Fan Jet Mini

The Fan Jet Mini is designed for ‘restricted width’ spreading (slug pellets, other small seeds).

The Mini has a smaller diameter spinning disc than the Fan Jet Pro Plus, limiting the spread width to 12m. The Fan Jet Mini shares most of the features of the Fan Jet Pro Plus.

There is no spread bias adjustment on the Fan Jet Mini.

FAN JET MINI CONTROLS

   

VARI-SPEED CONTROL

Vari-Speed control is standard on the Fan Jet Mini, the disc speed can be 'dialled up' or down to adjust the spreading width, for example to match the implement width, or use to broadcast small seeds with minimum damage (rape, turnips, etc).

Application rates are set by a combination of feed roller type and speed of spinning disc, both can be changed on the move from the tractor seat using a simple dial control.

Fan Jet Mini Vari-Speed Control Box
  • Left hand switch - main power and disc on/off
  • Left hand dial - disc motor speed control
  • Right hand switch - feed motor on/off
  • Right hand dial - disc motor speed control

A simple and effective manually operated electric control is used to instantly start and stop the feed motor e.g. at headlands.

i-CON CONTROL

GPS based touch screen. Rates are automatically controlled in proportion to forward speed for ultimate accuracy, and the machine can apply variable rates according to mapping data. 

Fan Jet Mini i-CON Control Box
  • Seed application rate kg/ha or seeds/m²
  • Forward speed km/hr
  • Minimum/maximum forward speed indicator with alarms
  • Metering unit status (on/off) and alarm
  • Fan status (on/off) and alarm
  • Hopper contents kg and low level alarm
  • Part and full job totals for area (ha), product dispensed (kg) and hours worked
  • Grand total for area (ha) product dispensed (kg) and hours worked
SPREAD WIDTH

Quoted spread widths are only a guide. The density of spread product diminishes towards the extremity and so an overlap is recommended.
The maximum spread width is determined by:

Fan Jet Mini spread width

The maximum spread width is determined by:

  • Product type & integrity
  • Product density
  • Application rate
  • Forward speed
  • Wind speed and direction
  • Disc height from crop canopy
FLUTED FEED ROLLERS

The fluted feed rollers supplied are suitable for most products from ultra-low rates through to high rates of application. The rollers agitate the product to ensure a consistent flow.

The feed rollers meter product through two feed apertures, onto the spinning disc which provides a more even spread pattern left and right than just a single feed aperture.

Alternative feed rollers are available for specialist pellets and seeds.

 


 

OPTIONAL CALIBRATION HOPPER

The steel hopper is easily attached to collect the product being spread into a user provided bag for weighing during calibration checks. The calibration aid is supplied as standard with all i-CON models.

WATERPROOF COVERS

Fan Jet’s can be supplied with optional waterproof covers for use when out of work.
