INNOVATORS IN DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE OF APPLICATION TECHNOLOGY FOR AGRICULTURE

DELIVERING GREATER CAPACITY AND FLEXIBILITY IN A COMMERCIAL PULL-TYPE SPREADER


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 operations.

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.

Ideal 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 uniform application.

High Capacity Fan
• 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.

Durable 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.
Choose 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
calibrating or
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.

Easy To Operate
• 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 rate adjustments.
