LANCO Spreaders

State-of-the-Art Mulching Equipment for Highbush Blueberries and other Row Crops

Crop Care by LANCO Row Mulcher


The Crop Care™ Row Mulcher by LANCO Mfg. Co. is an essential piece of equipment for highbush blueberry operations and nurseries. What takes days by hand can be accomplished in a few hours with this dual-directional mulch spreader. This mulcher accommodates a wide range of application patterns and materials: You can apply a layer that is 48 in. wide and 1/2 in. deep or 12 in. wide and 8 in. deep, depending upon your material and your needs.

The LANCO row mulcher body is constructed of 12 GA. galvanized steel panels on a heavy-duty chassis. The poly lumber floor has a 10 year warranty. Chassis and frame are primed and painted with red rust-proof paint. Made in Lancaster County Pennsylvania to world class standards.

Apron & Belt Speed Controls allow for instant, infinitely variable speed options. PTO Hydraulic Drive features priority flow control valves for maximum operator control.  Tilt Control Dual Directional Belt provides precise spreading at variable depths and width.  High Flotation Tires reduce soil compaction and reduce stress on the equipment.
Heavy-Duty Pillow Block is easily adjustable and assures true tracking of the apron chain. Apron Chain features 4 in. spacing and a low-friction poly floor with a 10 year warranty. Extra Sidewall Braces over super-duty galvanized panels add stability and extend service life. Rack and Pinion End Gate is easy to open and close and retains your load during transport.
