Applying dry fertilizer remains an efficient way to keep a crop going, and prep for the following year. Loftness Specialized Equipment has launched the FertiLogix line of products, including two new 8-ton fertilizer spreaders. The FS800 standard spreader and the RC800 high-clearance row crop spreader offer a solid spread pattern and variable rate capability to meet the rising demand for precision application.
The FS800 spreader (left) features a double-axle design with an integral adjustable-height hitch and 2.5-inch-wide leaf springs, providing level operation and improved ride on uneven terrain.
The RC800 spreader has a single-axle design with a 44-inch frame clearance for in-season applications - a growing trend. This allows operators to spoon-feed nutrients to the crop as needed. The RC800 includes an infinitely variable tread width from 80 to 120 inches to meet any row spacing.
Both models feature stainless-steel spinners, delivering a consistant 40- to 50-foot wide spread pattern using a 100% overlapping triangular pattern. The spreaders come standard with a positive mechanical conveyor drive, and can be equipped with an optional hydraulic conveyor drive for variable rate applications.
To avoid issues with fertilizer buildup, flat surfaces are minimized through the spreaders. And clean hopper interiors contain no gussets, plates or other obstructions for fertilizer to catch. And an optional roll tarp is also available. Learn more by contacting [email protected] or visit loftness.com.
