Ground Drive Spreaders

Designed for farmers who don’t want to own separate spreaders for lime and fertilizer, the Redhawk spreader is a combination spreader that can handle both materials. Unlike dedicated spreaders, the Redhawk units are rugged enough for lime yet precise enough for fertilizer.

The Redhawk ground drive lime and fertilizer spreader features a double-contact press wheel that provides enough power to break free a packed load of lime, while still providing the ground drive precision you expect in a fertilizer spreader.

The body chain (conveyor) is driven by a press wheel that contacts both ground wheels on the walking beam suspension, providing extra traction. The press wheel is operated hydraulically from the tractor to start and stop the spreader – no ropes to pull! The spinners are powered by tractor hydraulics or PTO mechanically driven. Spread rates are determined by the gate height, and the ground drive mechanism ensures a constant spread rate regardless of travel speed.
