Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What kind of spreader do you use for lime?
A: The Agromatic Lime Master Pro is a 3-point tractor attachment used for applying hydrated lime to free stall beds, an ideal solution for barns using composted solids for bedding. It features a hydraulic dispensing arm that extends over the beds, applying lime to a 24” section of the stalls as the operator moves down the alley.
Q: Can you spread lime with a fertilizer spreader?
A: Yes, you can spread lime with a fertilizer spreader. However, it’s important to ensure that the spreader is suitable for handling the texture and weight of lime, which can be more challenging to spread evenly compared to typical fertilizers. Some fertilizer spreaders are designed to handle a range of materials, including both fertilizers and lime. It’s always a good idea to check the manufacturer’s recommendations for your specific spreader model to ensure compatibility and effective spreading.
Q: Can you use a broadcast spreader for lime?
A: Yes, you can use a broadcast spreader for spreading lime. Broadcast spreaders, also known as rotary spreaders, are well-suited for distributing lime over large areas. They work by flinging the lime outward in a broad pattern, which ensures even coverage. This method is particularly effective for applying lime to lawns or fields. However, it’s important to ensure the lime is dry and finely granulated to prevent clogging. Additionally, calibrating the spreader for the correct application rate is crucial to avoid under or over-liming the area. Always follow the lime product’s guidelines and the spreader manufacturer’s instructions for best results.
