IMS New Zealand has recently released the latest addition to the Ground-Effect Group of products, the Ground-Effect Lime Bucket.
The Ground-Effect Lime Bucket is designed specifically for the heavy and fast application of lime and similar products offering an adjustable application rate of up to 2000 Kg/Ha or 1786 Lbs/Acre.
Flick through the images above to see our lime bucket in action or check out the video below of our spreader, which operates in very much the same way with the lime bucket.
The bulk application bucket operates on pneumatics powered by aircraft bleed air or a bucket mounted air compressor. Adjustment of the door opening position allows the operator to vary the application rate simply and quickly without the requirement of any special tools.
Agitator systems are also available for the bulk application bucket which minimises the risk of product bridging or hanging up in the bucket.
This system is available in a range of sizes and comes complete with certified lifting strops, a spreader bar suited to your helicopter, and all wiring and airlines required to suit your helicopter configuration.
