New technology from Highway Equipment Company offers precise spreading
Highway Equipment Company (HECO), the manufacturer of Hi-Way road maintenance equipment and New Leader crop nutrient applicators, has announced the next generation of G4 with the release of the NL4500 G4 Edge. The G4 Edge will be introduced and demonstrated at the Illinois Fertilizer and Chemical Association’s MAGIE tradeshow in Bloomington, IL on August 26th and 27th.
The Edge features precise boundary spreading which allows operators to apply materials along a boundary line, resulting in less material in sensitive areas with the flip of a switch. Featuring increased gate openings, the Edge with MultApplier insert can reach higher rates, application speeds and widths. The MultiBin is also available for spreading up to four products in one pass.
The Edge is equipped with an ISOBUS system for easy “plug and play” for standardized plugs, cables and software for use with any compatible controller. Also with precision manufacturing using laser cutting technology and slot and tab design, the Edge features self-centering components such as the spinner frame, material divider and hillside divider.
An upgraded hydraulics system has been developed to support independent spinner speed control for boundary spreading, fast and exact conveyor control, and an automatic chain tensioner. Additionally, the Edge comes standard with automatic lubrication alerts.
