Diversifying its nutrient application equipment, John Deere introduces the DN345 Drawn Dry Box Spinner Spreader.
The struck capacity of the DN345 is 345 cu. ft. for the single-bin configuration, and it can carry up to 17.5 tons (struck) of lime and more than 12 tons (struck) of fertilizer. An optional MultApplier stainless-steel bin can be added to the hopper, which increases struck capacity to more than 400 cu. ft. and load-carrying capacity to more than 14 tons. The spread pattern is up to 60' wide when applying lime and up to 90' wide when applying fertilizer.
The applicator features four high-flotation tires, which can be operated at tire pressures of 20 psi. Under full load, the DN345 can operate at speeds up 20 mph in the field. This spreader has a hydraulic brake system that is integrated into John Deere 8030 and 9030 Series tractors with hydraulic brakes. Base price: $112,000.
