Versatile Air Carts are available in both tow-between and tow-behind models. Air carts range in size from 315 bu to 390 bu. Accurate seeding results are achieved no matter what type of seed is used.
|Peak HP||315 bu. (11,100 L or 8.4 tonnes)||390 bu. (13,743 L 10.5 tonnes)||646 bu. (22,700 L or 17.6 tonnes)|
Versatile Air Carts are available with either mechanical or variable rate set-ups.
Viewing all air cart functions from in the cab is critical to ensure trouble free seeding. Digital application rates, fan rpm, area per hr/field/season and ground speed can all be viewed by the operator while seeding. Bar graphs for each bin level are controlled by 4 bin level sensors to allow operators the ability to plan ahead for fills.
In-Cab Rate Control Monitor
An In-Cab Rate Control Monitor allows the operator to adjust the metering rates on-the-go from the tractor cab. An Electric Actuator located on each variable speed transmission increases or decreases application rate.
All models feature heavy-duty Warner 12 volt electromagnetic clutches as standard equipment on both the main drive and each individual tank. The main drive clutch can be either manually controlled by the operator, or in placed Auto mode.
This option provides an operator with the ability to monitor the flow of product from the cab and will create an alarm if a hose should become plugged. The Optical Blockage Sensors do not rely on contact as competitive pinstyle sensors do, which can result in plugging.
Unique “Monitor Down” feature
All models feature a fully mechanical metering drive system that allows the operator to continue seeding even if a complete monitor system failure has occurred. Versatile does not recommend operating without a monitoring system, however instances can arise when this emergency mode is necessary. This important feature can prevent costly down time.
Simple, accurate seeding results start with an air delivery system designed for dependable, consistent results.
A 13" (330 mm) Crary fan is dynamically balanced and highly efficient. This fan develops sufficient air volume to allow for double shooting large application rates.
A 17" (432 mm) fan delivers large volumes of air at slower speeds, minimizing seed damage. The efficient use of air flow allows the operator to single or double shoot sizeable application rates with a single fan.
An easy to use mechanical metering system allows for consistent accurate metering of all seed types.
Step 1: Input desired application rate into monitor.
Step 2: Crank out product sample into rate pan, weigh product and input weight into monitor.
Step 3: Install displayed Quick-Change sprocket combination (Mechanical Systems). Zero-Max transmission (Variable Rate Systems) will position itself.
The simple design of Versatile Air Carts allows you to spend less time in the yard and more time in the field. Easy to fill, easy to adjust and easy to clean out the air carts maintain the simplicity you expect from Versatile.
Removing product from any tank compartment is as simple as positioning the auger under the tank and then opening the total tank cleanout door. Versatile has designed the metering roller system so operators can conveniently inspect the roller when tanks are either empty or full.
Fold down railings and a low tank height allow for off-season storage in sheds with less clearance. A large platform with a ladder on each side, provides convenient access to the top of the tank.
Large 22" x 26" (559 x 600 mm) tank openings provide operators with faster filling times. The adjustable over-center lid locks maintain positive air pressure within each compartment. Tank screens are standard to keep out unwanted debris.
Automatic Work Switch
Included as standard equipment, this industrial switch will engage and disengage the main drive clutch automatically when lowering or raising the seeding implement. A manual position is also provided to give clutch control to the operator.
An 8" (203 mm) diameter load/unload auger is standard on all air cart models. A larger 10" (254 mm) diameter auger is optional for models AC280 and AC400. Balanced for a one-man operation, the 8" auger will fill 315 bushels in 7 minutes.
