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.
  • New hopper has 20% greater capacity and the widest opening in the industry—you’ll refill faster and spill a lot less when you do.
