The FS series spreaders from S & A Manufacturing spread manure, compost, lime, gypsum and nearly any other bulk material a farm operator wants to spread at a high rate.
The standard FS series spreader is the FS 1230. It is 12’ long and has a 30” wide bar conveyor chain. The self-contained hydraulics on this unit provide an impressive amount of power, and there is an optional heavy duty hydraulic package. The company also has a heavy duty frame, axle and wheel package available.
The hydraulics on the 1230 are fully self-contained, with a PTO pump that mounts onto the tractor. If the customer wishes, the company can eliminate the pump and equip the hoses with quick disconnects so it can be easily hooked up to the tractor’s hydraulic system. They also build a rear conveyor bander for these units. The bander is perfect for placing large amounts of material right on the burm in vineyards or orchards.
The bander and spinner assembly are interchangeable, and if both are needed, the unit can be converted in a few minutes from broadcaster to a bander
The operation of the FS 1230 spreader is very simple. By simply hooking the PTO pump or hydraulic quick disconnects to a tractor, operators can pull the unit and control the rate of delivery and width from the tractor and turn it on and off as needed. This unit can spread as much material as operators want per acre, depending on how fast the variable hydraulic controls are set and the ground speed.
