Reliable performance, accurate spreading

A versatile rear discharge spreader designed to handle all types of manures, composts and sludges. The Delilah 4000 series has twin vertical beaters and the unique rotor design and blade pattern allows you to achieve accurate spreading rates without the trouble and fuss of changing spreader decks.

Available in 8 to 15 tonne models with a range of options. Suitable for farmyard manure, semi-solid, poultry litter, industrial sludges, composts and waste products.

Key Benefits

  • One spreader, two spreading options - Available on spreaders with 1100mm diameter rotors, the option of hydraulic folding canopy doors allows the spreader to be used as a vertical beater spreader or as a spinning disc spreader when the doors are closed. 
  • Trouble-free running - We use the highest quality bearings, bearing assemblies and bushings with easy access grease points, so your Delilah keeps working with minimal down time. The electronically balanced spreading rotors eliminate vibration during operation.
  • Maximum output - Large diameter rotors and a high tip speed give you wide spreading width and excellent shredding on a range of manures, composts and sludges.
