To cover the wide range of drill sizes and application rates, Bourgault offers 2 fan options for the 8000 Series Air Carts (Standard and High-Speed).
- When choosing your air cart fan, it is important to consider both the hydraulic capacity of the tractor, as well as the air drill size. Refer to 8000 Series Specifications for hydraulic requirements.
- Bourgault provides detailed Recommended Fan Speed Settings to help Producers set the optimal fan speed for a wide range of product types and rates. Refer to the 8000 Series section of the Customer Service Center for this and other reference information for this series.
Certain conditions cause material kicked up by the air cart tire to collect on the fan intake. Fan Shields help reduce the build-up of chaff on the fan screens.
Spinning Fan Screen Option
On occasion, wind and straw conditions are such that straw can build-up on the intake screen of the air cart fan(s). Build-up can cause reduced fan performance which may lead to plugging of the air kit. Bourgault offers a Spinning Fan Screen to reduce the straw build-up in windy or loose residue conditions.
Contact your Dealer Parts Deptartment to order the Spinning Fan Screen option.
