Mounted Spreader for the Medium Size Market Segment
Vicon RO-M GEOSPREAD twin disc spreader is the ideal spreader for farmers in the medium segment. With innovative spreading solutions from Vicon, work become easier and more profitable. The GEOSPREAD system helps with individual section control to avoid unnecessary overlap. To prevent variation in the spreading patterns, the disc speed is not changed during section control. The spreading width of 33 metres can be decreased on both sides, adjusted to only spread outwards or to one side only. With a hopper capacity of 2800 litres, the RO-M GEOSPREAD fertiliser spreader makes a perfect combination with smaller tractors.
We have invested in a Vicon RO-M GEOSPREAD to get the precision we need on our farm.
"The equal distribution of fertiliser is very important for us. We have experienced that the 8 vanes per disc ensure a continuous flow of fertiliser and an equal spreading pattern. The RotaFlow spreading system guarantees an optimal spreading result for the best yield of our crop and that's exactly what we need to run our farm."
As the Vicon mounted spreaders are compatible with ISOBUS and are AEF certified, you can combine the spreader with any ISOBUS compatible tractor terminal for easy and efficient farming.

When running IsoMatch GEOCONTROL in addition to GEOSPREAD you can set the RO-M/RO-EDW/RO-XXL GEOSPREAD more accurately. The working width will be automatically adjusted to suit the overlap and coverage using a GPS positioning system. For example, when driving in a wedge or irregular shaped field, GEOSPREAD will start to decrease the working width step by step. GEOSPREAD is using the section control function of the IsoMatch GEOCONTROL software which is in the IsoMatch Tellus PRO or IsoMatch Tellus GO+ terminal. The spreader working width is divided into a minimum of 1 metre sections (max. 45 sections on RO-XXL GEOSPREAD, max. 54 sections on RO-EDW GEOSPREAD and max. 33 sections on RO-M GEOSPREAD). Not only the spreading width is adjusted, the application rate (kg/min) is also adjusted automatically to match the revised spreading width. This unique combination of working width and application rate adjustment makes the GEOSPREAD system extremely accurate, with minimum influence on the spread pattern coefficient of variation.
With the AutosetApp you have always the most up to date settings for your weighing spreader available. The AutosetApp is an App (software application) available on the IsoMatch Tellus PRO or IsoMatch Tellus GO+ terminal. The AutosetApp is standard integrated into the IsoMatch GEOCONTROL software. This App connects the terminal directly with the GEOSPREAD weighing spreader and will automatically adjust the spreader according to the settings entered into the App. The AutosetApp will also work in combination with the RO-M EW and RO-EDW, with the exception being for those spreaders the discharge point (letter setting) still needs to be adjusted manually on the spreader itself.
The Vicon fertiliser spreader database with the most up to date spreading charts is always available online. The AutosetApp can connect to the fertiliser spreading database in two different ways. You can connect it to the online database via the IsoMatch Wireless WIFI USB adapter or download the most actual database from the website www.viconspreadingcharts.com on an USB stick and upload the database directly into the IsoMatch Tellus PRO or IsoMatch Tellus GO+ terminal.
For even more precision
MULTIRATE (Variable Rate Application) applies multiple rates within a working width.
In order to spread the right amount of fertiliser at a specific place in a field there is a need to have a different rate within the working width. Depending on the field variation and the size of the grid of the variable application map, input of 2, 4, 6 or 8 rate sections can be used. This means a more accurate application of nutrients to have a better nutrient efficiency, better yield and reduce costs.
With a Vicon GEOSPREAD spreader you invest in 100% ISOBUS compatibility for easy plug and play with the IsoMatch Tellus PRO or any other AEF certified terminal. In just some steps with this combination you are ready to use MULTIRATE. You have to convert a satellite or soil map into an ISO-XML file. Download the Variable Rate Map into the terminal and you are ready to spread with MULTIRATE with 2 up to 8 rates.
The front-rear combination will not only increase the total capacity up to 6000 or 7000 litres, but also the efficiency and nutrition accuracy will be increased by spreading two different applications in one pass. Instead of spreading a blend it is possible to apply two different fertiliser types with different physical properties, both with a correct setting to get a perfect nutrient accuracy and spreading pattern. As a result, there will be an increased yield and more efficient use of the applied fertiliser.
Perfect weight balance
With a spreader in the rear and one in the front there is an increase in capacity and at the same time a perfect weight balance on the tractor. This means that there is less ground pressure, which results in less soil compaction. In case there is no PTO shaft available at the front of the tractor, the central hydraulic driveline on the GEOSPREAD spreaders can be used. The TrimFlow border spreading device can be added on the left and right hand side for spreading borders and headlands.
The different GEOSPREAD models, with different hopper capacities, can be combined in the front and the rear. On the ISOBUS terminal each disc spreader can be selected and the correct setting can easily be entered. Section control will automatically switch on and off sections on both spreaders to minimise overlap. With the Variable Rate Application on all the Vicon GEOSPREAD spreaders it is possible to automatically adjust the application rate separately from the front and rear spreader. For even more precision MULTIRATE applies multiple rates within a working width, independently from the front and rear spreader.
