5 cu ft Drop Spreader

The Professional’s Choice for Precision Spreading

Snow removal contractors, grounds crews on college campuses, and downtown municipalities are just a few examples of the many satisfied owners and operators of TerraKing 5 cu ft Drop Spreaders. For some, satisfaction comes from the ability of these spreaders to easily treat sidewalks with their compact 43-in. (109-cm) spread width and hefty 350-lb. (159-kg.) material-carrying capacity. For others, it’s about convenient adjustments, specifically the easy-to-use control box and the industry-exclusive six-position removable rotor tray.

No matter what feature fills your needs, durability always comes standard. Each spreader is built with rugged components, right from our production facility in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Starting with the hopper assembly, stainless steel is used to withstand years of spreading materials like salt and ice melt. To control the flow of material, the robust 2 ¾-in. (7-cm.) stainless-steel rotor uses segmented, welded teeth for precision spreading. The rotor’s chain-driven driveline is uncomplicated and shielded to enhance the spreader’s longevity in harsh conditions. Lastly, three styles of hitches constructed with black powder-coated steel ensure that the vehicle you’re spreading with has a stable, strong, and secure connection to the spreader.

Regardless of the vehicle that you’re using, spreader operation remains simple. The metering gate that lets material flow can easily be positioned in six different settings without tools to accommodate the granularity of the material that you’re spreading. These adjustments are made in ¼-in. (0.6 cm.) increments, ranging from closed to open 1½-in. (3.8-cm.). Once the gate is set, the weather-resistant control box provides you with fingertip operation of the spreader’s functionality. Turn the rotor on with the left rocker switch and then use the center dial knob to adjust its speed from 1.3 to 6 rpm. If the material that you’re spreading builds up, simply press the right rocker switch to pulse the vibrating motor mounted on the hopper to break clumps apart.

After use, cleanout and storage are straightforward. The removable rotor tray allows you to thoroughly clean all of the material out of the spreader to avoid unnecessary corrosion. Integrated with the hitch are two storage stands to keep the spreader safely upright and ready for attachment when you need it again.
