Dependable Construction for Long Life

The all-steel welded construction provides a solid framework and includes a reinforced tongue that pulls directly from the full-width axle. This results in a stronger, more dependable spreader since the unit is pulled from the axle rather than the front of the box.

Friction-Resistant Poly Floor

The one-piece poly floor provides more strength and durability than individual tongue and groove boards. It reduces friction resulting in lower horsepower requirements than alternative types of floors. The 1219 is equipped with a polylaminate floor.

Low Overall Height

The EasySpread box spreaders are designed with a low overall height for easy loading capability under barn cleaners and for use with a small skid loader.


Horizontal Beaters

The EasySpread® 1200 Series feature horizontal beaters. Horizontal beaters are most effectively used in spreading applications with dry, coarse materials such as pen pack or yard scrapings. They work well in situations where fast unloading and high application rates are desired. Rooster comb paddles are easily removable or replaceable, and provide enhanced spreading performance.

Multi-Speed Apron Gearbox

The multi-speed apron gearbox provides low, high and cleanout speeds for flexibility based on material type and application rate.


Low-Maintenance Design Features

Mechanical V-Belt Drive

The V-belt drive design is simple and easy to maintain. The pulleys and belts are accessible for routine maintenance through the hinged front door.

T-Bar or T-Rod Chain and Slat Apron

Single apron slats provide simple, low-cost dependability. The T-Bar and T-Rod chains are durable and easier to service compared to a pintle chain.
