The Hydraulic Spreader (HS8) attachment is Bobcat’s first hydraulic spreader. The self-loading hopper on the HS8 has an open top and can be used as a bucket, allowing an operator to efficiently fill the spreader from a pile rather than pour material into the top. With an 8 cubic foot hopper, the spread pattern is controlled by a hydraulic motor and three material flow gates that spread from 18 to 28 feet. The three individual gates, located on the hopper, maintain the rate of material spread.
- Hopper Grate: Filters unwanted debris from spread material.
- Hydraulic System: Spread pattern controlled by hydraulic motor that gives spread pattern of 18 to 28 feet.
- Self-Loading Hopper: Allows the operator to use the hopper as a bucket, filling the spreader from a pile. Quickly and efficiently reload the spreading material into the hopper for big parking lot or road coverage jobs.
