With the weather getting colder frost will make paths and drives potentially dangerous.
So here’s a neat little spreader to distribute salt and ice spread and keep them safe. And don’t forget you can use machines like this in the spring to spread fertilizers and lawn treatments.
The MD 176T Towed Broadcast Spreader is an efficient and value for money spreader which throws out the material as it falls on to a spinning plate under the body of the machine.
You can adjust the spread width from three to 3.6 metres via a lever so it can cover quite a large area when towed behind and ride-on or lawn tractor. It is recommended for areas up to around 4000 sq metres.
It has a sound steel frame and aluminium gears with the hopper holding around 80 kg.
It has a hitch pin connection so it can be towed by virtually any ride-on or lawn tractor.
It costs £139.95, is delivered free the next working day and has a two year warranty from the manufacturer.
Now a machine easily pushed along with a great spreading width.
The Turfmaster SB6000SS Broadcast-Spreader has a handy salt deflector which will restrict the spread to 56 cm to restrict waste and has a maximum spreading width of 3.5 metres which is easily adjusted.
