Bulk Material Spreaders

For farmers who don’t want to own separate spreaders for both lime and bulkier materials such as chicken litter and compost, the Bulk Material Spreader is a combination spreader that can spread most materials.  Unlike many litter spreaders, the Bulk Material Spreader is rugged enough for spreading stockpiled lime.  It can even be fitted with a fertilizer package, allowing rates as low as 200 lbs/acre.

BMS spreaders come standard with PTO powered body chain and spinners run by tractor hydraulics.  Spread rates are determined by ground speed and gate height, and a constant ground speed is required to maintain a consistent spread rate.  All BMS spreaders come standard with a heavy duty walking beam suspension.  The large hoppers, 30 inch wide body chain and 16 inch high rear gate opening allow for high spread rates of light, bulky materials, while the rugged driveline is designed to handle lime.
