Hydraulic or two-speed apron drives
The hydraulic apron drive, standard on the MS1256 and MS1266 (optional on all other Frontier™ heavy-duty models), provides versatile load movement with variable speeds. The two-speed apron drive includes low-speed, high-speed, and cleanout modes.
Better cutting coverage and versatile spreading action
With one of the largest beaters on the market, 73.7 cm (29 in.) in diameter, the MS12 Series Spreaders cover more area from top to bottom to handle big loads with ease.
Faster tip-speed provides a wide uniform spread. Paddle assemblies match the material: blunt for wide spread patterns and sharp, ripper-type paddles for more aggressive action.
Built rugged for years of dependable service
Spreader boxes are constructed of corrosion-resistant, galvanized steel to ensure long life.
The entire spreader box is poly-bonded to marine-type plywood for easy cleaning and minimal freeze up, reducing the amount of torque needed to move heavier loads.
Hydraulic end gate
The hydraulic end gate helps contain high-moisture loads and prevents spillage during transport (optional on the MS1223 and MS1227 and standard on all other heavy-duty models).
Rugged, heavy-duty construction
Frontier™ MS12 Series Spreaders feature massive all-welded frames, heavy-duty floors, and side stakes with wrap-around, steel-front corners.
Rear main beater side panels are welded to durable, 12.7-cm (5-in.), U-channel side members for extra strength and reliability.
Field-installed top beater kits for manure spreaders
The top beater attaches above the rear beater and provides more uniform spreading in heaped and heavily matted material. The top beater may be used with hydraulic endgate or rear pan.
Field-installed rear pan kit for MS11, MS11G, MS12, and MS14 Manure Spreaders
Rear pan field-installation kits help to hold in loose and semi-liquid materials. The rear pan and hydraulic endgate may be used together.
Hydraulic conversion kits for MS11 and MS12 Series Manure Spreaders
For the first kit listed, the hydraulic end gate hydraulically raises and lowers to help keep loose and semi-liquid material in the spreader during transport and loading on the MS11 Series Manure Spreaders.
For the second kit, the variable-speed hydraulic drive with four-hose hookup allows the end gate and apron to work independently on the MS12 Series Manure Spreaders. This conversion kit requires two selective control valves (SCVs).
For the third kit, the variable-speed hydraulic drive with two-hose hookup allows the apron chain to begin moving once the end ate is fully raised on the MS12 Series Manure Spreaders. This kit requires only one SCV.
For the fourth kit, the electric variable-speed hydraulic apron control allows control of the apron speed to be done from the operator’s station with electric controls versus manually on the MS12 Series Manure Spreaders.
