Grasshopper--The Optimal Mechanical Spreader for Tight Rows and Turf

With high ground clearance, the five-ton Grasshopper from BBI makes medicum-capacity top dressings and row cropping a cinch. Grasshopper utilizes flotation tires to minimize soil compaction along its path, and features a 16-inch stainless steel mesh chain that automatically adjusts spread rate with your travel speed. 

As with all BBI Spreaders, Grasshopper features BBI's proprietary spread system, consistently generating flatter, wider spread patterns in its wake.  Grasshopper is built to last, with UHMW paint and stainless steel construction that minimize corrosion and maximize the unit's life on the farm, golf course, and other turf management environments. 

This great spreader for medium-capacity jobs features PTO or hydraulic-controlled spinners, and spinner motors sit above the chemical, resulting in extended motor life.
