Fertilizer spreaders can be roughly divided into two groups. The first group size of fertilizer spreaders is designed to be towed behind a garden tractor or ATV. Very similar in size to the tow behind units are fertilizer spreaders that mount to the 3pt hitch of a compact utility tractor, these are ideal for landscape and small property maintenance, and the fertilizer spreaders of this size of broadcast fertilizer spreader that we sell at Everything Attachments.
The largest size units are commercial broadcast seeders / fertilizer spreaders designed and sized appropriately for agricultural tractorsand mount to the tractor's 3pt hitch. The fertilizer spreaders that are mounted to a 3pt hitch are powered by a power take off (P.T.O.) shaft from the tractor.Fertilizer spreaders of this size are our specialty at Everything Attachments.
The basic operating concept of a fertilizer spreader is simple. A large material hopper is positioned over a horizontal spinning disk, the disk has a series of 3 or 4 fins attached to it which throw the dropped materials from the hopper out and away from the seeder / fertilizer spreader. Alternately a pendulum spreading mechanism may be employed, this method is more common in large commercial spreaders. Seed, or fertilizer is loaded in the material hopper, these hoppers are commonly made of plastic, painted steel or galvanized steel.
Some turf fertilizer spreaders have directional fins to control the direction of the material that is thrown from the spreader. All broadcast fertilizer spreaders require some form of power to spin the disk. On tow behind units, the wheels spin a shaft that turns gears which, in turn, spin the disk. Usually a mechanical P.T.O. shaft connected to the tractor and controlled by the tractor operator, spins the disk.
Get more life out of your fertilizer spreader by making sure you wash it after EVERY use.
