Shindaiwa RS75S

The RS75S is the largest broadcast unit from Shindaiwa and has a 34kg capacity hopper.

It’s polypropylene, making the spreader very lightweight and easy to clean. The framework is welded stainless steel for durability, although a cheaper epoxy powder-coated option is available. The unit weighs 8.3kg.
Having 25.4cm-diameter, pneumatic-tyres and nylon axle bearings, the unit is easy to push. The handlebar is a good height for operator comfort and the grips are soft. Standing on wheels spaced 65cm apart, the unit is particularly stable when filling and in use. It’s a nice height for loading and we find the spring-loaded on/off mechanism very positive and comfortable to operate.
The Shindaiwa RS75S, like the smaller 40RS, has a rotary agitator to stir the material and is factory calibrated to provide consistent application. Rate adjustment is simple and a chart is supplied with the unit to give spreader settings and rate conversions. A wet-weather cover is available as an accessory.
We reckon the RS75S is handy for light commercial duties such as bowls clubs and garden maintenance.
