You have the option to either rent or buy a custom designed mulch spreader from Africa Biomass Company.
There are many different brands of mulch and compost spreaders on the market today. As a contracting company, ABC was not satisfied with the products on the market and in 2013 Africa Biomass Company build their first mulch spreader.
After more than 5 years of continually improving the design, Africa Biomass Company is very proud to announce that they have a few contracting teams in the field to spread chips, compost, mulch or straw in your orchard or vineyard.
Africa Biomass Company’s mulch spreaders spread material evenly and are adjustable to achieve the desired amount of material per hectare.
The 550 mm wide conveyor has a specific design that spreads mulch, assisted with a spinner to prevent blockages allow for even distribution of mulch.
This combination is quite productive, and patented design of ABC’s mulch spreader works so wonderfully in ABC’s fleet, that the company has decided to sell these mulch spreaders.
