The new KUHN Advance .1 Series precision fertilizer spreaders offer a dynamic combination of precise application, high capacity, and commercial-grade durability in a trailed fertilizer spreader. With multiple tire options, adjustable axle, and AEF-certified ISOBUS compatibility, these fertilizer spreaders are designed to adapt to nearly any operation. The Advance offers capacities of 300 or 350 cubic feet with a working width up to 164 feet.
The Advance .1 Series utilizes the proven KUHN technology of the Axis® PowerPack, with industry-leading features such as EMC rate control, Vari-Spread section control, Opti-Point headland control, and dual-mode border control. These technologies provide high precision spreading of fertilizer and seeds, offering fertilizer cost savings and environmental benefits. For higher-volume applications, the machine can quickly be fitted with the optional Universal PowerPack.
The main hopper is constructed from 304 stainless steel for outstanding corrosion resistance. Wires and hoses are routed through the sealed horizonal side channels to prevent water and fertilizer infiltration and a clean design. The belt-over-chain conveyor runs “uphill” to keep the majority of the load toward the front of the machine.
The Advance machines are AEF-certified ISOBUS compatible, allowing the machine to “plug-and-play” into existing monitors and precision farming systems. The CCI 800 and CCI 1200 monitors are optional for those who do not already have an ISOBUS display.
