Complementing the SP3700 series Spreaders, which feature a proven apron drive unloading system, Massey Ferguson® has introduced the new HY3700 Hydraulic Push spreaders and the VB3700 Series, which features a V-bottom and side discharge.

“For those who prefer a spreader with a hydraulic push unloading system, we offer two models in the HY Series,” says Michael Fiorenza, AGCO product marketing specialist for manure spreaders and hay equipment. “Both models are available with a choice of horizontal or vertical beaters, giving customers four different options,” he adds, noting that vertical beaters tend to provide more material contact and a wider spread pattern.

All hydraulic push models also utilize solid, virgin-grade poly panels, with a UV inhibitor on the floor and sides to reduce friction and prevent material from freezing to the box. “Hydraulic variable-speed control is also standard for precise control of application rates,” Fiorenza adds.

For those who prefer a side-discharge machine that can handle a mix of liquids and solids, Massey Ferguson offers the VB3700 Series in a choice of four sizes, featuring an adjustable, heavy-duty expeller system with side fins to control drift and a poly-lined fine spread pan, which provides a better spread pattern while preventing liquids from leaking onto the road. A quick-release feature provides easy clean-out to prevent freezing.

“The manual-adjusted top expeller shield sets the distance of the spread pattern, while the hydraulic cylinder allows the operator to easily adjust the rate of application from the tractor seat,” Fiorenza explains. “In the meantime, reversible, bolt-on square-tooth paddles shred and rip material for an even spread pattern.”

Other standard features on the VB3700 Series include an automatic chain oiler system, highway lighting and remote grease system.
