Our new stability wheel is another improvement we have made to the DBS. It prevents the bar from digging in at the front and lifting up at the rear.

Ausplow debuted its new Series II Multistream at the Dowerin and Newdegate field days and finished the events with a healthy inquiry list.
“A lot of people who came and saw us will probably order one if the season finishes well,” company general manager Chris Farmer said.
Standout improvements include a stainless-steel auger with poly-cupped flighting, which was a purpose design to greatly reduce or eliminate grain damage along with quiet running and increased throughput.
There’s reduced residual in the hopper for clean-out, along with a hydraulically-assisted and braked auger (with remote control) to make the auger easier tot operate.
Enhancements also have been made to the safety ladder, step-over and walkway with the option for a range of light kits.
The pump station has been enclosed and is ergonomically positioned for ease of access and servicing.
It can be retro-fitted to existing Multistream models to convert to liquid or a granular-liquid mix.
Another interesting option is a ProTrakker hitch with electrics supplied by Burando Hill.
In tow-between configuration, the hitch attached to the DBS for RTK guidance side-furrow sowing.
And all hydraulic lines are laid out on ‘cable trays’ running the length of the Multistream.
“All our poly tanks easily convert from granular to liquid and there’s a lot of flexibility in product splits,” Chris said.
“We’ll also have the capacity for liquid sectional control.”
The Multistream is available with capacities from 6000 litres to 28,000L.
Interestingly, when it was first released in 2001, it was the world’s first air seeder with liquid capacity. Today it’s a standard feature on most air seeders sold throughout Australia.
Chris also said there was positive feedback from customers about the commercial introduction of the stability wheels on DBS bars that were successfully trialed this season in dry and hard conditions to help reduce the effect of ‘wind-up’ in those conditions. Effectively, it prevents the bar from digging in at the front and lifting up at the rear.
