NUG 228 Fertilizer Tender
S & A’s NUG 228 fertilizer tender is designed to supply fertilizer spreaders in an efficient, continuous, labor saving manner. The NUG 228 is a self contained, gravity flow, hydraulically driven unit. The 220 cubic foot, 6 ton capacity hopper is constructed of 14 gauge stainless steel, is supported by 1/4″ steel supporting members, and is mounted on a heavy duty, tubular steel, tandem axle trailer. The 8″ discharge auger is centrally located, mounted on the left side, and is hinged to permit folding to a horizontal position during transportation. There is a clean out door on the bottom of the auger tube and a second on the lower back side of the unit for ease of cleaning, preventing needless corrosion. The auger’s speed is controlled by a variable hydraulic flow divider. The hydraulic pump is directly mounted to a 16 HP, air cooled, 4 cycle, 1 cylinder, gasoline engine. It is designed to utilize gravity to feed the discharge auger, eliminating the need for a conveyor auger. It is also equipped with a hitch jack to make it easier to hook up to the pulling unit. Options for this unit include a rear discharge auger, a flexible discharge spout, and a larger or smaller auger. All of these quality features, combined in one unit make it a very reliable, efficient, low maintenance unit that will provide you with unparalleled service for years to come.
