Stoltzfus Spreaders Expands REDHAWKTM Ground Drive Lime and Fertilizer Spreader Line with 10-Ton Model

Stoltzfus Spreaders, which introduced the wet lime spreader in 1976, has added a 10-ton version (CU-100) to its REDHAWKTM ground driven line of multi-use agricultural spreaders, which includes four-, five- and eight-ton models.

The CU-100 is designed for medium to large farms, said Bernard Hershberger, owner and president of Stoltzfus Spreaders. “Our ground-driven spreaders are designed for multi-use application. They are engineered to break out heavy stockpiled lime loads, while still having the precision to spread fertilizer” he said.

The new 10-ton Stoltzfus ground driven lime spreader has a 212- cubic-foot hopper. The 53-degree side slopes, 24-inch carbon steel slat-style drag chain and engineered drop pan work in combination to prevent bridging, allowing consistent material flow for true multi- purpose spreading.

Hershberger said the Stoltzfus CU-100 has the industry’s only fully welded Unibody construction. Its heavy-duty structural tube steel frame and rugged walking beam suspension easily handles stresses from 10-ton loads. The large 21.5L 14-ply tires offer high flotation and smooth rolling on rough terrain.

The dual contact press wheel, hydraulically raised and lowered, delivers the power to break out packed damp lime loads. Hydraulically powered twin 24-inch, 7-gauge steel spinners are top driven, isolating the drives from corrosive chemicals and the shock of material pounding on their disks.

The Stoltzfus CU-100 is constructed from CorTen weatherizing steel, and is available in 304 stainless steel. Options include tarps, lights, corner pockets and the Stoltzfus exclusive material shredder.

“High application rates of cohesive materials can result in large chunks falling onto the spinners. The shredder breaks down the chunks for an even spread pattern and less wear on the spinners” added Hershberger.

(1.9 L) reservoir for improved visibility in wet weather or muddy conditions.

The switch allowing for opening and tilting the front window was enhanced for increased reliability.

The Can-am Defender XT Cab features full doors to enclose the occupants within the cab. The comfortable and spacious cabin also offers the occupants protection from the elements an, with an integrated heater, warmth in cool regions.

A new rear glass window uses new stiffer rear panel mounting points for easier operation when opening it. The sliding opening on the rear window allows for airflow through the cab on warm days and provides quick access to items in the cargo bed.

The factory-installed, integrated heater system has been optimized for better performance in the cold and for use during other seasons as well. New isolating foam ensures a true 100 percent seal. When the heater is set to “cool,” new, one-way valves on the heater prevent coolant from circulating. Additionally, the cooling routing was reconfigured and larger routing components were used to expand the kit’s overall heating capacity.

A durable, heavy-duty plastic roof with an integrated liner protects the occupants from elements while giving the Defender XT Cab units a custom appearance and unbeatable fit-and-finish. A new standard dome light helps illuminate the cab during low-light situations.
