The XCEL rear discharge spreader provides precision manure spreading management. Our unique technology of the shredding rotor and spinning discs provide a precise application of manure. The spreading width of the XCEL is 24 metres, based on material. It has a capacity of 12 tonnes, and the load can be spread in approximately 3 minutes.

Our unique patented and proven chain and disc spreading achieves better consistency and much greater widths than a standard vertical auger spreader. The XCEL uses two high strength marine chains to convey the manure towards the rear beater. This hydraulically driven floor complete with box iron slats provides a constant flow of
manure to the shredding rotor.
Capable of handling a wider range of manures than vertical auger spreaders, our unique rotor shreds and spreads manure in a more intensive manner to ensure a faster uptake in crop nutrition, and a reduction in time to grazing.
22 heavy duty marine chains along with Hardox flail heads are rotating in excess of 220rpm to intensive shred the manure. A unique feature of our chain rotor is that it allows the passage of foreign objects through the rotor. Foreign objects are more likely to cause serious damage to fixed rotor spreaders.
The enclosed Hardox hood over the rotor ensures that the manure is delivered directly to the spinning vanes. The high velocity and shredded nature of the manure ensures an even and consistent pattern in excess of 24 metres. The Hardox hood is fitted with an adjustable canopy for accurate placement of the manure onto the discs.
The XCEL is packed with features to ensure that it can cope with any manure spreading. To begin spreading, the wide angle PTO is engaged at 1000rpm to drive the rear discs and rotor. A galvanised reinforced slurry door is set to the desired height depending on the material to be spread. The slurry door height is easily viewed with an indicator on the front of the spreader. It can be raised and lowered via a hydraulic spool as required.
The two floor chains and slatted floor convey the manure to the shredding rotor. The floor chains are manually tensioned from the front of the spreader. The double floor chain further eliminates the risk of bridging as can occur with four chain setups. The floor speed can also be hydraulically controlled from the cab.
The manure is shredded through the rotor and placed onto the spinning discs via the adjustable canopy. The large diameter spinning discs are rotating in excess of 500rpm and this additional speed helps to spread the manure in excess of 24 metres. The vanes on the discs are also adjustable to allow varying spreading patterns depending on the material to be spread. The discs are driven via a single piece gearbox. The precise gearbox casting allows perfect alignment of the driveline. All gearboxes are rated for 200HP.

The XCEL spreader is fitted standard with 580/70 R32 tyres. For lower ground compaction the 650/75 R32 is a popular option. This will however impact on the overall width of the spreader.

The XCEL can be fitted with an independent weighing system to
accurately measure weight. A Digi-Star weighing system complete
with a GT 400 display can display total loaded weights. This allows
the operator to know exactly what each load is carrying.
RDS iSOCAN Apollo
The RDS Apollo system is an accurate regulation and monitoring of the spreading system. The Apollo can ensure the correct application rate irrespective of changes in forward speed and product density. The application rate is set into the control system and your GPS (not provided) ensures that the spreader is applying the correct amount of manure per acre.

The XCEL spreader is fitted with hydraulic braking as standard. For increased stopping power on the road between jobs, air over hydraulic braking can be fitted. This combination of both air and hydraulic braking allows the spreader to be used with any tractor.
