Product Focus: Landaco Agrispread
Landaco’s Agrispread range can handle anything you throw at it
Over 20 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 awesome 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," Landaco says.
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 rate 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, 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 product’s density and the desired spread width are entered, including a door height, and your application rate per hectare is displayed.
To know a product’s density, the supplier will often have a product information sheet available or Landaco have 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.
