Salford Group expands its line of mounted fertilizer spreaders designed for self-propelled chassis’ and trucks with the BBI MagnaSpread line. Salford acquired BBI Spreaders in October 2014.

The new mounted spreader models are designed ag retailers, custom operators and large scale farms using self-propelled spreaders rather than pull-type equipment.

BBI MagnaSpread equipment is the company’s premiere hydraulic spinner spreader models designed for precision application on a wide array of farm sizes and types. MagnaSpread mounted units will have near universal compatibility so that they may be paired with high clearance sprayer chassis, floater spreader chassis and agricultural trucks.

“Whether you’re driving a floater chassis, high-clearance chassis or ag truck, MagnaSpread unit mount options will maximize your total application investment with the most efficient and widest driving intervals, as well as the most versatile and advanced spinner systems available in the North America,” says Lee Kilpatrick, Sales Manager at Salford Group.

The MagnaSpread Mounted models are outfitted with the same technology and options available in Salford’s pull type BBI MagnaSpread units including:

  • the new section control system for left/right shut-off according to prescription maps
  • the new Javelin spinner option capable of applying Urea in a 120 foot driving interval
  • bolt on spinner decks that allow for one spreader body to switch between the purpose built Javelin spinners, or the extremely versatile MagnaSpread spinner systems, designed for an 80 foot driving interval with fertilizer and a 60 foot driving interval with lime.

MagnaSpread2 and MagnSpread3 hoppers are also available for self-propelled systems, allowing producers to spread variable rate, custom blends of two or three dry products in one pass.

All of Salford’s BBI MagnaSpread models also come standard with the company’s proprietary Binary Manifold system. The BBI Binary Manifold adapts the spreaders hydraulic spinner and chain drives to almost any precision control package on the market today allowing producers to choose the precision ag controls they’re familiar with or keep their existing system.

Salford’s BBI division has put over 20 years of experience into MagnaSpread.
