The trailing shoe system for the largest working widths
Why you need Vogelsang's SwingMax Slide

To be able to utilize nutrients in the liquid manure optimally, the liquid manure has to be applied close to the soil, with low emissions. The closer the manure comes to the roots of the plants, the more efficiently the nutrients will be used. This is easily done with the Vogelsang trailing shoe system SwingMax Slide. The trailing shoe parts the plants and deposits the manure in a narrow strip directly on the soil. Thanks to its robust and permanently elastic design, this trailing shoe constantly adapts itself to the soil contour. That ensures uniform spreading even on uneven terrain. The trailing shoe system SwingMax Slide is versatile and can be used on all kinds of crops.

And like all Vogelsang liquid manure linkages, it meets Vogelsang's fundamental requirements. High distribution accuracy is ensured by the precision distributors and a carefully designed hose layout. This prevents the "V shape" that can form at the start and distributes the nutrients of the manure in an optimal way. Two ExaCut precision distributors and optimal hose guidance ensure that the manure is distributed precisely to all the discharge points and that it reaches them all at the same time. The weight-optimized design allows us to provide the trailing shoe system SwingMax Slide in working widths up to 30 meters, thus making it possible to use existing tramlines with less impact on the soil. This achieves a unique level of effectiveness in trailing skid technology.

Features of the SwingMax Slide

The unit is designed to be mounted on a 4-point hydraulic system.
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 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 dribble bar linkage adapts to the contour of the soil. This reduces the load on the vehicle coupling and the entire frame structure. It also means that the hose ends are kept close to the soil at all times, and ensures that the liquid manure is deposited precisely across the entire working width.
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 outer TopSwing elements can be folded in 180° and laid on the base linkage, significantly reducing the transport dimensions of your unit. This prevents protrusion at the front of the vehicle and means that linkages with large working widths can also be mounted on compact tankers. Different working widths and part widths can also be implemented section by section in combination with the CFC.

Options of the SwingMax Slide

In order to ensure that the linkage follows the soil contour as closely as possible, the control can be used to adjust its angle.
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.

DoubleFold can be used to manually reduce the working width of your unit. The outer frame elements are folded in using a hinge, and the corresponding discharge hoses can be connected via the CFC.
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 front TeleShift allows you to combine larger linkages with compact tanks. It can also be used to set up various working widths without protrusion.
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.
