NL4500G4 Edge Variable Dry Rate Nutrient Applicator
Ride the forefront of precision application technology with the Edge: putting dry products exactly where and when crops need them, and responsible nutrient management in the operator’s hands
The Edge Follows the 4Rs of Nutrient Management
- Right Source – Matches nutrient type to crop needs
- Right Rate – Matches amount of nutrients to crop needs
- Right Time – Makes nutrients available when crops need them
- Right Place – Keeps nutrients where crops can use them
The Edge comes standard with dual RPM sensors and pulse width modulation (PWM) spinner control valves, letting operators maintain precise speed on each individual spinner within 5 RPM. With a mere flip of a switch, operators can apply nutrients along a boundary line, leading to improved nutrient placement and less nutrient waste.
The best field results only come with the most precisely manufactured equipment, and the Edge delivers. Advanced product techniques like laser cutting and slot-and-tab design create self-centering components such as the material divider and spinner frame. Precision on the back end translates to a machine that maintains a consistent drop point and repeatable product placement.
The Edge is built with the operator in mind, maximizing time in the cab and simplifying maintenance. A flip-up hillside divider lets operators move easily between spreading lime and other products while maintaining max flow, and without getting out the toolbox. Front and rear grease banks make machine greasing easy and efficient. 304 stainless steel cross tubes, mounts, and take-up brackets provide maximum corrosion resistance on key high-wear components.
Experience fast and exact conveyor control, independent spinner speed control, and extended conveyor life with the Edge’s superior hydraulics system. High-tech sensors give operators early insight into potential issues by monitoring hydraulic condition and performance based on fluid level, temperature, and filter restriction along with conveyor and system pressure. Multiple test ports make in-field service and diagnostics easy and convenient.
Extend Conveyor Life
The Edge maintains proper chain adjustments with an automatic chain tensioner. Continuous tension helps extend conveyor life. In addition, operators can receive automatic lubrication alerts after a fully customizable designation of conveyor run time.
MultApplier for Dual Product Application
Economics and productivity aren’t exclusive; reduce man hours, field compaction, and fuel consumption by applying two products in a single pass with the MultApplier, available in 5- or 7-foot sizes. The NL4500G4’s bolted-in endgate makes this optional component easy to install and remove.
MultiBin Fertilizer and Micronutrient Spreader
Transform a single-bin spreader to three or even four bins with the revolutionary MultiBin fertilizer and micronutrient spreader. This innovative design gives operators the power to broadcast materials independently, simultaneously, straight, or at variable rates, all while covering more acres with less trips across the field.
The front two hoppers dispense fertilizer products, while the rear hopper dispenses micro-nutrients or seeding products. The rear hopper can also be split to create a fourth hopper, adding even more versatility and productivity. The MultiBin can be easily installed and removed from the spreader for single-bin fertilizer or lime spreading.
New Leader User Interface
New Leader makes it easy for operators to jump in the cab and get to work in the field. The Edge continues that tradition with plug-and-play ISOBUS electronics that hook into RBR controllers through standardized plugs, cables, and software. The New Leader interface incorporates the power of diagnostic feedback, automatic service notifications, boundary spreading, feed gate optimizer, low bin countdown, and automated chain oiler. It can also be expanded to control multiple bins.
Because all Edge models are designed with advanced ISOBUS technology, the electronics easily connect with RBR controllers and operators only need to learn one system, cutting down on troubleshooting and increasing time spent in the field. All Edge ISOBUS systems are extensively tested to ensure maximum reliability and performance.
