MultiSpread™ 248PT

Large Drop Topdresser Spreader

with tilmor jpg

Earth & Turf is pleased to offer the MultiSpread 248PT pull-type drop topdresser. This is almost identical to the 65PT for market gardeners but it is a much larger model! This unit is designed to spread compost on rows of varying widths. The 48” spread can be narrowed in stages to fit your row size, while the straddle width of 55” will keep wheel compaction outside of the rows and 10” height keeps the machine above raised beds. At the widest opening, the spreader will spread up to 2” of material for more efficient spreading to avoid multiple passes.

This is unit comes equipped with a standard tractor tow type tongue to fit drawbars of conventional compact tractors. It operates off of a ground drive which takes power from both of its two wheels. Your material is carried to the front of the machine on an apron conveyor belt. It is forced under an adjustable endgate that you control. This determines spreading depth.

You can use the convenient rope and clutch system to engage and disengage the spreading mechanism while on your tractor or ATV. The Earth & Turf 248PT offers a heaped capacity of 1 cubic yard and spreads 48” wide! Get your free quote today by clicking below.
