What to Look for in a Spreader
When deciding which type of spreader to use it is important to match the spreader with the application. For example, if you need to spread sand or top soils you will want to use a "top dresser" like the TurfEx MS4500. If you plan to spread fertilizer use a spreader that can be calibrated.
In addition to the type of material being spread, it is important to consider how big the spreading job is going to be. A large capacity equipment mounted spreader would be a better choice than a push spreader for a large turf area. Whereas, using a push spreader for a residential application makes more sense than using a large vehicle operated spreader.
Accuracy, dependability, and strength make a spreader valuable to the landscape and grounds professional, so look for spreaders with features including:
- Constructed from non-corrosive parts
- Easily calibrated
- Accurate & dependable calibration
- Versatility to handle a variety of applications
