Studies have found economic and environmental benefits from using variable-rate and section control application technology. With that in mind, Salford has intensified its focus on precision application technology. This week, the company expanded its self-steering commodity cart lineup with the introduction of the PathFinder ST-10.
The ST-10 features a 120-cu.-ft. and a 180-cu.-ft. tank for a combined capacity of 10 tons. The meter can control four sections on the machine for more accurate application. For quick pairing with other implements, the new section control equipment is ISOBUS-compatible.
Like the ST-6 and ST-8, the ST-10 uses Salford’s Valmar metering technology, which works with seed or fertilizer. The meters primarily consist of poly material that resists buildup from fertilizer residue and are equipped with cleaning systems.
