Fertilizer SpreadersFertilizer Spreaders, So Spring time is here and it’s time to get the grass to grow. If you are looking to get the best looking yard that you can then you really want to Fertilize your lawn. Like everything else grass needs to be fed as well to keep it healthy and green. For the most part there are two different types of fertilizers, inorganic and organic fertilizers which most prefer the organic. I’ll save going over the differences for another post as this is more about the spreaders.

There Are 2 Types of Fertilizer Spreaders

Like fertilizers there are also 2 categories types that the spreaders fall under. One being a PTO(Power Take Off) Spreader which means the spreader is connected to a tractors engine. PTO Spreaders can be turn on or off while in motion. The other type of spreader is a Manual Spreader also known as a Push or Pull-Behind Spreader. Manual Fertilizer Spreaders are powered by the movement of the wheels. There for when a manual fertilizer spreader is in motion it’s spreading fertilizer and only stops spreading when the spreaders movement stops.

Benefits of A PTO Fertilizer Spreader

PTO Fertilizer Spreaders in most cases are lager and can carry more fertilizer which can save you a good bit of time from loading more. Because they are powered by a tractors engine they also tend to have a better spreading mechanisms and more quality built. As mentioned earlier PTO spreaders can be turned off while still in motion this can save fertilizer around turns or when moving over areas that don’t require fertilizing . Of course by saving fertilizer you’ll be saving money and fertilizer can get very expensive. On the other end PTO Fertilizers can sometimes cost more to purchase.

Benefits of Manual Spreader

If you have a small area that you need to fertilize then you might want to look into the Manual Fertilizer Spreaders. Manual spreaders can a spreader that you walk behind and push or one that you attach to an ATV, small tractor, or even certain mowers. You’ll be able to get the smaller manual spreaders in tighter spots. Even though manual spreaders are powered by the motion of the wheels they do have a feed gate that can be closed to save fertilizer when not needed to spread. Of course it’s not as convenient as a PTO spreader if you are on a tractor.

    Does semi hydroponics technique enable orchids to grow healthily? And why is it so, then? What are the scientific exanilatpons?|I am new and have never grown with hydroponics before. I have been studding them and a water culture system sounds like the easiest to get started on. Will tomatoes and peppers grow in a water culture setup or should I try something else?

    Just looking at the Farm Maxx S70 Pull Type Spreader and been considering getting one of these as I like the idea that I can pull it with my 4 Wheeler. I’m wondering how much does it tilt when hooked up to an ATV and would that cause any clogs or hick-ups with the spreader?
