ANCASTER, Ont. — Bay Lynx Manufacturing says after three years of slinging all manner of loads in Ontario, Western Canada and the U.S., it is ready to introduce its Multicat Spreader to the East.

“We’ve got about 95 units out in the market right now with 65 of those in the U.S.,” says Greg Koppelaar, of Bay Lynx. “It the ability of our product to not only unload, but throw and spread everything from sand and top soil to stone and sand that makes it so popular.”

The patented box and supporting technology allows one operator to spread as much as 20 tons of material in as little as 10, the company adds.

“This saves both time and money by eliminating the need for a dump truck to deliver the material to the site, a machine to cast the aggregate or other material into the basement – or around whatever the job may be – and a laborer to grade the material,” says company spokesman Mark Pennings. You will also eliminate waste through contamination and spillage.”

The Multicat builds off the success of the company’s earlier product, the Agracat Stone Spreader, but it ability to handle a wide range of product makes it a must for almost anyone involved in construction, the firm explains.

Featuring a large chute opening with load suspension beam; upper hydraulic control platform, tandem pump hydraulic system, plastic liner installed in the hopper; removable main conveyor; high solid epoxy primer with a polyurethane top and full radio and remote control options available – the company says its ability to sling material 75 feet makes the Multicat the top slinging spreader on the market today.

The Multicat is available in models MC15, MC17, MC18 and MC21. For more information, call 888-337-3331.
