MultiSpread™ 320

Tow Behind Compost Spreader

top dressing spreader earth and turf peoducts

The MultiSpread™ 320 is Earth & Turf’s largest tow behind compost spreader. It’s perfect for spreading compost, sand, topsoil and other topdressing materials

This commercial sized, tow behind compost spreader uses a wide spread beater design for its application system. The Model 320 spreads wet and dry material in various widths, averaging 60″ with most materials. It’s designed to carry 27 cu. ft. of sand (Or 2,700 lbs. of sand). The Light-Material Sides™ increase its capacity to 2 cu. yds. (or 54 cu. ft.) for lighter materials but the Light-Material Sides cannot be used with sand as this would exceed the weight capacity of the machine and would void the warranty. 

The MultiSpread 320™ is available in two-wheel ground-drive or hydraulic drive versions. The spreader utilizes a “widespread beater” system and will spread wet or dry material in patterns up to 72 in. wide. It is most commonly used to spread compost and other lighter topdressing materials but it does work well to spread sand on golf courses. This is a big brother machine to the MultiSpread 220 top dresser from Earth & Turf.
