Unlike a conventional belt, material cannot slip on the scrapers surface nor due to it’s positive sprocket drive can the chain slip like a rubber belt on it’s drive pulley. This leads to accuracy levels of +/- 1 to 2% after calibration, not only that, but the chain can handle lumpy and poor quality material. The chains action breaks up the material and ensuring an even feed, for the really tough stuff an optional powered crumbler roller can also be fitted. With only four bearings for the entire chain, and the chains ability to deal with foreign object without damage, it offers a long and reliable service lifetime with minimal maintenance. The chain is driven via a heavy duty reduction gear box by the tractors hydraulic system, speed is monitored and controlled by the electronic control unit, and regulated according to a speed sensor on the spreaders wheel.

The Güstrower’s key to high accuracy is the hydraulically driven constant speed twin disc spreading unit.

Flow of material is guided onto the exact part of the discs to ensure even and accurate application by stainless steel adjustable guides, the settings are made from spreading tables provided for each type of material. Spread patterns are calibrated at the independent testing facility in Bygholm, Denmark. Key to maintaining accurate spread patterns in the field, is an exact disc speed. Conventional mechanical transmission systems vary with tractor engine rev’s, a big problem when spreading with a heavy machine on hilly terrain. The Gustrower has a independent hydraulic system, PTO driven, which automatically maintains a exact disc speed even if the input tractors PTO speed increases or decreases. The high power hydraulic motor dives the discs via a twin gearbox system maintain disc timing even under heavy load.
