Agrex SDA Fertiliser Spreader

Posted by Glenn Walton on Aug 15, 2017 9:00:00 AM


The SDA fertiliser spreaders are compact and light and can be pulled by low-power tractors. However, they have the same sturdiness and high precision as large agricultural machines. One of their distinctive features is quantity control through a setting gauge which guarantees accurate fertiliser distribution. If necessary, it is possible to adjust the quantities being fed into the two spreading discs. The side conveyors allow for localised spreading on row cultivation of 1.5 - 5m. The deflectors are adjustable and enable the fertiliser to be discharged where it is needed, thus avoiding unnecessary waste.

The SDA fertilizer spreaders are excellent for full field distribution even on small and medium sized unlevel ground. By adding hopper extensions, to the 800 liter model, 1000 and 1200 liter capacities can be obtained. The spreading charts supplied with the machine enable the operator to adjust the working width and the fertilizer load for a spreading width of upto 18 m.
