Our top dress spreaders are built to hold the full weight of sand. Sand is one of the heaviest materials you can use as top dressing but our spreaders are designed to handle it. Sand weighs about 100 lbs. per cubic foot; the axles, walls, and supports on our top dress spreaders are all specifically built to handle that kind of weight. Compare that to our competition that typically only rate their machines for 40% capacity with sand. You can fill Earth & Turf equipment to 100% capacity using sand just like any other top dressing material.
The MultiSpread 65PT is one of the newest top dress spreader designs to hit the market. The 65PT was designed and built with Market Gardeners in mind but homeowners also find this spreader to be especially useful. Save your back from having to push a wheel-barrow full of compost down the rows of your garden. Instead, fill the 65PT and tow it down the bed spreading an even amount of topdressing onto your rows.
This top dress spreader is a ground drive spreader with an adjustable end-gate. Once the operator sets the gate for the depth of spread required it will spread at the same depth no matter the speed of travel.
