The Hi-Spec Trail-S Trailing Shoes can be easily used with a tanker-mounted system. Each trailing shoe deposits a predetermined volume of slurry/manure directly onto the soil surface. This method maximises nitrogen availability for plants and minimises slurry/manure smell. In addition, this allows the slurry/manure to be applied more precisely to plant fields without contaminating the leaves.
The Hi-Spec Trail-S features many unique features. For example, trailing shoes can be folded down to reduce their overall height. In addition, HiSpec’s trailing shoes can be used to dribble on the ground without contact. You can also use the splash plate or the fill point behind your shoe without making any modifications.
The Trail-S features individually sprung legs with toughened coulters to gently part the grass and open the soil. The downward pressure applied to the legs ensures the Coulter is in constant contact with the ground. This contact is essential to create the optimum channel for nutrient uptake. The trailing rubber boot deposits the slurry directly into the open channel to reduce contamination. Once spreading is complete, the parted grass comes together again, minimising evaporation and saving on fertiliser.
The Hi-Spec trail-S features several unique features. The trailing shoes fold down to reduce overall height. The HiSpec trailing shoe can also be used as a dribble bar without any contact with the ground if required. There is also the ability to use the fill point behind the shoe or the splash plate without any alterations. The nine and 10.5-metre Trail-S will also feature a unique hydraulic self-levelling, whereby each arm of the trailing shoe will lift as it passes over a side incline. This ensures that the shoe works perfectly over its entire width and that pressure on the springs is evenly distributed.
The HiSpec Trail-S fold away nicely. All shoes feature unique folding to reduce overall height. This reduced height means safer road travel and more unrestrained movement on farms. In addition, the Trail-S can be reversed under lower roofs than competitors’ models.
Side Incline Suspension
The 9.0 and 10.5-metre Trail-S features a unique side incline suspension. As a result, as the outer arms pass over an incline, a lot of pressure is placed on the outer legs. This excess pressure is now diverted to an accumulator allowing the arm to lift for protection and ensure even distribution across the entire shoe.
Integrated Stone trap
The Trail-S is fitted with an integrated stone trap. Slurry exits the tanker from the side of the utility hole, passing directly into the ExaCut. Stones and heavy debris are collected in both the ExaCut sock and also in the rear integrated stone trap as they are pushed out towards the splash plate for easy removal.
A splash plate is also included with all Trail-S. The splash plate is fixed at standard operating height and fed directly from the utility hole. There are no longer 6” feed hoses to reconnect; you simply select the separate spool at the tractor to the splash plate.
