We’re Variable Rate Ready if You Are

The L1230 is equipped for variable rate applications. Whether you want to load a prescription or manually change rates on the go, it has everything you need to spread lime and fertilizer exactly where you want it.


Hydraulic Conveyor Drive

The hydraulic conveyor drive allows the conveyor speed to operate independently of the ground speed.

Controlled Spinner Drive

The controlled spinner drive works in conjunction with a speed sensor, allowing the operator to set the desired spinner speed from the cab to match the desired spread width. Simply enter the desired spinner speed, and the spinners will adjust automatically to the programmed speed.

Belt-Over-Chain Design

A 24-inch belt-over 88C chain design is ideal for providing a consistent flow of lime to the spinners, and also works well for fertilizer applications.

Dual Stainless-Steel Spinners

Dual stainless-steel spinners produce a consistent spread pattern from 20 to 60 feet wide for lime, or 40 to 90 feet wide for fertilizer.

41-Inch Frame Clearance

A 41-inch frame clearance allows the spreader to be used for in-season applications in row crops.

Adjustable Wheel Spacing

The wheels are adjustable from 80 to 120 inches wide to accommodate a variety of row spacings. 90- to 152-inch adjustable wheel spacing is optional.

Obstruction-Free Interior

The 409 stainless-steel hopper is smooth with a 50-degree slope, minimal flat surfaces and no internal gussets or plates to accumulate lime or fertilizer. This results in a much cleaner system that maximizes material flow and helps prevent corrosion.

Two-Bearing Design

Only two bearing part numbers for all driveline components on the machine greatly simplifies the maintenance and replacement process.

Adjustable Hitch

The hitch has a moveable clevis to accommodate a wider range of drawbar heights, and allows for leveling of the spreader. The hitch is also integral to the frame, while the suspension pulls from the hitch to lower the amount of frame stress.

Wheel/Tire Options

A variety of wheel and tire options are available, including duals.

Optional Integral Scale

Closely monitor application rates and the amount of material remaining in the hopper with the integral four-point scale option.

Optional Roll Tarp

An optional roll tarp can be installed to protect material within the hopper from weather elements.

Optional Steerable Hitch

A steerable hitch provides maximum control of the spreader on sidehills and turns.
