Slit Injector

Introduction

Slit Injector

Add a Slit Injector to your Sward Slitter and harness the nutrient value of your slurry. Each nozzle is perfectly aligned with one of the 36 rows of blades on the slitter thus ensuring slurry is either at ground or root source on application, this provides significant reduction in nutrient losses due to volatilisation and evaporation. While splash plate slurry application only offers 20% nutrient efficiency the slit injector is estimated to give a significant benefit in comparison with 85% nutrient efficiency.

Features

Blade Edge

The points incorporate a chamfered trailing edge. This limits the turf damage when each 210mm knife comes out of the soil, so leaving a clean finish and minimising the disturbance of the grass. Each blade is clamped in from both sides ensuring a secure fixture preventing loss of bolts and blades.

grassland Slitter Blades

Heavy Duty Frame

All Sward Slitter’s come with heavy duty, robust frames for added durabilty and longevity. The frame also adds some extra weight that is needed in the dryer months ensuring the blades penetrate the ground fully, improving drainage and removing surface compaction.

Weight Carrying Rack

All machines come with a weight rack fitted as standard, optional weight are available for use in hard conditions. The concrete weights weigh 98kg and the iron weights weigh 122kg.

    

Protective Skid

The protective skids under each bearing protect the axle by limiting the working depth of the machine, they also protects the bearings from ingress of soil. The angle of each axle can be altered to 5° to make the blades more aggressive and open a wider slit if required.

Improved Aeration

The improved aeration promotes healthier soil, improved grass growth and encourages clover reproduction

Outlet Nozzles

Each heavy duty, inline, height adjustable rubber outlet nozzle, is perfectly aligned with a row of blades on the slitter thus ensuring slurry is either at ground or root source on application, this provides significant reduction in nutrient losses due to volatilisation and evaporation.

While splash plate slurry application only offers 20% nutrient efficiency the slit injector is estimated to give a significant benefit in comparison with 85% nutrient efficiency.

Vogelsang Macerator

Industry proven Vogelsang ExaCut distributor/macerator gives high performance capability and compact design. Fitted with heavy duty separator, stones and metal parts are easily removed and caught in the large capacity stone trap which has an easy drain port.

The distributor/macerator is coupled to 36 super elastic 40mm distribution pipes guiding slurry to the heavy duty inline nozzles.

Heavy Duty Injector

Heavy duty double swing arm fitted with robust double acting hydraulic line feed valve c/w Bauer HK108 (4’) female line fitting*. It is important that manoeuvrability is not compromised and tight headland turning is achievable so these characteristics have been incorporated in our design.

* Other line fittings available on request.

Slit Injector

The OPICO Sward Slitter improves aeration of plant roots in the upper soil surface, assists with surface compaction and stimulates early grass growth. When used in combination with our Slit Injector the nutrient value of slurry can be harnessed reducing losses due to volatilisation & evaporation – this will promote earlier and quicker growth in the spring.
