Low Profile
At only 56.4 inches tall, the OS170 leads the industry with its low profile, allowing it to easily travel under tree branches. Despite the lower profile, the spreader has one of the highest capacities with the ability to carry up to 80 cubic feet of material.

Narrow Width
With a hopper width of 48.7 inches and tire width of only 50.1 inches, the OS170 can operate efficiently in some of the narrowest spaced plantings.

Mechanical Apron Drive
The OS170 comes standard with a mechanical apron drive with hydraulic shut-off. It can also be equipped with a rope pull shut-off, or both hydraulic and rope shut-off.

Stainless Steel Construction
The hopper is constructed of 409 painted stainless steel for superior corrosion resistance. All other areas exposed to continuous fertilizer contact are made from stainless steel as well, such as the 304 stainless steel conveyor chain.

Consistent Spread Pattern
Dual stainless steel spinners produce a consistent spread pattern up to 25 feet wide on the standard model. A 40-foot spread width is optional.

Adjustable Hitch
The hitch has an adjustable clevis to accommodate a wider range of drawbar heights, and allows for leveling of the spreader.
