The efficient trailing shoe system for liquid manure tankers
Why you need the SwingUp Slide

The Vogelsang trailing shoe system SwingUp Slide spreads liquid manure along the soil, under the plants. With a working width of up to 18 meters, the manure is applied to the root zone, for efficient use of nutrients. With the Vogelsang trailing shoe system, high distribution accuracy is once again a top priority. To prevent the "V shape" that can form at the start and to distribute the nutrients in the manure in the best way, the design uses high precision distributors and an optimal hose layout. The trailing shoe deposits the liquid manure under the plants—in other words, exactly where it is needed resulting in improved yields. This Vogelsang liquid manure linkage is perfect for pastureland, as it creates ideal growth conditions. However, the trailing shoe system SwingUp Slide is versatile and can also be used with other plants as well. The shaft material is not just sturdy, but also permanently elastic. This allows the trailing shoe to follow the soil contour at all times. Consequently, uniform spreading of liquid manure is ensured even on uneven terrain.

Features of the SwingUp 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 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 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.

Options of the SwingUp Slide

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.

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 front TeleShift allows you to combine larger linkages with compact tanks. It can also be used to set up various working widths without protrusion.
