The Agforce spinner spreader applies fertilizer, urea and lime, while the PRO-FORCE is capable of spreading high rates of these three products — plus litter and other hard-to-manage materials. According to the company, all models can be either chassis or trailer mounted and set up with 1-, 2-, 3- or 4-product capability. The spinner assembly produces a spread pattern and width that is unsurpassed, says the company. Trailer units are available with row crop or flotation tires. FORCE Unltd. notes its units boast the largest conveyor drive gearbox in the industry, in-cab electronic control of spinner speed with feedback, control valves that are removed from the "corrosive" rear end, stainless steel hydraulic lines and a valve assembly that is the most modern and reliable available.
