Valmar Airflo 5500 Pull-Type Fertilizer Spreader
Stainless Steel Booms
Designed for commercial rental operations, Valmar’s 5500 Pull-Type self levelling booms feature extra strong all stainless steel construction with break-away boom tips for added protection. The standard unit comes with a 40 ft. boom, while the Row Crop uses a 36 ft. boom. An optional kit is available to extend the Row Crop boom to 38 ft. The booms fold manually.
1000 RPM P.T.O. Fan Drive
The 5500 PT fan is driven by a 1000 RPM power take off system. The constant velocity drive shaft is 13⁄8 in. diameter 21 spline and is equipped with an over-running clutch to prevent damage from sudden disengagement of the tractor PTO system. An optional 13⁄4 in. 20 spline shaft is available.
Ground Driven Metering System
A hydraulically engaged metering system provides consistent application rates regardless of ground speed. Either side can be manually disengaged for 1⁄2 width application.
Extremely Accurate Metering Gearbox
The mechanical gearbox uses 60 different gear ratios for metering rates at 5% increments. Rates as low as 4 lb./acre for herbicide application and as high as 400 lbs. of fertilizer/acre at 5 MPH. A bulk density scale is supplied to help match your fertilizer blend to the application rate charts.
