Kuhn Axis 40.1 W fertilizer spreaders provide operators with high flow rates, precise material flow, accurate spreading and reduced spreading time for more profitable operation. A flow rate of up to 1,100 pounds per minute provides a high working rate of 500 pounds per acre when moving at 12 MPH due to the specially designed hopper base.

The broken angles on the hopper allow for better material flow and less residue after spreading. The slow-rotating agitator provides gentle handling of seed and fertilizer, while maintaining consistent material flow without plugging. With the Coaxial Distribution Adjustment® (CDA) system, accurate spreading can be achieved over the entire width of the machine without having to adjust the disc paddles. In addition, Kuhn thoroughly tests all fertilizer spreaders to ensure that they accurately spread all types of fertilizer. The weighing system on the Axis 40.1 W automatically adjusts the outlet openings when spreading conditions change for precise application. Critical components are made of stainless steel for less corrosion and maintenance and longer working life.


CDA: Unrivaled Accuracy

There are two important features that make the CDA (Coaxial Distribution Adjustment) system unique:

  1. The pivoting hopper base enables quick adaptation to various fertilizers and working widths by adjusting the drop point of the fertilizer onto the spreading discs.
  2. Specially designed metering outlets close to the center of the discs allow multiple supply points to the paddles. This helps ensure constant fertilizer flow and an even spread pattern.

Kuhn Electronics

Kuhn electronic solutions for Axis fertilizer spreaders, both ISOBUS and non-ISOBUS, make use of proven technology to increase spreading accuracy as well as driver comfort.

Quantron A/E-2: Your Spreading Assistants Quantron virtual terminals electronically adjust the metering outlets to maintain a consistent application rate relative to your ground speed. During spreading you are able to:

  • Modify the application rate
  • Activate Border Control
  • Simultaneously open or close either side with a simple button

The terminals also feature a work counter for 200 fields and integrated spreading charts.

ISOBUS: Reduce the Number of Terminals Needed (Specific Noted Machines)
ISOBUS, the universal language, allows different equipment (tractor, machine, home computer) to communicate with each other. You can monitor and transmit information about different machines with one single terminal, the Kuhn CCI 100 or any other ISOBUS compatible terminal. This allows compatibility with all ISOBUS tractors to simplify operation.

Weighing System: Simple Application Regulation

Two weigh cells in cooperation with the electronic terminal (Quantron E-2 or ISOBUS) allow you to adapt the application rate automatically while spreading. Every second the terminal checks if the flow corresponds to the programmed rate and adjusts it for precision and control.

Border Spreading

The border spreading feature controls overspreading at field borders or waterways. It can be adjusted to match your specific needs and can also be raised out of the way when not in use on mechanical models. Hydraulic drive models achieve border spreading without any additional components. On these models, disc speed and fertilizer drop point are automatically adjusted to prevent overspreading.

GPS Control

Utilize your existing GPS virtual terminal in conjunction with the Kuhn-supplied Quantron or as a standalone on ISOBUS machines. You may also purchase the CCI virtual terminal from Kuhn for ultimate plug-and-go simplicity on ISOBUS machines. This allows you to tailor your application to your soil’s potential while saving significant amounts of fertilizer. Please contact your dealer to verify outside ISOBUS virtual terminal capabilities. Software by provider maybe required for premium features.
