Stoltzfus Spreaders debuted the new BMS-2020XL spreader Aug. 18-20 at Penn State University Ag Progress Days. The new spreader holds 20 tons of low-density materials and features a 700 cubic-foot hopper, 70 feet larger than comparable equipment.
The spreader’s 53-degree hopper side slopes, 30-inch slat-style drag chain and drop pan design prevent bridging, enabling correct and consistent material flow. A pair of twin-pinion, hydraulically driven gearboxes and carbon steel driveshaft double the power to break out loads and stop binding caused by extreme weights and varying materials.
The BMS-2020XL has a fully welded walking beam suspension with a structural steel tubular frame to handle 20-ton loads on both flat ground and hills. It’s fully welded unibody construction reduces flexing, cracking, joint stress and loosening. The spreader comes standard with self-contained hydraulics with a PTO-driven pump and a 65-gallon hydraulic oil tank, which eliminates the need for oil coolers.
