Long gone are the days of spreading seed and fertilizer by hand. Technology and design have made it easier for facility and grounds management personnel to spread more materials in less time. Today’s selection of outdoor multi-purpose material spreaders are geared to distribute a variety of materials quickly and effectively.

Here’s a look at 6 benefits of using a multi-purpose utility spreader, such as the TurfEx Spreader model #TS300EG, and how they can help improve efficiency:

1. Multi-material versatility

Precision flow control can easily be adjusted to spread a variety of materials including seed, fertilizer, top dressing, spill-control products and ice melting products.

2. High capacity hoppers

Today’s poly-hopper commercial material spreaders are lighter in weight, yet will hold greater amounts of material. This equates to substantial time savings by not having to refill the hopper as frequently.

3. Electric gate

Allows the operator to quickly and efficiently adjust the material flow without leaving the vehicle, helping to minimize material waste and saving time.

4. Variable speed controller

Provides infinite spreader width control so that you are only covering designated areas. This helps eliminate waste and reduces costs by not spreading materials where you don’t want them.

5. Easy attachment to existing equipment

Many of today’s spreaders are designed to attach to trucks, tractorsand carts through a variety of hitches and mounting options.

6. Non-corrosive construction

Rugged polyethylene hoppers and powder-coated steel frames help provide less maintenance and longer-lasting durability through all types of weather conditions and hazards.

Become more efficient and consider the potential savings that can be realized by adding a new multi-purpose material spreader to your line of outdoor equipment.
