The BBI Cricket Ag and Turf is a 2-3 ton (64 cubic feet struck) fertilizer and lime spreader designed for precision dry material application. The Cricket Ag and Turf provides an affordable and dependable option to meet those needs. Cricket Ag and Turf requires only a 30-40 horsepower tractor to pull it. With a narrow wheel track width, it can be maneuvered through narrow paths. Wide flotation tires are standard to minimize compaction. A standard 16” stainless steel mesh chain for fertilizer or lime is powered by a ground wheel drive. The spinners are powered by a PTO shaft and can also be powered by tractor supplied hydraulics. Built on a heavy duty 12,000 lb. axle, The Cricket effectively manages the rough terrain it may encounter.
