Turfco Adds Vanguard Engine to WideSpin 1550 Topdresser

The introduction of a new engine to Turfco’s WideSpin 1550 tow-behind will bring higher performance to one of the golf course and sports turf industry’s topdressing standards. With the Briggs & Stratton Vanguard 13-horsepower V-Twin engine, superintendents and turf managers get the reliability of a commercial-grade engine coupled with the WideSpin’s hydraulic system to get unprecedented control and consistency for a wide variety of operations.

The updated WideSpin also offers a feature that automatically idles up when spinners are needed and idles down to reduce noise during transportation or near play on the field or course.

“It’s a great new platform that further enhances the capability of the WideSpin 1550 to provide the consistent, precise, productive topdressing application that superintendents and turf managers desire,” said Scott Kinkead, Turfco executive vice president.

Additionally, Turfco has developed a new engine guard that will protect against debris thrown from the tires of the tow vehicle.

Turfco developed its WideSpin spinner topdresser and makes upgrades to the machine from the input of superintendents and sports turf managers. The machine is a key component in equipment lineups around the world for its versatile, even application rates and large-capacity hopper that enable operators to topdress 18 greens in less than 90 minutes. Like all of Turfco’s golf and sports turf equipment, the WideSpin 1550 is covered by a three-year warranty.
