Aero Composites has launched a new range of products known as TDXP, which stands for Top Dressing Extra Performance. This line of products is targeted at helping top dressing operators to improve their performance and efficiency to reduce costs.
The range features an electric gatebox actuator that weighs a fraction of hydraulic systems that are being used for this purpose currently. It is a plug-and-play solution since the actuator is installed in place of the existing manual spreading system’s link rod. Safety is extremely good because the emergency dump is still done in exactly the same way as the manual system with the actuator installed in-line with the existing manual hopper lever control.
The TDXP range also include three different sized carbon fibre gateboxes to suit most top dressing aircraft hopper outlet sizes.
