are all the same length also plays a significant role in this. At the same time, the sophisticated hose layout prevents the system from creating V-shaped grooves at the start of its furrow. The discharge hoses are black for optimum UV resistance.
Worldwide number one – The BlackBird® and the ExaCut ECQ
Quality leadership in distribution accuracy and maintenance
The precision distributor ExaCut ECQ was put through its paces when Vogelsang faced up to the strict test criteria of the DLG product testers. And it was a success. According to the DLG evaluation scheme, the precision distributor achieved the grade “Very good” in the test modules “Functionality and work quality” and “Handling, operation and maintenance” from the DLG testing framework for liquid manure application technology. The 15 m wide Vogelsang trailing shoe system BlackBird was tested with two ExaCut ECQs.
Customers benefit from excellent values in distribution accuracy and time. Both for liquid manure spreading and maintenance, which is unbeatable with a maximum of 20 minutes compared to conventional precision distributors.
