Whether you’re seeding or applying herbicide, a Salford Valmar 245 Pull-Type Granular Applicator is designed to deliver unparalleled accuracy under a wide variety of ground conditions. Its rugged construction is sturdy enough to withstand the rigors of commercial use, making it the right choice for a rental fleet, custom applicator, or a farm operation. Moreover, the 245 incorporates a number of innovative features designed to make material application easier, safer and more precise than ever before.

The 245 applicator achieves its accuracy, thanks to a ground-driven metering system that ensures the precise application rate regardless of ground speed. As with most Valmar units, the 245 uses our 60-speed gearbox that allows the application rates in increments of five percent. Drive ratio changes are made at the gearbox, eliminating the need to move chains and realign sprockets.

The 245’s wide 50-ft. boom and large 40-cu.-ft. hopper (capable of holding up to 1,800 lb. of product at a density of 45 lb./cu. ft.) enables operators to cover more acres between fills. Equally important, the self-levelling boom ensures a uniform spread pattern, regardless of field conditions. For safety, the boom also features 8-ft. breakaway tips to help minimize damage that may occur from striking an obstacle in the field.

Calibrating an applicator is necessary to ensure proper flow rates, especially when determining the setting for new products, seeds or seed mixtures. The 245 applicator makes this process easier by allowing the venturi and manifold system to be dropped so that a funnel tray can be inserted for easy collection of product. Operators can use the crank handle (provided) to simulate ground travel and establish precise calibration for any product. The funnel also makes emptying the hopper an easy and safe procedure.
