The rotating chains empty the spreader from both ends. By using a suitable gear and throttle speed, it is possible to achieve an even spread and vary the rate of application. A great variety of manure and compost types can be spread using this machine. The roto spreader is mounted on wide flotation tyres to minimize soil damage in wet conditions and is suitable for most tractors in the 18 to 60HP range. A low centre of gravity ensures maximum stability on slopes and ease of loading weather mechanically or by hand.

For making a manure or compost heap the rotary discharge action allows the cylinder to discharge its contents directly onto a heap up to two meters high, a trailer can only tip onto the ground requiring the material to be moved again to make a heap or clamp. The roto spreader can do this in one operation and is also able to top up the heap after the material has settled.
The heavy drawbar and strong screw allows the spreader to be left loaded without the tractor connected.
