Our patented WideSpin™ technology gave superintendents the freedom to accomplish the specific topdressing programs they needed. And now, with the new WideSpin™ 1550, we’ve taken topdressing control and precision to unprecedented levels—all while making operation even easier. Everything is easily adjustable for maximum control—belt speed, spinner speed, spinner angle and metering gate. And specially designed twin spinners provide a consistent spread, from superlight to heavy, and everything in between.

With the WideSpin 1550, we’re laying down a whole new standard in topdressing control and precision. The WideSpin 1550 features advanced technology that puts you in complete control of your topdressing program. You’ll get the application rates you want, when you need them…without leaving the seat.

  • New patented controller allows you to calculate your rates while also giving you a wider range of rates to choose from. Lock in your favorites using the controller’s four presets.
  • New hydraulic system and spinner design makes the patented WideSpin technology even more versatile while delivering a consistent, even spread. Go from a new, superlight application to heavy, and everything in between.
  • Get the exact spread you want as you move from greens to approaches to tees, at the push of a button.
  • Know your application rates, calculate the rates you want, and determine how much material you need to budget — all for the first time ever with our on-board calculator. 
  • Reduce the number of passes and decrease traffic on your greens with WideSpin edge-to-edge applications.
  • Drive topdressing down into the turf canopy by adjusting the spinner angle, minimizing the need for brushing and eliminating variations in moisture content (spreads the same wet or dry).
  • Refill the hopper faster and with less spillage — galvanized hopper has 20% greater capacity and wider opening fits an 80” bucket.
