Available Models

Description

The PFS Series pendulum-type broadcast spreaders are capable of spreading seed, top dressings, prilled/granular fertilizer, lime, and iron at delivery rates ranging from 44 to 890 lbs. per acre with a spreading width of 20' to 46'. Optional spouts are available for narrow spreading, vineyard spreading between rows, and vineyards/orchards spreading on the rows only.

An optional internally mounted agitator helps keep material in the hopper from bridging, ensuring a continuous hopper flow and uniform delivery rate from the adjustable pattern rotary spreader. The precision spreading pattern and range of hopper capacities make the PFS Series well suited for use at vineyards, orchards, farms, golf courses, parks, athletic fields, and campuses. They also work well for municipal or commercial application of salt and sand for snow and ice control.

Frequently Asked Questions About This Product

Why does my unit leak material between GB & hopper?

Why am I getting an inconsistent discharge rate?

What spout assembly do I need?
