Based at the village of Schalkwijk, near Utrecht, contractor Arnoud van Dijk has used 12.0m wide application kit since 2001, the first 2.0t system supplied by Votex. Pulled behind a 5.5t Fendt 514, stricter slurry regs required the contractor to invest in heavier kit to ensure more slurry ended up in the ground.
