The spreaders offer capacities up to 20 tonnes of urea and have a range of high specifications features including dynamic calibration as standard fitment.

Models and capacities vary from the GSR 8 (ground drive with a fertiliser capacity of 7.8 tonnes) to the GSR 20 (hydraulic drive with a capacity of 20t).

A twin-chain delivery design, variable spread width and rate, Raven ISOBUS controller and stainless steel bin and product delivery components are standard on the three largest models (GSR 13, GSR 16 and GSR 20) as is a Dynamic Calibration.

Dynamic Calibration on the twin-chain models allows the Raven controller to automatically calibrate the spreader at the touch of a button using the inbuilt load cells to ensure an accurate flow of material onto the spinners.

The spreaders are built by Rovic (a South African machinery manufacturer), assembled in Mannum, South Australia and also come standard with a full set of test trays and software to interpret the results and are available through the CNH tillage machinery dealer network.
