The Cross range of Rear Discharge Manure Spreaders are available in capacities from 6 – 16 tonnes. The twin vertical beaters allow for the even spreading of all agricultural and industrial manure. The beaters offer a unique ballanced design. This allows the user to spread the finest of materials at a range of speeds with no vibration back trough the spreader. The strong box iron chassis and commercial axle as standard make these machines one of the strongest available on the market. 

THE CROSS LOW SIDE RANGE - 6 & 9 Tonne (6t,7t,8t,9t,10t & 11t low models)

The Cross muck spreaders come in various sizes from 6 - 16 tonnes. The 6 and 9 tonne models have lower sides than the larger range of spreaders. This to allow farmers who want to load with very small tractor loaders have an option in the spreader range from Cross. Both models can be brought up in size by adding on wooden greedy boards or large galvanized steel side extensions.

This brings :

  • 6 tonne model to 7 Tonne with wooden sides or 8 tonne with steel extensions 

  • 9 tonne model to 10 tonne with wooden sides or 11 tonne with steel extensions. 

THE CROSS HIGH SIDE RANGE - 11 Tonne - 16 Tonne (11t,12t,13.5t,14t,15t,16.5t,17t & 18.5t  high models)

The 11 , 14  and 16 tonne models are the largest capacity spreaders per physical mm dimension on the market. Most competitor machines get longer or wider as the capacity increases. The innovative tapered top sheet design allows this machine to carry a lot more that other makes without increasing the wheel base. The higher side model is still no higher than any competitor machine for loading and can easily be loaded by any tractor loader. 

All models can be brought up in size by adding on wooden greedy boards or large galvanized steel side extensions. 

This brings:

  • 11 tonne model to 12 Tonne with wooden sides or 13.5 tonne with steel extensions

  • 14 tonne model to 15 tonne with wooden sides or 16.5 tonne with steel extensions

  • 16 tonne model to 17 tonne with wooden sides or 18.5 tonne with steel extensions


Box Section Chassis

All Cross Muck Spreaders are built on a chassis design. All Chassis steel, uprights and draw bar are manufactured from heavy wall Box section. Other manufacturers use folded steel where Cross use Box Iron. The advantage of the Box Iron is its strength. It guarantees a strong base for everything else to be mounted onto. It also allows users to tow out of an under chassis and not the front sheet of the machine.

All box section is also fully seem welded to the main frame of the machine. Most manufactures just stitch weld the frame on. Cross Agricultural Engineering Seam weld the machine for 3 reasons:

  1. Makes the machine more rigid and stronger.

  2. Seals the machine fully to stop rust occurring

  3. Seals any leak points

Axle Choices

The Cross Range of Rear Discharge Manure Spreaders are fitted with 10 stud Commercial axles from Granning or Distag as standard. This axle type has a 420 x 180mm brake shoe. Other makes of spreaders available on the market use 8 stud agricultural rated axles on machines. These 8 stud axles are not up to standard when it comes to moving larger loads of manure.  All Axles are fitted with hydraulic brakes as standard. There is also the option of air brakes if needed.

Drive Unit

Gearbox Overview

Cross Agricultural Engineering only use the best of components in their muck spreader range. The Rogelberg spinner gearbox is one example of this. No matter what size of muck spreader supplied by Cross Agricultural Engineering, the heavy-duty gearbox is fitted to all models. Cross do not use any light duty gearboxes, even in the smaller models. This is due to the thinking that same product is always passing through the beaters so why make it lighter?
This gearbox is PTO driven by means of an under-machine drive shaft. This shaft is shear-pin protected by means of a shear-pin on the gearbox and on the drive shaft itself.
If any foreign material gets stuck in the spinners, the PTO is fitted with a shear pin and over-run clutch to stop the gear box being damaged in any way.

Balanced Beaters

All Cross Muck Spreaders are built with a laser cut, fully balanced beater section. There are numerous advantages in this:

  1. Each Tooth is in its own housing. Therefore it breaks up the dung more as it acts like an arm passing through the muck. Most other manufacturers simply bolt a tooth onto an auger.

  2. The teeth are reversible. They only wear one side. The auger type machines will wear the inside and outside of the tooth.

  3. The liquid spinners on the bottom allow the spreading of liquid slurry and stones.

  4. The spinners on a Cross muck spreader are fully balanced before fitting. This means no vibration is passed back through the machine and into the gear box. This balancing takes place in Cross Engineering’s state of the art 3D-Animation facility

  5. If the bolt shears or falls out the tooth still works as it is in its own box housing and the second bolt holds it in place. Other makes of muck spreaders swing the teeth back in if one bolt breaks making the tooth un-usable

Braking System

Air or Hydraulics or Both

All Cross Tankers come with a few different braking options.


This option is standard across the full range of Cross Tankers.


The option is a great upgrade for a user with a higher speed tractor who does a lot of road transportation and wants  smoother  and more responsive braking 

Air & Hydraulics

This suits the operator with a few different tractors. The tanker can then be used on air with a higher speed tractor and used on hydraulic brakes for an older tractor.

Tooth Housing

A Finer Spreading Sample

The spinners on a Cross Muck spreader are unique to any other make. They come as part of a tooth and housing system. Each Tooth is in its own housing. Therefore, it breaks up the dung more as it acts like an arm passing through the muck. Most other manufacturers simply bolt a tooth directly onto a vertical auger.

The 4 Dog legs on the bottom disk stops the spreader letting out large lumps between the rotors and assists the spreader in spreading liquid. Most other manufacturers only have 2 base legs which do not run up along the center tube to meet the beater teeth. This is an area where lumps generally escape on other machines. 

Hydraulic Slurry Door

Stops Dripping on the Road

The Cross Rear Discharge Manure Spreader Range can be fitted with a hydraulic slurry door. This Door is fitted with a rubber seal as standard to stop liquid manure dripping out. 

This door also allows controls the light covers to fold into place when spreading and stop any lights being damaged.
