Padova, Italy - Maschio Gaspardo introduces the Primo series, its new electronic fertilizer spreader with weighing controls to ensure maximum precision during distribution. Available in 8 models, Primo has working widths of about 78-118 feet.

PRIMO presents many innovations:

•Independent activation/stop of distribution
•Independent electronic rate system
•Double-shutter opening section, to limit "dose effect" (the reduction of uniformity in distribution)
•Electronic rate control with loading cell

The double-shutter and the electronic dosage system allow a precise fertilizer distribution on the field and the hopper capacity can be easily expanded.

Primo's features also include:

• Fertilizer-moving system, with spinning and rotating device
•Stainless spreading discs easy to replace and perfectly balanced in order to reduce vibrations
•A boundary spreading system to achieve the desired rate even on fields heads and borders
•Completely greased lubricated transmission (no maintenance)
•Heavy-duty frame: PRIMO is made in high tensile steels and multi-layer paint

PRIMO is also available in a mechanical version, with manual rate system adjustment and hydraulic double-shutter opening section.
