CHICAGO — ECHO's new RB-80 and RB-100S turf application spreaders are designed to provide maximum productivity utilizing patented technology and high-quality components and are competitively priced.
With over 1,000 hours of testing, 3 plus years of testing and over 200 performance tests, the spreaders were made with end users and dealers in mind. The newest ECHO spreaders contain sturdy steel frames to resist corrosion and maintenance-free gear casing. In addition, the oversized hopper contains a patented auger to help aid clumps of material to flow. The large blade design pulls material towards the opening and is double fastened onto the gear cases to not come loose like many competitor “pin” designs.
The most innovative element is the unique spread pattern design. Unlike similar products, the four-pattern spread control mechanism comes standard on both models. Users have the option to use a standard full spread, a left pattern spread, a right pattern spread and a narrow spread for more precise applications. This is easily adjusted with the pull of two tabs located under the hopper.
Key applications for both models are intended for turf applications such as seeds, fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides but can also be used for other free-flowing materials such as ice melt. The RB-80 and RB-100S are both backed by ECHO’s standard 5 year consumer and 2 year commercial warranty.
