New Leader Spreader Handles Compost
A new compost spreader from Highway Equipment Co. will tackle the tough jobs quickly and accurately.
October 13, 2009
Highway Equipment Co., the leading manufacturer of New Leader multi-purpose agriculture spreaders, recently introduced the NL450C trailer-mounted compost spreader. Using the John Deere 8530, 8345R, 9000 series, or equivalent horsepower tractor for its source of power and New Leader’s patented G4 technology, the NL450C covers more ground in less time, while maintaining an accurate spread pattern, according to the company.
The compost spreader is ideal for spreading composted feedlot manure, waste water, industrial and paper mill waste, marl, poultry litter, fly ash, and other sludges.
Mounted on the John Deere TR3000 trailer, the NL450C is designed for heavier spreading needs. The NL450C features dual 30-inch spinners and tandem hydraulic pumps which increase spinner power by up to 50 percent and application rates by up to 33 percent, reducing time in the field. The 34-inch conveyor and oversized spinners each have dedicated circuits to provide needed horsepower for heavier loads and bed sides are sloped at 50 inches for smooth product movement. A stainless steel conveyor floor minimizes rust and corrosion, thus providing longer service life to the overall conveyor system.
Other features include a hydraulic oil cooler to keep oil temperatures low, ensuring peak performance; a material divider providing a uniform spread pattern by directing material off of the conveyor onto spinner discs, and a hydraulically controlled feedgate, allowing adjustments from the comfort of the cab.
The NL450C is available now exclusively through John Deere commercial application dealers and application support dealers.
