Manual spreader for seeds, fertiliser, gritting salt, oil absorbers, cleaning agents, pelletised lime, bird, seed, wildlife feed, sand etc.. The integral agitator ensures even distribution onto the steadily turning spreading disc driven by the manual crank. Up to 9 kg of granulated material can be applied where specifically required, even on difficult to reach terrain – for example where a wheeled device would be unsuitable. The spreader is carried in front of the body by means of an individually adjustable strap. The large filler opening makes filling easy, whilst the large screw top protects users from harmful dust.
