Construction Equipment Guide

Compact equipment operators needing to seed, fertilize or spread sand and salt on driveways, sidewalks and parking lots in the winter can use spreader attachments from Bobcat Company, a business of Ingersoll Rand.

The Bobcat SP5 spreader attachment, which has a 5.75-cu. ft. (4.4 cu m) hopper that can be loaded from the back of a dump truck, can spread virtually any dry, free-flowing granular material quickly and easily. The spreader can be used to spread seed and fertilizer for lawn care, sand and salt for winter maintenance.

The SP5 spreader provides a weather-tight, variable-speed 12-volt DC motor that allows the operator to vary spreading patterns from 4 to 40 ft. (1.2 to 12 m). The spinner wheel rpm is regulated from the operator’s seat by a rotary dial mounted in the loader cab.

An optional truck mounting kit allows for mounting the spreader to a pickup truck, instead of a loader. Other optional equipment includes an adjustable deflector, gate assembly kit and vibrator kit.

The SP12 spreader attachment is specially designed for use on the Toolcat 5600 utility work machine. With a 0.5 yd. (0.45 m) capacity hopper, the corrosion-proof, all-poly unit mounts in the cargo box. A dash-mounted control adjusts the auger and spinner to spread material from 5 to 40 ft. (1.5 to 12 m).
