Over 30 years in the mak­ing, Lan­daco’s trail­ing belt spreader range of­fers the time con­scious farmer a range of op­tions for mak­ing sure they get the most out of their pad­docks.

These spread­ers are the key to in­creas­ing your prop­erty’s per­for­mance, whether us­ing them for pas­ture im­prove­ment and pro­duc­ing feed for your stock, grow­ing crops and in­creas­ing yields or gen­eral top dress­ing and fer­til­is­ing.

Cov­er­ing both the link­age and medium ca­pac­ity trail­ing units, the Agrispread range is de­signed to spread a wider range of ma­te­ri­als in the ever-ex­pand­ing ar­ray of fer­tiliser, com­posts and pre­scrip­tion blends avail­able to the modern farmer.

They are able to spread lime, gyp­sum, urea, su­per, cow ma­nure, chicken lit­ter, pig ma­nure, com­post, dolomite and seeds, us­ing 800mm dished four blade spin­ners to pro­vide an in­creased spread­ing per­for­mance, at a rec­om­mended spin­ner speed of be­tween 450–1,000rpm.

The trail­ing units are avail­able in three dif­fer­ent sizes – the 2.5-tonne T25, 3.5-tonne T35 and 4.5-tonne T45, with a ca­pac­ity of 2.5, 3.2 and 4.5 cu­bic me­tres re­spec­tively. Man­u­fac­tured and as­sem­bled in Wagga Wagga, NSW, all Lan­daco Agrispread mod­els are built to a metic­u­lous de­sign spec­i­fi­ca­tion for su­pe­rior re­li­a­bil­ity and longevity in the field.

The Agrispread’s 800mm-wide cleated con­veyor uses its proven pos­i­tive belt drive sys­tem, with no chains or mov­ing parts ex­posed to the el­e­ments.

The spin­ner as­sem­bly is ad­justable and re­mov­able, al­low­ing the spreader to be used for feed­ing grain, lay­ing gravel on roads, dis­tribut­ing ma­te­rial in rows or sim­ply shift­ing ma­te­rial from A to B.

An op­tional drip line at­tach­ment can eas­ily be fit­ted for spread­ing in vine­yards or or­chards, al­low­ing the prod­uct to be de­liv­ered on the drip line or un­der the tree with op­er­a­tor-con­trolled pre­ci­sion.

The me­chan­i­cal ground drive sys­tem is sealed, grease packed and en­closed to keep it clean and op­er­a­tional, while the high/ low range ground drive re­duc­tion is hy­drauli­cally en­gaged or dis­en­gaged from the trac­tor cabin.

Each of the spread­ers has an in-cab RPM sen­sor to mon­i­tor spin­ner set­tings and speed, with an en­closed dual speed drive line and drop con­trol deck ad­just­ment.

With the ground drive Lan­daco Agrispread trail­ing belt spreader, se­lect­ing an ap­pli­ca­tion rate and cal­i­bra­tion is made easy with the Agrispread Ex­cel-based quick-set cal­i­bra­tion soft­ware.

The user en­ters the prod­uct den­sity and de­sired spread width and the ap­pli­ca­tion rate per hectare is dis­played.

To know a prod­uct’s den­sity, the sup­plier will of­ten have a prod­uct in­for­ma­tion sheet avail­able or Lan­daco has a prod­uct den­sity scale tool.

Agrispread mod­els also fea­ture large floata­tion tyres, stain­less steel hop­per con­struc­tion and stain­less steel fas­ten­ers, with scales, tar­pau­lins and ex­ten­sions as op­tional ex­tras.

These awe­some spread­ers are the key to in­creas­ing your prop­erty’s per­for­mance.
