Spreaders: Bigger, Faster, Better
There will be plenty of new spreaders and product upgrades for retailers to see at this summer's equipment shows.

The MultiBin transforms the L4000G4's single hopper into three — and the micronutrient hopper can also be split to create a fourth hopper. Front hoppers dispense fertilizer products while the rear hoppers dispense micronutrients or seeding products. Constructed of 304 stainless steel, the MultiBin may be installed and removed from the L4000G4 for single-bin fertilizer or lime spreading. With suggested settings for fertilizer, urea, ag lime and wet lime, the unit's spinner assembly consistently applies up to 105-foot spread patterns with fertilizer and 60-foot with ag lime, says the company. The manufacturer also says that the New Leader G4 variable-rate broadcaster spreads material faster, wider and more consistently, even in changing weather conditions.
