Innovative Wapniak from Cynkomet

Like a Wapniak, and follows global trends. Cynkomet has praised its new trailed spreader, which has been galvanized and fitted with a fertilizer scale, box monitoring system and working area gauge.

“You limp! – from today will not be a pejorative expression. All thanks to Cynkomet and their new machine. Wapniak, i.e. trailed spreader RWN – 8000, is a device designed for spreading dusty and granular fertilizers – mainly lime. According to the company from Czarna Białostocka, the machine achieves a range of up to 10 m.

– The introduction of a new agricultural machine is the result of many discussions with our customers. As a result, a modern lime spreader was created, which already enjoys great popularity – says Cynkomet President Mariusz Dąbrowski.

The 8-ton capacity machine is built on a frame with 160x80x5 mm side members and a single-axle ADR frame with parabolic springs. The wheels have a track width of 1.9 m, the total width of the spreader is 2.53 m and its own weight is approx. 4 t (depending on equipment).

The 3 mm thick plates of the loading box are one meter high and the floor is made of 5 mm thick steel. A twin-chain conveyor was mounted on it, with densely spaced slats welded to all vertically positioned links. The assembly allows a more efficient movement of the material collected in the box towards the spreading discs.

The floor conveyor is driven by a wheel mounted above the machine’s right wheel and a hydraulic cylinder pressed against it. Simple and efficient.

– Consequently, the set rate does not change with the change in speed during spreading. On the way, the fertilizer is crushed by the active AktivGruda system, then it reaches two spreading discs through a hydraulically operated shutter, said machine builder Krzysztof Kołodko.

Dispersion up to 10 meters

The spreading width depends on the degree of fragmentation of the material and its volatile properties. According to the manufacturer’s information, the maximum working width is 10 m – this is also the width of the optional dust covers, which can be folded down during transport.

The covers mainly work with the use of powdered fertilizers, protecting them from the wind and reducing their losses. For similar reasons, a tonneau cover (available as an option) was fitted.

Weighing and monitoring system

The novelty from Z incomet as standard has a weighing system based on strain gauges. To read the weight, you need an additional display of the weighing system, which is installed in the tractor cabin.

The list of standard equipment also includes two cameras that allow you to view the inside of the loading box and the spreading discs, as well as a pulse counter to measure the working area and the distance travelled. This information can also be displayed on the screen.

The spreader has its own hydraulic system including a pump, filter and oil tank. The machine also has a 2-line braking system with automatic braking force.

– An interesting option of the spreading equipment are two agitators for mineral fertilizers, mounted in the loading box, useful in the case of the simultaneous application of different types of fertilizers (for example, potassium salt and superphosphate) – added Krzysztof Kołodko.

fully galvanized

Practically the entire structure of the machine is hot-dip galvanized, which perfectly protects the device against the effects of fertilizers, which are harmful to steel. According to the manufacturer, this method of protection works much better than standard paint coating.
