Why do we sell Agrex Fertilizer Spreaders?
Agrex Fertilizers and seed spreaders are the brand of choice here at Everything Attachments. We have been selling broadcast spreaders for 65 years, starting with my father at Corriher Implement Co. We have tried other brands like Cosmo, which I like the least that are made with the stamped steel gear box instead of a good casted and machined gear box with roller bearings.
We have also sold the Sitrex 3 point fertilizer spreader which are available the some importers and is a very good spreader and about the same price. Overall, I prefer and decided to sell exclusively, the Agrex PTO three point hitch and the Ground Driven Pull Type. These spreaders are the best for a few small reasons over the Sitrex brand. Both are good spreaders. There are many companies that use these same Broadcast Spreader made in Italy. Like LandPride, Woods Equipment, Bush hog and lots of major manufacturers.
There are a few American Companies making fertilizer spreaders like Herd Seed Co. They make very good spreaders, but they are also so expensive that they are hard to sell, and the truth is that you can buy a fertilizer spreader made with a poly hopper that will not rust and you can even get stainless steel unit, but the reality is that if you don’t wash out all of the fertilize and leave it to next season it will not matter how much money you spend on the spreader. All of the moving parts and gates that control distribution will be stuck and frozen up and will not turn or move the next season!
So to me the best answer is to save your money and buy Agrex spreaders and make sure that you clean out ALL the Fertilizer and oil all the moving parts to be ready for next season. Agrex spreaders also work great for distribution of grass seed and other types of seed.
The Tractor Cement Mixer is also a quality product from Agrex.
Agrex Company History
Born in Villafranca Padovana (Italy) on 10/05/1950, Silvano Barbieri finished his studies and started working at Carraro Spa in Campodarsego. At just 23, he launched his entrepreneurial career by founding “BS di Barbieri Silvano”, a small yet dynamic manufacturer of fertilizer spreaders and provider of services outsourced by third parties, one of which was Agrex. This is where Silvano Barbieri’s entrepreneurial instinct and ambitious temperament merged his and Agrex’s futures: an encounter of boundless potential that gradually took increasingly tangible shape to produce the company as it is today - a leader in the farming equipment and milling plant business exporting its products to all four corners of the globe. An important event transformed into an organization that continues to grow, driven by a man with an innate sense of commitment, a professional who manages, each day, to imbue staff with his own enthusiasm and passion for a job well done.
