New Leader Spreaders

All of our products are built around quality and technology. The New Leader G4 spinner spreader revolutionized the crop nutrient application industry with its wide, consistent spread pattern. Other products such as the MultApplier and MultiBin add-on hoppers allow simultaneous spreading of up to four products, further increasing your return-on-investment.

NL 4500G4 EDGE

L4500G4

The Edge features precise boundary spreading so you can apply material right up to a boundary line. The machine features increased gate openings and with the Edge with MultApplier insert you can reach higher rates, application speeds and widths. The MultiBin is also available for spreading up to four products in one pass.

The Edge is equipped with an ISOBUS system for easy "plug and play" for standardized connections, cables and software for use with any compatible controller. The system was built using precision manufacturing with laser cutting tech and slot and tab design, which gives the Edge self-centering components such as the spinner frame, material divider and hillside divider.  Precise boundary spreading is a key feature of the NL4500 G4 Edge from Highway Equipment Co.

An upgraded hydraulics system has been developed to support independent spinner speed control for boundary spreading, fast and exact conveyor control and an automatic chain tensioner and the Edge comes standard with automatic lubrication alerts.

NEW LEADER NL4560G4 EDGE Large Capacity Drawn Spinner Spreader

Edge Follows the 4Rs of Nutrient Management

Right Source – Matches nutrients type to crop needs
Right Rate – Matches amount of nutrients to crop needs
Right Time – Makes nutrients available when crops need them
Right Place – Keeps nutrients where crops can use them

The NL4560 Edge continues that tradition with plug-and-play ISOBUS electronics that hook into compatible controllers through standardized plugs, cables and software. It also incorporates the power of diagnostic feedback, automatic service notifications, boundary spreading, a feed gate optimizer, low bin countdown, automatic chain oiler, and it can be expanded to control multiple bins.

This is a machine that makes repeatable, responsible nutrient management possible—with a mobility that’s unmatched in the industry. Advanced hydraulics makes it easy to connect and disconnect, so operators can easily put New Leader technology where they want it. More control comes from independent spinner speed and monitoring, plus the capability for boundary spreading of multiple products.

Precision Application

Spread materials faster, wider and more consistently, even on windy days, with proven G4 variable rate broadcasting technology. Take advantage of dual RPM sensors and pulse width modulation (PWM) valves to maintain precise speed on each individual spinner within 5 RPM. Giving operators the power to apply along a boundary line with the flip of a switch for the most precise nutrient placement for maximum yield potential.

Advanced Hydraulics

Experience fast and exact conveyor control, independent spinner speed control and extended conveyor life with the NL4560’s superior hydraulics system. High-tech sensors give operators early insights into potential issues by monitoring hydraulic condition and performance based on metrics including fluid level, temperature, filter restriction and conveyor and system pressure. Multiple test ports make in-field service and diagnostics easier.

Easy Maintenance

The NL4560 is built with the operator in mind – maximizing time in the cab and the field and simplifying maintenance. A flip-up hillside divider lets operators move easily between spreading lime and other products, while maintaining max flow and without getting out a single tool.

  • Front, rear and trailer grease banks for efficient greasing
  • Corrosion-resistant 304 stainless steel cross tubes, mounts and take-up brackets
  • Self-centering spinner frame and material divider

Extend conveyor life

The NL4560 maintains proper chain adjustments with an automatic chain tensioner. Continuous tension helps extend life. In addition, operators receive automatic lubrication alerts after 10 hours of conveyor run time.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

PRECISION APPLICATION

  • 16-section swath width control
  • 1/2 width and remote spreading
  • Boundary spreading
  • Automatic feedgate and fan frame control
  • Precise independent spinner control and monitoring
  • Dual RPM sensors & dual pulse width modulation (PWM) valves for precise RPM on each spinner
  • Controls of less than 5 RPM difference between each spinner
  • Hydraulic feedgate controls for height adjustment from the cab
  • Feedgate optimizer to calculate and automatically set the feedgate

The NL5000 G5 makes it reality, making it easy for operators to not only target the right product to the right place, but also respect the environment without sacrificing productivity. How? A patent-pending spinner design delivers revolutionary left to right and right to left swath width control for never-before-seen spreading precision, which maintains a precision drop point for repeatable product placement. The G5 gives operators the ability to shift the fan frame fore and aft as well as left and right to control the swath. This alters where the product falls onto the spinners while moving through the field. This technology along with adjusting the conveyor speed gives pinpoint accuracy capabilities. Spread materials fast, wide, and with increased accuracy and consistency, with patented G5 spinner technology. Next-level technology gives operators right to left and left to right swath width control for more accuracy in placing nutrients. But the real difference comes from the unprecedented spinner and spinner assembly control in the G5 design, delivering unmatched precision product placement.

Can I apply more than one product with the G5?

Increase efficiencies and productivity by adding a 5 ft. or 7 ft. MultApplier insert to the NL5000. Adding a MultApplier lets operators spread one or two products simultaneously or at variable rates in one pass. Featuring increased gate openings, the NL5000 G5 with MultApplier can reach higher rates, application speeds and widths. For the addition of micronutrients, the MultiBin is also available, for spreading up to four products in one pass. Additionally, the improved waterfall divider and matched-rate output of the MultiBin is now standard on the NL5000 G5 and supports even higher rates of output. That means more flexibility for a wider variety of micronutrient applications.
