Water Injection System with Water Wagon
updated Jan 25/2016
Sittler windrow turners come with
standard water injection systems, allowing water
or inoculants to be injected into the windrow. The systems may be hooked up with a removable tow bar, which pulls an 8 ton
Sittler Water Wagon or may be connected with an extended hose to a reservoir.

Inoculating Water Wagon
As an additional option Sittler has
also developed a specific 2 tank inoculation/compost tea application system with cone bottoms recommended for easier more efficient cleaning,
prevention of biofilms and pathogen contamination.
Compost extracts may be made directly in our Inoculating Water Wagon.
Microbes and nutrients can be extracted directly in the inoculating tank and
applied to the windrow with the Sittler Water Injection unit that is
standard on all of the Sittler turner models. Finished compost that has been
evaluated for beneficial microbial presence is placed in a mesh bag and
dunked into the water in the inoculating tank. The bag is gently massaged so
the microbes, humic acids and other nutrients are released into the solution.
Pumps may also be used.

The compost needs to be inoculated as the windrow is turned. Compost
particles experience maximum exposure during the aeration process with
microbes and nutrients being evenly distributed into the windrow. Testing
for moisture in the windrow by Dr. Elaine Ingham, founder
of SFW, showed consistent readings after inoculation
for both moisture and microbial presence.
Model 507 comes with 1 water nozzle , 509 comes with 2,
512 with 3 and the 1014 with 4 water nozzles. The nozzles inject moisture
throughout the windrow powered by a Kohler
pump. The water tank valve controls the water flow. The tank is filled by reversing the hoses on the
A hose from the tank attaches to the turner.
The water tank on the Sittler Water Wagon hooks up to a removable tow bar attached to the windrow turned
Keeping the moisture level at 50 -55% is essential for the pile to heat up causing weed seeds to germinate and die and for the elimination of phyto toxins. With the Sittler water injection system liquids are evenly distributed.
An optional remote valve controlling water flow from the tank, may be
controlled from the tractor.
Sour piles or contaminated windrows may also be remediated with the Sittler
water wagon and injection system.
