How wide do they spread?

Between 10 to 52 metres, depending on the material, the relative density and moisture content. See: Kondinin Test for Urea & Lime results


Why should I buy a Landaco in preference to another brand?

Most importantly they will spread just about any type of material evenly and to wide width when needed, reducing time, compaction and fuel.

Made from heavy gauge 4-6mm folded steel, Landaco spreaders are extremely robust, and engineered to tolerate weight and operational demands well in excess of their capacity. For example, the T80 (8 tonne) spreader is built with a rated 12 tonne capacity 10 stud BPW axle.

The more efficient hydraulic spinners are standard on Landaco spreaders, not an optional extra.

Landaco spreaders are very simple to operate, maintenance is minimal with only six grease points, and by using hydraulic drive to the spinners and avoiding the use of shafts and various “V” belts, there is no need to keep replacing bearings and belts, or have slippage and thus irregular spread patterns.


What other features do they have?

Many farmers like the idea that they can use their spreader as a field bin. Just two bolts either end of the spinner deck and it can be removed, and if fitted with the hydraulic overdrive into the transmission, the driver can back up to a hopper and from the cabin quickly do a stationary unload of contents.

Unobstructed flow of material from the rear is achieved through an 800mm wide rear door (with an automatic option), opening to a height of 400mm, and delivering material directly onto the larger than usual 800mm diameter twin dished spinners.

An attachment can be fitted to limit spreading to just below the drip line on vineyards or orchards etc.


How long have Landaco been making spreaders?

Over 30 years.


Where are Landaco spreaders manufactured?

Landaco spreaders are designed and manufactured in Australia. Our factory and offices are located in Wagga Wagga, NSW.


I have heard that without chains you can get bridging of material or belt slip?

Not so. Our belts are an 800mm wide endless web laminate, and cleated PVC laminated belts are used on all Agrispread models. The Maxispread units and fitted with up to 3 ply rubber conveyors. Self-cleaning tracking rollers maintain line, and the entire conveyor travels on a bed of rollers at intervals of 130mm, thus eliminating any possibility of bridging.


Is it easy to calibrate spreading rates?

Yes. A quick-set chart is located on the back of the spreader, and the rear door is opened to the appropriate height. In addition, we provide customised software which allows the operator to enter the rate required, the material being spread, and will automatically advise how high the rear door should be opened.


Are there any exposed gears or sprockets?

No. The reduction gearbox is sealed to avoid contamination, and the sprockets are pre-packed in a bed of grease.


What paint is used?

After all components are individually grit blasted, a high grade “2 Pack” enamel paint is applied to ensure the best protection and a high lustre.


What is the warranty?

Warranty is 24 months (2 years) on all Maxispreads and 12 months (1 year) on all Agrispreads.
