BBI GRASSHOPPER

MID-SEASON TOP-DRESSER
Dress for success with Grasshopper, the original mid-season, top-dress applicator from Salford. Holds 5 tons of fertilizer, 7 tons of lime—get your emergent plants the food they need to maximize yield with Grasshopper.

OPTIMIZED FOR ROW CROPS, SOD/TURF FARMS
Grasshopper features a high-clearance design to limit disturbing emergent plants, coupled with flotation tires for minimizing soil compaction. This spreader achieves precision application in both row crop and sod/turf farm environments—any terrain requiring a delicate touch.

MECHANICAL EXCELLENCE
Don’t mistake this 9-foot, single-axle applicator with the light touch for being “light duty.” Grasshopper is built for durability without compromising precision, featuring ground-wheel-drive mechanics, and the original Salford spreader system for a consistently wider, flatter spread pattern. Powered by PTO or tractor-supplied hydraulics.

COVER CROPS

Salford's BBI line of spreaders are capable of accurately broadcasting seed and fertilizer.  Although best suited for wheat or grass seed, which are applied at higher rates, Salford's BBI Javelin and BBI Grasshopper and suited for top dress application.  These top dress applicators can serve a multi-purpose role as mid-season cover crop applicator for higher rates of cover crop seed.
