MultiSpread™ 220

Compost Top Dressing Spreader

Multispread 220

The MultiSpread™ 220 is one of our larger compost top dressing spreaders. The 220 is a two-wheel drive, pull-type topdresser that uses a widespread beater. The 220 is designed to carry 15 cu. ft. of sand, the Light-Material Sides™ increase that capacity to 1 cu. yd.

The Model 220 spreads wet and dry material up to 60 inches wide, depending on the type of material being applied.

The MultiSpread 220™ is available with a two-wheel ground-drive system or a hydraulic drive system. One thing that makes this compost top dressing spreader impressive is its “widespread beater” system. It can spread wet or dry material and depending on what you’re spreading, it can spread up to 60 in.

The overall width is only 45-inches so it can fit through gates, around trees and shrubs, and narrow areas while spreading material up to 60-inches.
