The AS150-T has adjustable feed plates to ensure accurate and precision spreading.

A large capacity spreader with adjustable feed plates for precision spreading is an entry in the Henty Machine of the Year Award.

The AS150-T, from Agrispread Australia, boasts a 15sqm capacity to give the grower plenty of volume to spread product at large rates.

The Agrispread system of adjustable feed plates ensures accurate and precision spreading.

The newly introduced Apollo II controller is variable rate technology ready with auto shut off and allows the operator to monitor and control spread rates from inside the cab.

The controller is ISOBUS compatible linking it to nearly all guidance systems.

Optional three-metre wheel spacing makes the spreader compatible with controlled traffic farming systems.

The easily managed interchangeable fertiliser to lime, manure and gypsum disc allows for a simple change between applications, while a high spec calibration kit gives the operator the ability to test for an even and accurate spread.

Standard features include load cells, hydraulic drive for auto calibrating, hydraulic brakes, hopper screen mesh, chains for product breakup, stainless steel fitting, roll tarp and flotation tyres.

It is available with options such as hydraulic folding curtains for spreading some products in windy conditions and a steerable axle.

A Feathers false door gives the spreader the ability to spread as low as 1kg/ha, such as for slug and snail bait, while achieving high accuracy.

Future models can be fitted with the Elmers transfer track system giving more flotation and reducing compaction.
