Flail Side Spreaders Features

Thanks to the specially designed Start-up flails and longer barrel, the Abbey Machinery Flail Side Spreaders requires lower power to run, even in the toughest conditions. 

The unique strong construction of the loading door allows opening and closing of the door from the tractor seat to give easy loading access and ideal spread pattern. The door is strengthened with baffles providing quality construction and maximum support to the machine.


The new and improved chassis design gives optimum strength to the drum, reducing vibration and resulting in the strongest side spreader on the market.




The rotor is extremely robust to ensure long life with low maintenance. Rotors on all models are made from seamless tubing ensuring long life and free from vibration. The rotor is constructed from heavy duty round tubing on all models.




The chain system is extremely robust to ensure long life with low maintenance. Chains are fitted with heavy duty replaceable heads and plates and range from sizes of 28” x 3/8” up to 38” x ½ inch. The chains are specifically placed along the heavy duty rotor for accuracy of spread pattern and ease of start-up when full. On the 2070, 2090, 2100, 2250 and 2550 models they are placed in a spiral dimension giving perfect results. 




The proven and dependable standard 1¼ inch drive chain transfers power to the rotor on smaller models in the range. All drive line sprockets are standard with splined centres for ease of fitting

Each of the two bearings are supported with reinforced fabrication to ensure the longevity of the machine. Both ends of the bearing are reinforced with protective caps to prevent contamination of the bearing.

To enable easy cleaning Abbey Machinery fit as standard 6” drain outlets to all their side spreaders. This facilitates ease of cleaning.


The 2250 and 2550 models Duplex Chain is driven by the high strength 13/4 inch 6 spline input PTO shaft offering strength and Durability.
