Simpler spreaders

RECO has simplified its Sulky twin disc spreader range by offering two base versions which can be converted into eight different models with the addition of side extensions.

Replacing the former DPX Series 5 range, the new Prima and Expert spreaders can be specified in capacities from 900 to 2400 litres. The extensions, which are bolted to the hoppers cast steel corners are now wider to allow easier bulk loading. Underneath the hopper, both models are fitted with stainless steel guards to protect the tractor from stray fertiliser, while a deflector enables border spreading.

For electronic rate control, the Expert range is available with two systems. The simpler MS system can be operated with a Sulky drill, while the DPB type is available for more sophisticated operations such as GPS. Prices for the Prima and Expert range start at £2555 and £3425, respectively. &#42
