Discontinued - PowerCast™ tailboard
Residue spread width

Residue spread width

To better manage residue distribution with wider platforms, the PowerCast-powered tailboard spreads residue from 11 m to 15 m  (36 ft to 50 ft). For no-till applications, this feature spreads residue evenly up to 15 m (50 ft), improving seeding equipment performance and increasing crop yields.
 
If tillage operations follow the combine, tillage equipment performance improves. PowerCast is a complete tailboard assembly that mounts to the rear of the chopper.
 
NOTE: Not recommended for platforms 9.1 m (30 ft) or less.
 
Two hydraulically driven, counter-rotating disks with paddles are mounted in the chopper tailboard.  Crop is discharged from the chopper to the spinning disks where the velocity of the residue is increased, so they can be distributed farther distances.
 
The distribution disks are driven by the same pump, and the speed is controlled by the same button on the CommandTouch™ armrest used for the straw spreader residue management option.
