Another Ausplow Multistream air seeder left the Ausplow factory last week bound for Ausplow Albany dealers Farmers Centre 1978 Pty Ltd which has sold the liquid-ready unit to a local farmer. Increased popularity of the Multistream has seen factory production slots filled until June 2022 with forward orders for 2023.

Another Ausplow Multistream air seeder left the Ausplow factory last week bound for Ausplow Albany dealers Farmers Centre 1978 Pty Ltd which has sold the liquid-ready unit to a local farmer. Increased popularity of the Multistream has seen factory production slots filled until June 2022 with forward orders for 2023. This model is a 28,000 litre tow-between with seven poly tanks to cater for multiple liquid mixes.

The increasing popularity of Ausplow’s Multistream airseeder, with liquid capabilities, has resulted in a full order book for the 2022 seeding season, with demand spilling over to fill production spots for the 2023 season.
There is a possibility for several production slots in May 2022 for post seeding delivery and interested DBS owners are urged to contact their local dealer for more details.
Factory orders for DBS precision seeders for 2022 were filled several months ago.
According to Ausplow general manager Chris Farmer, the company is poised for more growth on the back of increased demand for the Multistream.
“As the name implies, it has the capacity to handle multiple liquids which is a desirable feature for farmers expanding their liquid requirements,” Chris said. “The most popular option at the moment is a dual liquid feed to deep band liquid compound fertilisers while injecting wetters with the seed.
“There are other owners who require more tanks as they embrace liquid trace elements and other liquid nutrient mixes streaming to strategically-placed locations on the DBS module.
“This is then delivered in a pencil stream under pressure into the soil.”
The Multistream is designed with electric-over-hydraulic variable rate technology and liquid section control.
The main new features include:
• A stainless-steel air system, implement guidance systems-ready and an updated hydraulic control valve which is ISOBUS-compatible to suit the most popular controllers in the market;
• A fully hydraulic 10-inch (250mm) 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 three-inch (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.”
