Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the difference between the Economy and the Deluxe units?

  • The Deluxe units have a double beater system that locks the beaters out when the dispensing gate is closed.
  • The Economy units have a single beater that is turning all the time.
  • The Deluxe units have larger wheels which offer you almost double the bottom clearance.
  • The Deluxe units also have an adjustable ball or pin hook up.
  • The Deluxe units are also manufactured with heavier gage steel.

Q: What is the advantage of the lock out system?

  • With the lock out system you eliminate the possibility of your lime bridging.

Q: What is bridging?

  • All of Ground Busters Drop Lime Spreaders are designed to spread pulverized lime either from a bag or ag lime from your local quarry. Ag lime can sometimes be damp. With damp lime the Economy units beaters continually turn can cause a bridge where the lime will not dispense when you open the gate.

Q: I like the Economy unit but is there anything I can do to reduce the risk of bridging?

  • Absolutely there are a few precautions you can take to reduce your risk of bridging.
  • Use only bag lime; bridging will not occur with bag lime because it is so dry.
  • When using Ag lime tell your supplier you are using a drop lime spreader and need dry/clean lime.
  • When delivered place ag lime as close as possible to where you plan to spread, shorten your distance from loading point to spreading location.
  • Store all lime in a dry location, if outdoors be sure to tarp the bottom as well as the top.
  • If bridging should occur travel over rough ground with dispensing gate full open to help jar loose the lime.

Q: Can I pick up my lime spreader in a pick-up truck?

  • If your pick-up is a full size truck most of the Ground Buster Spreaders can fit. Here are the dimensions when on a shipping skid: (when removed from skid both width and height will be reduced)
