Flexibility is the name of the game when it comes to fertilizer spreaders: flexibility in application rate, flexibility in the number of products applied, flexibility in spread width, flexibility in swath control. Pretty much flexibility across the board is what most manufacturers are striving for in today’s spreader units, giving applicators the options they need to meet the nutrient demands of every field.
Take GVM’s Double Duty Twin Chain spreader, for example. The unit offers four-section automatic and manual swath control, with spread pattern ranging from 90 to 105 feet. Flexibility! Or how about Case IH’s Trident 5550 with its “optional” New Leader NL4500T G4 Edge variable-rate, dry nutrient applicator that can be configured as a single product or a MultApplier option for application of two dry products simultaneously. Again, flexibility.
