Twin dynamically balanced vertical augers – HD Mk2

Twin 865mm diameter dynamically balanced vertical augers have flights laser cut from heat treated BORON steel to improve strength and service life. 20mm thick reversible hardened cutters manufactured using BORON steel are bolted and supported along back edge, shred products leaving a wide and even spread. Two fixed position BORON steel bottom blades per auger give wider spread widths of materials that are either fine or wet

Built in extension sides 1095mm

The large extensions are standard on 175 offering great capacity, spreader design load capacity should be checked relative to the density of the material to be carried

Full width floor slats – MK2 HD

Full width floor slats clear the entire floor area, eliminating the possibility of bridging, a problem sometimes encountered with multi chain and slat floor systems. The “socket fit” design allows for easy maintenance which can be carried out in the field, it also allows the chain to pull straight should a slat become bent

Floor chains – 20mm

Grade 80, 20mm heavy duty chains are drawn by high tensile sprockets. Sprockets are fitted to the front floor shaft as well as the driven rear shaft, ensuring perfect alignment and timing of the chains, which, in turn makes for a more reliable floor drive.  Each chain has a 50 tonne breaking certificate

Heavy Duty T80 Drive line

The robust one piece gearbox houses internal gear sets unique to Bunnings in order to ensure that auger speeds are optimised to achieve excellent spread patterns. They are large in diameter with 54mm output shafts manufactured from heat treated steel. The precision machined castings ensure perfect alignment of all the driveline components

Adjustable blade position

The PTO drive line uses Heavy Duty T80 shafts with 1 ¾” splined connections suited for heavy, demanding materials

Floor drive gearbox RT800 TVA

The 800 series floor drive gearbox is hydraulically driven to ensure an even feed of material to the spreading mechanism at all times. With a reverse feature, any foreign object too large to pass through the beaters can be easily removed. An adjustable cross-line relief valve also delivers additional protection. The Widebody 380HD is fitted with 2 floor drive gearboxes as standard

Rubber cushion drive coupling

Especially developed to reduce shock loads to the auger drive gearbox, the rubber cushion arrangement located between the output shaft of the auger gearbox and the base of the auger contributes to the reliability and longevity of the machine

18 Tonne Sprung Drawbar
