Exmark Spreader-Sprayer Increases Productivity and Profitability
Fingertip controls enable operators do more with each pass
BEATRICE, NEB.(October 21, 2015) — The new Exmark Spreader-Sprayer introduces a number of innovations that make it easier to use and more productive for lawn care professionals, including Lean-to-Steer controls, which give the operator one-handed control of steering and forward or reverse speed.
When combined with the intuitive control layout, the Lean-to-Steer controls free the operator’s other hand to manage spread or spray system controls, or perform spot spraying with the easy-to-access spray wand.
Exmark Director of Marketing, Daryn Walters, said the Spreader-Sprayer was designed to raise the bar in a number of important areas.
“The innovations the Exmark Spreader-Sprayer introduces to the market were driven by the lawn care professionals using our machines every day. From ergonomics, to control location, to innovations to the spray and spread systems, we listened to the feedback of our customers and evolved our product to the point it’s at today.”
Exmark designed the spray system for maximum versatility, with selectable narrow (up to 5.5 feet) and wide (up to 11 feet) spray nozzles. Dual induction nozzles inside the tank provide aggressive agitation of spray mixtures to keep materials in suspension and deliver maximum spray consistency, even when using wettable powders.
A 20-gallon tank includes graduation marks for easy mixing of materials. Designed to be easy to fill and drain, the tank features a wide-fill mouth. Deeply padded knee bolsters surround the operator on three sides to increase stability, control and comfort.
The Spyker spreader system is well known for consistent performance and ease of use. Fingertip placement of spreader controls makes it easy to change the lateral adjustment of the spread pattern from the operator position, on the go. Exmark developed an innovative controller for the pump and spinner motor that gives the operator control of spinner speed (broadcast width of four to 22 feet) and provides operational alerts for the system. In addition, the operator can lock the spinner speed adjustment to minimize unintended adjustments.
The 175-pound capacity hopper is supplemented by the ability to carry an extra 50-pounds of bagged material on top of the tank. Exmark includes a soft hopper cover to protect material in the hopper from moisture during transport.
Exmark designed its Spreader-Sprayer for long-term durability with a Subaru EX27 commercial engine, corrosion-resistant stainless steel mainframe and powder coated control tower. The stainless steel operator platform includes isolation mounts for a more comfortable ride, and the platform locks in the up position for storage or transport.
