Whether you want a natural or synthetic fertiliser: With a fertiliser spreader, the substance is applied evenly and effectively with the fertiliser applicator. Not least because fertiliser spreaders are virtually indispensable for agricultural work and businesses. Thereby a distinction is made between cultivated and self-propelled fertiliser spreaders. The drive configuration is very different and is based on new and used spreaders either via the tractor's power take-off shaft through engines or by the wheels of each machine.
Find drop, rotatory, and liquid spreaders.
In general, both new and used fertiliser spreaders are distinguished between drop, rotatory, and liquid spreaders. With liquid spreaders, the fertiliser travels through a movable tube which makes swivel movement, spreading it on the arable land. The working width is not more than 15 metres.
Therefore, drop and rotatory spreaders have become more widespread since the maximum working width is generally greater than that of liquid spreaders. With a drop spreader, the fertiliser is distributed with up to 1000 turns a minute. Therefore, it is also known as a centrifugal spreader. A working width of up to 50 metres can hereby be achieved.
Other types of fertiliser spreaders.
Furthermore, there is a difference between pneumatic spreaders and snails spreaders. In pneumatic spreaders, the fertiliser is then spread by air flow on the pipelines and then on the arable land. With snail spreaders on the other hand, the fertiliser is spread by a spreading auger. This results in the distribution of a smaller amount of dust than pneumatic spreaders for example.
History of fertiliser spreaders.
Fertiliser spreaders have been used in agriculture for over 150 years. The history of motorised fertiliser spreaders goes mainly back to the postwar period. Through tractors, drawn mounting machines are established in order to further optimise work processes in businesses and more effectively.
See used fertiliser spreaders.
Nowadays used fertiliser spreaders are also very popular. This is due to the low prices for solid engineering. Even the rich repertoire of spare parts and accessories, which is readily available on the tractorpool site of second-hand machines, offers a long preservation of used fertiliser spreaders.
