Plastic Blades For Spinner Spreaders
"The blades are molded from a high-tech plastic polymer and are abrasion and impact-resistant so fertilizer chunks won't damage them," says spokesman Joey Lamb. "They won't rust or corrode and will out-wear steel blades. The close tolerances they're manufactured to results in a very consistent blade angle. As a result, you don't have to Štune' blades or change them nearly as often as with metal blades. We've had people broadcast nearly 300 tons of lime and fertilizer with our blades without having to change the blade angle at all."
The blades sell for about $7 apiece.
