The Fan Jet range of applicators are cost effective and multi-purpose. Product is either gravity fed or metered onto a spinning disc for broadcast application. The spinning disc is driven by a 12v electric motor as standard. A choice of hopper size, spread width and mounting options are also available across all models.
Primarily used for slug pellet application, the Fan Jet is also an effective broadcaster of grass seed, other small seeds, granular products, game feed and even fish food!
All Fan Jet applicators share their manual headland control functionality which can change the bias, to limit flow and spread of the product.
This is particularly important with chemical products, including slug pellets, to ensure product does not contaminate water courses or margins.
The table below compares all the applicators in the Fan Jet range.
N.B. Fan Jet maximum spread widths require full size slug pellets, correct disc height, correct power source and calm conditions.
Hopper capacity for slug pellets: 65 litre = 50kg, 130 litre = 100kg.

Specifically designed and built by Stocks AG to compliment the Fan Jet range of machines. Utilising the full width of the Utility Vehicle to achieve optimum spread pattern and width. Comes complete with a junction box mounting plate, forklift brackets and fully assembled. Supplied as a “Single Carrier” chassis for the use of a Fan Jet Pro or Plus. For the Twin and Duo machines, an “Additional Carrier” is required. When ordered in conjunction with any Fan Jet, is fully assembled and ready to go to work.
Most commonly mounted to the chassis of self-propelled
sprayers, An optional front mounting beam positions the
pair of Fan Jets 1.9m apart centre to centre.
Stocks recommend that the applicators are lowered for
safe filling and emptying as well as the calibration of each
applicator and then raised to a working height of 2m.
BUILT IN THE UK
Wisbech is still the home of Stocks Ag. All applicators are fabricated, assembled and painted in the Cambridgeshire factory. Precision assembly and quality control are paramount to the production process.
The R & D team work with both the factory and farmers to deliver a seeding solution that is fit for current farming practices.
