The KUHN Axis® .2 Series sets the industry standard in precision broadcast fertilizer spreading. These fertilizer spreaders come with a variety of options to meet the needs of a wide range of producers, from small mixed farms to large-row crop or commercial operations. The Axis 40.2 and 50.2 fertilizer spreader models offer the most precise rate control in the industry, thanks to exclusive EMC technology. Triangular spread patterns create wide working widths and precise material placement, even in breezier conditions. Vari-Spread Pro, Opti-Point and border control combine to significantly reduce over-application to save input costs. ISOBUS software is simple to set up and the machine can be run with any terminal that meets the appropriate industry standards. All this adds up to an outstanding return on investment for you, the producer.

Your benefits

CDA: Unrivaled Accuracy

Axis_CDA_01.jpg

Coaxial Distribution Adjustment System (CDA)

Different fertilizers, variable application rates, multiple working widths – your fertilizer spreader must quickly adapt to different needs. The CDA system, part of every KUHN Axis fertilizer spreader, helps meet these challenges while providing ultra-easy adjustments. There are two important features that make the CDA system unique:

1. The pivoting hopper base enables quick adaptation to various fertilizers and working widths by adjusting the drop point of the fertilizer onto the spreading discs.

2. Specially designed metering outlets, close to the center of the discs, allow multiple supply points to the paddles. This helps ensure constant fertilizer flow and an even spread pattern.

 

You can modify the working width in a few seconds by simply changing the drop point of the fertilizer onto the disc. This is done without any tools by pivoting the base – manually on the Axis 30.2, and from the cab on Axis 40.2 H-EMC models and all 50.2 models. No paddles have to be adjusted and no manual contact with the fertilizer is required.

Extra-Slow Agitator

The agitator regulates the supply, promotes fertilizer flow and helps keep the fertilizer intact. This is because the agitators stop immediately when the metering outlets are closed, protecting the granules from unnecessary agitation. Rotating at only 17 RPM, they handle the granules gently to significantly reduce damage and prevent powder formation.

More Accuracy with Drop Guide

To ensure an accurate drop point of the fertilizer on the disc, a brush drop guide follows the fertilizer flow until it is caught by the paddles.

Reduced Turbulence

Airfin deflectors reduce turbulence generated by the rotating discs to ensure even fertilizer flow.

Consistent, Uniform Spreading

Electronic Mass Flow Control (EMC) System

Electronic Mass Flow Control (EMC) is a unique technology, well-established and proven after years of experience. The EMC system includes hydraulically driven spinner discs, which use proven electromagnetic torque sensors to determine the rate of material falling to each disc separately. This measurement, allows the system to compare the measured rate to the rate set by the operator. If the rate does not match, it automatically compensates by opening or closing the metering gates independently for each side. Axis EMC machines only.

Integrated Weighing System

The ISOBUS terminal, linked to two high-capacity weigh cells, records the application rate continually during spreading. It recognizes uneven flow rates, which occur due to speed variations, fertilizer differences or changing climatic conditions and corrects them automatically more than one time per second. No calibration test is needed and you achieve higher fertilizer savings per acre!

Hydraulic Disc Drive

The discs, driven by the tractor’s hydraulic system, are independent of the engine. As a result, their spread pattern remains constant and can be adjusted when driving to field points. Spreading with reduced engine speed is possible, which decreases overall fuel consumption. Axis H-EMC machines only.

Innovative Features to Meet Your Needs

Axis_VariSpread_01.jpg

Vari-Spread Pro

Vari-Spread Pro (Section Control) maintains the proper working width by changing the drop point (on H-EMC models) and the spreading disc speed (on all H-EMC models).

Metering outlets are opened and closed with GPS control. Even in field points Vari-Spread can shut off sections on the left and right sides at the ideal moment. The result is maximum comfort and the highest precision possible.

Opti-Point

On headlands, most farmers typically start spreading at the same point, even though each fertilizer is different. Opti-Point now automatically determines the ideal point to open and close the metering outlets, according to settings made with the GPS system.

Vari-Spread and Opti-Point require the use of a GPS virtual terminal, in conjunction with the KUHN-supplied Quantron or as a standalone on ISOBUS machines.

Border Spreading

On H-EMC Axis models, border spreading can be engaged on either the left- or right-hand side, via the control terminal. 

The Axis 30.2, utilizes Telimat limiters to physically direct the granules, keeping them out of waterways and adjacent areas. The limiters can be adjusted to match your specific needs and can also be raised out of the way when not in use.

Customer Spotlight: Axis® .2 Series

  • Nolan Robertson
    Nola Roberston Fairview, Alberta

    “We’re looking at doing some in-season fertilizer top dressing. We can use it (KUHN Axis® 50.2 H-EMC-W) for many different aspects of the farm. If we ever run into a situation where our seeding gets really wet we can spread canola if we need to. It gives us a full range of operation and is one more piece to the farming puzzle.”
