J-Pyott & Associates | Military Adjustable Drag A Box Spreader

Military Grade Adjustable Width Spreader

The Military Grade (MG) Spreader is available in adjustable width versions. The smallest option, MG4-6, goes from a minimum width of 4 ft and expands to a maximum width of 6 ft. The largest option, MG7-12, goes from a minimum width of 7 ft and expands to a maximum width of 12 ft. In addition to the 4-6 and the 7-12 we also have the MG5-8 (5ft.-8ft.) and MG6-10 (6ft.-10ft.). The width adjustment can be performed without using any tools by loosening T-handle nuts and cranking 2000 LB screw jacks until the material spreader is at the width needed.

The width of each side can be adjusted independently so that the material being spread can be offset to one side relative to the truck (spread a road and the shoulder while the truck is still on the road).

The military grade spreader has a narrow screed that heats up very quickly and stays hot longer. Important qualities to consider when spreading asphalt in early spring or late fall or if you are located in northern climates.

Just like tracks on a bulldozer, the extra-large skids on a Military Grade Spreader provide a low ground pressure. This helps when spreading on soft ground such as gravel or dirt that has not been compacted.
