The Hi-Spec XCEL 1250 spreader has being extensively tested on Irish farms over the last three years. The main advantage over other spreaders in the market is its ability to handle foreign objects in the manure (e.g. stones, cement blocks, fencing stakes etc.) without any damage to the machine.
The spreading width of the machine is in excess of 18 metres with most materials. The XCEL spreader has a capacity of 12 tons and requires a tractor with 100HP upwards. A 12 ton load can be spread in approximately 3-5 minutes.
The manure is shredded by 24 flails made from hard wearing HARDOX steel and are held on with one bolt each. The 24 flails guarantee a high throughput with optimum spreading of the manure. The flails are attached to the rotor shaft with marine chain which has a breaking capacity of 40 tons. The spreading is done by four shear bolt protected vanes mounted on two rotors which are placed underneath the flails.
