Pull-Behind Drop Spreader Moisture Test

The best way to know whether or not your materials will work with one of our pull-behind drop spreaders is by performing a basic moisture test. All you have to is grab handful of the material you want to spread and if it is dry enough to flow through your fingers then it will spread with one of our topdressers. The 54D is designed to handle materials with up to 25% moisture content.

What it spreads:

The 54D spreads materials that are 25% or below in moisture content. A few materials that are commonly spread by the TruFlow 54D include sand, calcined clay, crumbed rubber, and dry bagged materials. The 54D will not spread moist compost well so we recommend this spreader for Landscape Contractors and Sports Field Maintenance Departments.
