Micro-Pro 16

Introduction

Micro Pro Introduction

Micro-Pro TrailedThe MICRO PRO 16 has been developed to enable accurate application of micro-granules such as Avadex up to 12m working widths when mounted on a variety of implements. It has 16 outlets giving a spacing of 75cm between outlets for a robust double overlapping spread pattern. Each outlet is fed by an individual metering roller ensuring even micro granule distribution across the entire working width.

16 outlets on 12m working width - double overlapping.
Individual metering wheels for each seed outlet
Adjustable outlets balance the airflow.
Forward speed related metering ensures a constant rate.
Can be supplied with a 12m boom either mounted or trailed.

Independant Tests

In independent tests measuring the complete spread pattern, the MICRO PRO 16 spreading at 12m has produced a market leading coefficient of variation of 5.36%

Features

Metering

Unlike most other types of applicators, the OPICO Micro Pro 16 granular applicator uses individual metering wheels for each outlet enabling extremely accurate metering and guaranteeing the same amount is fed to each outlet.

This is crucially important when using low rates and small granules.

Metering rollers

Four types of metering rollers are available. The micro pro comes as standard with the blue fine roller.

Rate Control

The amount of granules applied is controlled by the speed of the metering roller and is adjusted until the desired rate is achieved.

Calibration

   

Drive mechanism

Grass seeder control box       Calibration tray       Seeder driveline

The control box in the cab allows setting and adjustment on the move, and records the area that has been travelled and how much product was put on that area.

   

On all machines this is performed by removing the metering roller cover and using the calibration tray.

   

Toothed, non slip drive belts are used to transmit power to the metering roller and agitator. Agitator disengagement for delicate material is done by simply reversing the agitator drive pulley.

 

The Micro Pro 16 machines have a speed sensing motor that is constantly checked and adjusted by the computer control box to give you a constant seed rate at all times.

Related Metering

RadarAll OPICO Micro Pro 16's come as standard with a radar unit to give constant forward speed related seed metering. It doesn’t matter if you slow down or increase your speed you will always get the correct seed rate.

Delivery

A hydraulic fan provides the airflow to deliver the granules down the pipe to the correct position on the machine.

Seed delivery

Hydraulic drive units include a fan speed sensor and alarm to warn the operator if the fan is not turned on when seeding or if there is a malfunction.

Models

Micro Pro 16 Boomed

The Micro-Pro 16 boomed 12m applicator has been developed to fit onto small tractors or be trailed to enable accurate application of Micro-Granules such as Avadex.

It has 16 Outlets giving a spacing of 75cm between outlets for a robust double overlapping spread pattern. Each outlet is fed by an individual metering roller ensuring even Microgranule distribution across the entire working width. The light weight chassis and suspended boom allow micro granules to be spread as a separate operation to maximise application output and optimise timing.

Micro-Pro 16 Trailed

The trailed Micro-Pro 16 boomed 12m applicator has been developed to be trailed by ATV's and Quad bikes to enable accurate application of Micro-Granules such as Avadex without using a tractor.

It has 16 Outlets giving a spacing of 75cm between outlets for a robust double overlapping spread pattern. Each outlet is fed by an individual metering roller ensuring even Microgranule distribution across the entire working width.
