For spreading beds to either side of the tractor, the bed spreading deflector provides the optimum fertiliser distribution without spreading any material behind the tractor. For optimising the fertiliser distribution, the telescopic end pieces on the bed spreading deflector can be adjusted to suit, depending on working width and fertiliser type. The bed spreading deflector can be used on one side or both sides. Just like the border spread deflector, the bed spreading deflector is actuated manually, or, as an option, hydraulically from the tractor seat. If the bed spreading deflector is swivelled up out of the way, then the spreader can be utilised as usual for arable farming.
