Features

Frame Clearance
A 44-inch frame clearance for in-season applications allows operators to spoon-feed nutrients as the crop needs them.

Spread Pattern
Dual stainless steel spinners deliver a total overlapping trapezoidal pattern of up to 90 feet with an optional hydraulic drive. The standard 540 rpm PTO spinner drive produces a 50-foot pattern, as does the optional 540/1,000 rpm PTO drive.

Adjustable Tread Width
The RC800 includes a variable tread width from 80 to 120 inches to accommodate virtually any row spacing.

Obstruction Free Interior
The hopper is smooth with minimal flat surfaces and no internal gussets or plates to accumulate fertilizer. This results in a much cleaner system that helps prevent corrosion.

Mechanical Apron Drive
A mechanically driven drive eliminates the slippage problems of competitive friction wheel drives. They can also be equipped with an optional hydraulic conveyor drive for variable rate applications.

Simple Bearing Design
One bearing part number for all driveline components on the machine greatly simplifies the maintenance and replacement process.

Split Sprocket
Allows for easy in-field replacement of worn sprockets without removal of the wheel.

Adjustable Hitch
The hitch has a moveable clevis to accommodate a wider range of drawbar heights, and allows for leveling of the spreader. The hitch is also integral to the frame, while the suspension pulls from the hitch lowering the amount of frame stress.

Integral Lights
Sealed and rubber isolated lights are tucked neatly inside the frame.
