This walk-behind broadcast spreader from Gardencare is tough, strong and durable, making it a good choice for year round use. In the warmer months, it is great for spreading seed, fertiliser or weed killer. Likewise, in winter it can be used to distribute de-icing material such as salt or ice melt. Whatever the weather, the rain cover supplied will protect the contents from the elements, keeping them dry and free-flowing.
The spreader has a hopper capacity of 36kg / 80lb / 29 litre with a typical spread width of 10-12 feet.
Use of chemically-inert and corrosion resistant materials will keep the spreader operational for a long working life. The hopper is manufactured from a strong polymer which possesses excellent impact resistance qualities, even in low temperatures. Similarly, the dispensing gear is made from nylon, so the spreader is capable of withstanding even the most aggressive chemicals.
Careful attention detail continues through to the chassis design, which also benefits from a corrosion-resistant finish and is mounted on 12" diameter pneumatic tyres. The rate setting lever is conveniently located on the spreader handle for ease of adjustment when you need it.
Complete with screen and rain cover, the Gardencare AC31504 push-propelled spreader will keep on going, even in adverse weather conditions.
