IN DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE OF APPLICATION TECHNOLOGY FOR AGRICULTURE
GREATER CAPACITY AND FLEXIBILITY IN A COMMERCIAL PULL-TYPE
Cover More Acres In Less Time
•Designed to meet the needs of large commercial
operations, the Valmar Airflo 6600 is a high capacity
pull-type spreader that delivers the highest rates of
application currently available in a commercial spreader.
Thanks to its advanced design the Airflo 6600 delivers
rates as high as 1000 lbs./acre at 8 m.p.h., allowing you
to finish large jobs faster than ever before. Best of all,
it’s from Valmar, which means that you know it contains
only thoroughly tested and proven technology, and is
rugged enough to withstand the rigours of commercial
Accurate Metering System
• The Airflo 6600 precision rate and placement of
product is delivered through a ground driven metering
system that automatically adjusts on the go to ensure a
uniform application rate regardless of ground speed. The
hydraulically engaged metering system is based on a 30
setting oil bath gear box combined with a two speed gear
ratio to allow 60 settings that can be adjusted in
increments of seven percent. This allows you to select
from more settings at closer increments, a feature that
translates into more control over your application rate
for substantial savings in fertilizer costs.
Spread more Product Between Fills
• The 6600’s extra large 200 cubic foot hopper can
carry up to six tons of product. With a capacity like that
you’ll be able to cover more acres between fills. The
hopper itself is constructed of corrosion resistent 304
stainless steel and comes with a roll tarp installed.
Reversible gear ratios double the available settings on the
metering gear box.
For Row Crop Farming
• Specifically designed to meet the needs of row crop farmers,
the 6600 features axles which can be adjusted from 72" to
120" to accommodate most row spacings. In addition, the 6600
can be equipped with optional tire sizes to achieve greater
flotation or narrower tracking depending on your operation.
• The 1000 RPM PTO powers the fan which provides airflow for
• Designed and engineered by Valmar, this 1000 R.P.M. P.T.O.
driven fan has field proven history on the Air Max. With an
operating speed of 4700 R.P.M. the fan’s airflow feeds through a
nine inch outlet direct to a two-piece manifold. Important
features include a 17" fan impeller with plastic impeller
blades and a four band fan belt with tightener.
And Easy To Maintain
• The 6600 includes a number of important features that provide
for increased durability and easier maintenance. For long life,
the hopper and booms are manufactured from stainless steel. There
is easy access to all mechanical parts including the manifold.
Finally, calibration and emptying of the unit is easier thanks to
funnel trays that are inserted under the metering system for easy
collection of material.
• Rubber torsion boom suspension.
Boom Width To Match Your Needs
• The Valmar 6600 comes with a standard 60' boom, but can also
be equipped with optional boom widths of 54' or 57', allowing you
to match boom width to your crop requirements. Booms are
hydraulically folded and feature a hydraulic shut-off on the right
boom to allow application on the left side only. All booms are
equipped with rubber torsion boom suspension (which do not require
any service and reduce friction, bouncing and wear) and manual
folding, break away tips to minimize damage that may occur from
striking obstacles in the field.
The manifold can
be easily removed
and a funnel tray inserted for collecting material when
emptying the hopper.
1 - The unit comes standard with a hydraulically
engaged mechanical clutch to shut off the right boom.
• 2 - The optional second metering system
features electrically engaged clutches for operation of
either boom (left, right or both booms).
• When boom reaches transport position a sequencer valve
activates the cylinder to lock boom in place for transport.
• Designed for easy use, all important field operations on the
Valmar 6600 are hydraulically controlled from the cab through the
use of three separate hydraulic lines. For example, the booms are
folded, unfolded and locked hydraulically (through the use of a
sequencer valve) allowing quick and easy transition to and from
transport position. Also, the metering drive wheel is engaged or
disengaged hydraulically and comes equipped with a lockout valve
to ensure ongoing positive engagement. Finally, half width
application is possible thanks to a hydraulically operated half
shut-off clutch system that comes equipped with a pressure relief
valve for trouble free operation.
The 30 speed metering box allows seven percent increments between
