Needham Ag Y Brakes are designed to merge two 1 1/4” OD hoses into a single 1 1/4” OD hose. They are used within tramline kits and also by growers that mount air-tanks (such as Gandy systems) on air-seeder toolbars to add cover crops to the air-stream.
The Needham Ag Y Brakes are made from 1mm thick stainless steel and incorporate 2mm holes, which allow the seeding of most crops, down to smaller seeds including ryegrass, canola and radishes. They are not recommended for seeding smaller seeds, such as alfalfa unless the holes on the lower half of the Y brake are temporarily sealed with masking tape.
Needham Ag Y Brakes are shipped with 3 x hose clamps.
