Available for order now and delivery by mid-2019, the John Deere DN495 G5 dry spinner spreader is a factory-installed option for the F44365 high-capacity nutrient applicator.

“This adds versatility to the machine. This new dry spinner spreader option ties into the control system on the machine—as another seamless option,” says Matt Schleicher, marketing manager for John Deere application equipment. “The DN495 G5 supports the 4R approach to nutrient stewardship: the right source, the right rate, at the right time and in the right place.”

Schleicher explains the New Leader ISOBUS controller and interface pairs with the Generation 4 CommandCenter display in the cab for easy use by applicators. When outfitted with John Deere Section Control software, the G5 spreader can do half-width, boundary and full-width side-to-side control of 16 sections in the spreading swatch.

Configurations include: single bin, MultApplier (two product), and MultiBin (four product). Box options are either 409 painted steel or 304 stainless steel.
