Model 00CV - Cricket Vineyard Spreader
The BBI designed Cricket Vineyard Spreader provides an affordable and dependable tool for spreading fertilizer, lime and compost in your vineyard or orchard. Whether working as a Vineyard Spreader or Orchard Spreader, the 58” hopper allows it to clear low overhanging limbs. The reversible wheels allow a 50 or a 60 inch track to accommodate most vineyards. If spreading fertilizer, lime or compost in your vineyard or orchard, the BBI Cricket Spreader is the perfect solution.
A 2-3 ton fertilizer and lime spreader, the Cricket Vineyard is designed for precision dry material application in vineyards. The Cricket 50/60 provides an affordable and dependable option to meet those needs. Cricket requires only a 30-40 horsepower tractor to pull it. The 58” hopper clears most low hanging limbs in orchards and entrances to small buildings. With a narrow wheel track width, it can be maneuvered through narrow vineyards. Wide flotation tires are standard to minimize compaction. A standard 16” stainless steel mesh chain is powered by our exclusive hub powered hydraulic mechanism. The bed chain can be stopped and started at the end of each row by the tractor operator. The spinners are high torque plug-to-tractor hydraulic powered for precision controlled application. Built on a rigid, heavy duty 12,000 lb. axle, Cricket's manages the rough terrain it may encounter.
