With a wide and consistent spread pattern, as well as unloading speeds from 0-15.21 feet per minute, the HR 880 is truly innovative and efficient. Heavy-duty axles with lubricated wheel bearings allow the spreader to easily accommodate high volumes. Additionally, a vertically-adjustable articulating implement hitch smoothly pulls weights exceeding 180,000 pounds. Two-stage hydraulic push technology carries the front portion of the load which greatly reduces compaction optimizing your spread pattern. The aggressively contoured, double curve hydraulic ram fits snugly into the vertical beaters providing optimal clean-out at the end of the load!
