Salford Group Turns its Valmar 245 Pull-Type Granular Applicator up a Notch

Salford Group Turns its Valmar 245 Pull-Type Granular Applicator up a Notch

Salford's new Valmar 246 Pull-Type Granular Applicator for herbicides and seeds takes all the best features of the original 245 and marries it with more capacity and finer sectional control to increase efficiency and reduce input costs, making farmers’ lives easier along the way. 

The new Valmar 246 hopper size increases the capacity of the machine by 50% over the Valmar 245 to a total capacity of 60 cu. ft. This means farmers can cover even more acres between fills.  Four meters on the 246 enables finer sectional control, allowing farmers to manually shut the machine down to ¼ the 60 ft. boom which saves both input costs and the environment.
