Fertiliser spreader: General Information
The fertiliser spreader was first invented in 1899 by Oppenheim and Henry Synck. It is farm equipment used to dispense fertiliser on fields. When procuring one, the most crucial factor to consider is the size of your lawn. A hand spreader for example is suitable to deal with a small lawn while a larger lawn does require a fertiliser spreader that evenly distributes the amount of fertiliser.
Operating a fertiliser spreader
While operating the fertiliser spreader, you should follow the instructions set by the manufacturer. They include when to apply the fertiliser, settings in place before application, the amount to use and the procedure to follow after application. The spreader is usually attached to a tractor. A hopper resembling the shape of a cone is in place to facilitate the movement of the fertiliser through the cone where another attachment resembling a fan blade that is rotating, disperses the fertiliser to the land.
