It is an operating machine carried by the tractor with three point linkage.
It is used to spread granulated and pulverulent fertilizer. Spreading occurs with a rotary plate designed to grant a regular distribution over a wide area.
An angle transmission that works vertically topward is driven by the tractor through the cardan shaft and it controls a horizontal plate with a diameter of 380 – 450 mm on which falls the fertilizer from the hopper and the distribution is due to the centrifugal force.
The hopper also contains a mixer driven by the transmission output shaft with the functions to keep the fertilizer way always free from any lumps or cloggings.
Here are some average rates:
REMARK: The double fertilizer spreaders, i.e. those having two plates or distributing disks, grant a bigger work capacity thanks to their bigger spreading width.
