TurfEx offers new ground-drive spreaders

Equipment

The spreaders are designed to exert less impact on surfaces than similar tow-behind models, making them safe to use on greens.

TurfEx introduces two new ground-drive spreaders, the 7-cubic foot capacity TS700GR and 12-cubic foot capacity TS1200GR. Intended for use with tractors and various utility vehicles, the spreaders are designed to exert less impact on surfaces than similar tow-behind models, making them safe to use on golf course greens and sports fields. And with the ability to spread a variety of free-flowing materials including seed, fertilizer, pelletized lime and pest control products, they are also ideal for lawn care, landscape and facility maintenance applications.

The spreaders are constructed of heavy-duty, yet lightweight polyethylene, which reduces corrosion and maintenance concerns commonly associated with similar steel-built models, while making the units up to 40 percent lighter. The lightweight design helps eliminate potential turf damage and lessens fuel consumption for the towing vehicle. Additionally, the spreaders feature large flotation tires to further minimize impact on delicate surfaces.

To ensure precise material feed and spread pattern, the spreaders are equipped with a manual flow gate. Additionally, both units include a 12-inch steel spinner with adjustable fins. Spread width is infinitely variable up to 30 feet.

Spreader performance can be further fine-tuned thanks to a standard adjustable deflector. Other standard equipment includes a clear, fitted hopper cover and an integral trailer mount. All TurfEx products are covered by a two-year limited warranty.

In addition to the TS700GR and TS1200GR, the TurfEx line offers many equipment solutions for the grounds maintenance professional, including storage boxes, walk-behind spreaders, spot sprayers, bulk material spreaders, broom attachments, a variety of ZTR attachments and topdressers.
