Dutch effluent specialist Vredo is testing 15 and 18-metre wide slurry injection rigs for the upcoming 2022 spreading season.
The new Merge Maxx 760 and 1090 units are designed with the same versatility that makes the Merge Maxx 950, allowing central or side delivery that can be changed at any time to suit conditions.
The 760 model is equipped with two 2.75m-width pick-ups, so covers up 5.5m in side-delivery mode, while in the central-delivery format, the working width increases to 7.5m. The machine uses twin double-acting hydraulic valves and a control terminal to manage belt reversal and individual lifting and lowering of pick-up units.
The larger Merge Maxx 1090 uses the same main structure as the current 950 model and reaches a working width of 11m in the central delivery position. When both 4.4m pick-ups are positioned for side-delivery, the raking width covers 8.8cm (side windrow not included). As greater volumes of forage are carried on the conveyor belt, the side transit channel of the Merge Maxx 1090 has been enlarged.
The same AT 10 control terminal from the 950 model, with two double acting valves, is used to control this machine.
