Spreaders: Bigger, Faster, Better
Willmar Super 800, Willmar/AGCO
Made of 409 stainless steel, the Willmar Super 800 features a mechanically simple chain and gear conveyor system that is directly driven by the spreader’s ground speed through chains and pulleys. A 540 rpm PTO drive is standard, a dual drive 540/1,000 rpm PTO is optional. Two 40-feet or 50-feet spinners create a total spread pattern of 80 feet or 100 feet respectively, and, using a 100% overlap, produce a pyramid-type pattern. A single spinner has a 65-foot total spread pattern with a single pass, flat-type pattern. The two-speed conveyor allows the operator to control application rates of 39 pounds to 1,033 pounds of material per acre. The rig’s capacity is 244 cubic feet struck, 264 heaped.
