Kuhn introduces the Montag 2208 dry fertilizer system. 2208, based on the popular Gen II platform, is equipped with 2 x 50 cu ft tanks (total capacity approx. 3.5 tons) and is available for 4-, 6- and 8-row 3-point mounted machines making it attractive to growers looking for a smaller capacity fertilizer unit more suited to these Kuhn Krause Gladiator models.
Although always fitted with two tanks, 2208 can be ordered with single product metering for reduced cost or with dual product metering bringing the benefits of the Gen II product range to smaller strip-till units for the first time. Section control is also optional, with the choice of one or two sections being offered.
All machines will be supplied with the Montag ISOBUS dry rate controller and ISOBUS scales as standard. As with other Montag dry fertilizer systems for the 3-point mounted KUHN Krause Gladiator, 2208 will need to be mounted to a Montag steerable cart (ordered separately) and towed behind the toolbar.
The Montag 2208 can apply fertilizer at rates up to 500 lbs/acre per tank (maximum total rate: 800 lbs /acre). With no metering cartridges to change out, variation of application rate is stepless throughout the range.
As with all Montag products, the environment in which 2208 will work has been taken into account throughout the design: all components which come into direct contact with fertilizer are manufactured from either plastic or food-grade stainless steel, and all other components are designed to be resistant to corrosion and provide many years of reliable service.
The Montag 2208 is available to order from KUHN as of June 1, 2021, for use with 4-, 6- or 8-row 3-point mounted KUHN Krause Gladiators. Field install options are available for customers wishing to retrofit 2208 to an existing 1205M or 1200M series KUHN Krause Gladiator (compatible steerable cart and hitch is required).
