Nitro 450 Header Image

The NITRO spreader from Tubeline originally started with the 450, 600, and 750 models followed by the 950 model shortly after the initial product launch. Developed with features to ensure commercial readiness these spreaders offer slip slide poly board floors and walls, a guillotine endgate, reversible apron chain, and quick drop beaters. Engineered for commercial use, our commercial line are all scale ready. The guillotine endgate can be held in any position controlling how much material is able to be moved to the beaters by the variable speed apron chain. This method of delivery provides consistent metering whether working with pen pack or semi-solids.

Apron Chain Warranty Feature Image

Apron Chain Limited Lifetime Warranty

Under the Apron Chain Limited Lifetime Warranty, Tubeline will replace a broken apron chain or connecting link on any Nitro model manure spreader. Restrictions may apply. For more information, please contact the Tubeline office.

C V Shaft Feature Image

CV Shaft

All Nitro models come equipped with a CV (Constant Velocity) Shaft allowing for a tighter turning radius, greatly reducing the incidence of driveline chatter in a tight turn, and increasing the longevity of the driveline.

Guillotine Endgate Feature Image

Guillotine Endgate

The guillotine endgate can be opened partially to meter the amount of material being delivered to the beater assembly. This ensures the optimal delivery of lime and various manure consistencies to the field.
