Features

Consistent Spread Pattern

Dual stainless steel spinners deliver a total overlapping trapezoidal pattern of up to 90 feet with an optional hydraulic drive. The standard 540 rpm PTO spinner drive produces a 50-foot pattern, as does the optional 540/1,000 rpm PTO drive.

Wider Leaf Springs

Heavy-duty 2.5-inch-wide leaf springs lower stress on the the spring and improve ride quality. The walking suspension style is great for rough and uneven terrain.

Obstruction Free Interior

The hopper is smooth with minimal flat surfaces and no internal gussets or plates to accumulate fertilizer. This results in a much cleaner system that helps prevent corrosion.

Mechanical Apron Drive

A mechanically driven drive eliminates the slippage problems of competitive friction wheel drives. They can also be equipped with an optional hydraulic conveyor drive for variable rate applications.

Simple Single-Bearing Design

One bearing part number for all driveline components on the machine greatly simplifies the maintenance and replacement process.

Split Sprocket

Allows for easy in-field replacement of worn sprockets without removal of the wheel.

Adjustable Hitch

The hitch has a moveable clevis to accommodate a wider range of drawbar heights, and allows for leveling of the spreader. The hitch is also integral to the frame, while the suspension pulls from the hitch, lowering the amount of frame stress.

Integral Lights

Sealed and rubber isolated lights are tucked neatly inside the frame.
