Metering System

An easy to use mechanical metering system allows for consistent accurate metering of all seed types.

Metering Roller
(Limited Lifetime Warranty) Versatile Air Carts feature polyurethane, fluted metering rollers. Not only is changing rollers unnecessary when switching from one product to another, but this design also ensures a constant flow of product.

Range Sprockets
Each metering roller is equipped with a range sprocket cluster that eliminates the need to change metering rollers when switching from one product to another. This adjustment is completed in a few seconds and no tools are required. The metering drive is shear bolt protected.

Main Drive Transmission
Metering transmissions are powered off the left rear wheel, therefore application rates remain constant even when increasing or decreasing ground speed. The air cart’s implement width can be set by installing two applicable sprockets on this transmission.

3-Step Rate Test
Rate tests can be time consuming, but not with Versatile Air Carts. The air cart monitor calculates and displays each application rate setting: therefore no charts, decals or calculators are required.
Step 1: Input desired application rate into monitor.
Step 2: Crank out product sample into rate pan, weigh product and input weight into monitor.
Step 3: Install displayed Quick-Change sprocket combination (Mechanical Systems). Zero-Max transmission (Variable Rate Systems) will position itself.

Metering Housing
Each metering housing has a built-in stone trap to collect foreign material such as small pebbles and fertilizer lumps etc. that have passed through the tank screen. This feature eliminates possible jamming of the metering system or premature roller wear.
