Loftness recently introduced the new FB1210 12-ton fertilizer spreader and L1230 12-ton lime/fertilizer spreader to its FertiLogix line of products. The spreaders are variable rate ready with hydraulic-driven conveyors and spinners for precision application.
Both models feature dual stainless-steel spinners that produce a highly consistent spread pattern. The 409 stainless-steel hoppers are smooth with 50-degree slopes, minimal flat surfaces and no internal gussets or plates to accumulate material. This results in a much cleaner system that maximizes material flow and helps prevent corrosion. They also have a 41-inch frame clearance and variable tread width from 80 to 120 inches (90- to 152-inch wheel spacing optional) for in-season applications in row crops.
The FB1210 fertilizer spreader offers a 40- to 90-foot spread width. It includes dual stainless-steel conveyor chains with optional two-section control for independent adjustment of the right and left sections. The L1230 lime spreader features a 24-inch belt-over-chain conveyor design that is ideal for handling
Other standard features on both spreaders include 380/90-R46 tires and an adjustable hitch. Options include an automatically controlled spinner drive, integral scale, steerable hitch, dual wheels, multiple tire choices and a roll tarp.
