Amtec HVO

The Amtec HVO (previously Amtec 100) has a stainless steel frame. The hopper is made from ABS plastic and has a 50kg capacity and the gears are fully enclosed.

“This spreader has a good loading height and is very comfortable to use. It is simple to engage and disengage spreading because the lever is right where you need it — on the handle. It is also simple to change rates, using the scale beneath the hopper, and the whole unit is easy to wash out and maintain. It is also accurate,” says our tester.
The Amtec 100, available from Amenity Technology of Reading was replaced by the Amtec HVO (high volume output). Amenity Technology technical director Stuart Ashworth confirms: “The only difference is that the centre plate can be opened to make a huge hole for high volume output of top dressing materials.”
