Ausplow’s M24000 tow-between granular and liquid-ready Multistream air seeder. It’s one of an eight model range with several models to be showcased at machinery field days throughout Australia during the next two months.

Feedback from Ausplow DBS owners has confirmed a growing desire to move to liquid nutrients at seeding.
And this is reflected in an increase in sales of Ausplow’s granular and liquid-ready Multistream air seeder, which is designed with electric over hydraulic variable rate technology and liquid section control.
“We’re now consistently getting more orders for the complete Ausplow rig of the DBS and Multistream,” company sales and marketing manager Chris Blight said.
“And we’ll have the rig on display at most of the field days we’ll be attending over the next two months.”
Ausplow released its eight model Series II Multistream range last year with the new models ranging in capacity from 14,000 litres to 28,000L and according to Chris, there’s a host of changes which represent “big value for money”.
“I think more importantly, though, is the fact we are evolving the Multistream with the DBS precision seeder to position both products at the cutting edge of new farming technologies,” he said.
“Farmers definitely want value for money but they also want products that are flexible to suit their individual needs and we’re providing that, along with equipment that is strongly-built and made in WA.”
The main new features include:
• A stainless-steel air system, implement guidance systems-ready, updated hydraulic control valve which is ISOBUS-compatible to suit the most popular controllers in the market;
• A fully hydraulic 10-inch diameter auger with remote control as standard (stainless steel barrel and smooth poly-cupped flytes, delivering gentle and quiet action to reduce seed and fertiliser damage);
• Hydraulic metering to suit variable rate applications from prescription maps;
• A dual fan option to cater for higher rates and wider bars;
• A stainless steel Hypro pump with ‘dial-up’ agitation;
• Push-button LED light package mounted on the chassis for implements, service, walkway, auger and safety;
• Diversion of heated air from the heat exchanger into delivery hoses; separate looms for lights, cameras and controller;
• Marine-grade stainless steel metering units;
• Optional cameras are fitted onto the granular metering unit;
• Choice of tyres or tracks and a re-designed safety platform (tow-behind models).
• Collapsible walkway.
All models come in tow-between configurations with specific tow-behind models being the M14000, M15000, M18000 and M19500. And there’s a specialist polyethylene small tank (1500L) for small seeds, dry inoculants and other granular-type products.
Models come with single or dual wheels, and for CTF systems options for three-metre centres.
“We’ve also done a lot of work to make the Multistream more functional and easier to use and service,” Chris said.
“An example is the positioning of a small accumulator as oil enters the heat exchanger radiator to eliminate oil surges.
“Such events cause high pressure and can crack the radiator.
“There’s also the ability to bridge tanks to suit product configurations.
“We have capacities from 1500 litres to 4700L which can be bridged, for example, a 4700L and a 4400L to give you 9100L of the same product.
“Another example is a separate fill station with a 75mm connection for faster fill, which comes as standard on all models.
“And the stainless cabinet which houses the liquid work station is easily accessed for service and has an added feature where you can flush the bar circuit, apart from tank rinse and purging controls.
“We’ve also designed a stand-alone hungry board to attach to the auger hopper to increase in-fill capacity.
“This can then be easily and quickly removed when the auger is used for back-fill.”
Ausplow’s specialist staff will be attending most major machinery field days throughout Australia.
