The on-off mechanism on shoulder spreaders has historically been fiddly, the zip on the bags vulnerable and the gearboxes weak.
The new enhanced Cresco 5 gearbox, a simple on-off mechanism with easy to lock in settings and a strong 9kg weight bearing bag provides superior reliability and strength. Most importantly of all our improvements is the gearbox – the new Cresco 5 is built for smooth running and longevity.
Although Cresco is new, we have been working within the industry for a long time.
Our company, DMMP was an importer of a well established brand of spreaders for over 20 years and before that we designed and manufactured professional line spraying equipment. Back track further and our company sold animal feed and fertiliser. In essence, we’ve been around the block!
With the tumultuous nature of the global economy over the past five years, it became increasingly difficult to supply the European market with a spreader range that hit the right price point. We knew the industry was crying out for a manufacturer with a versatile chain of logistics that can supply all customer with a quality product at the right price, no matter where they may be.
If there’s something we know about, it’s spreaders. We have been studying them, fixing them, selling them and using them for the best part of 4 decades. It might not be something we’d volunteer at a party but we sit at the forefront of knowledge with regards to professional pedestrian spreaders and we wanted to take a bet on some of our ideas.
In addition, the established suppliers seemed stuck in the mud – assembled boxed spreaders would be sent all around the world racking up a huge carbon footprint and the end customer was left fitting the bill for all that transport!
We wanted to establish a new chain of logistics, where the spreader was sent in raw materials around the world and only assembled in the country of the purchaser. By doing so, we keep our carbon footprint low and our costs low.
We partnered with a number of engineers to combine our knowledge with their experience and expertise in brining a product from idea to reality. In the process, we have revolutionised the way in which customers can adjust the spread pattern on their spreaders.
Instead of fiddly settings, or multiple hoppers, we have a simple to use slide system. In addition, we have created a custom built testing bed to test thousands of spreaders and fertilizers in order to offer the most accurate calibrations available.
Lastly we have taken what is the standard, basic agitation system on push spreaders and we have created an innovative spider system that improves flow and spreads difficult materials with ease.
Our brand is new to the game but we are not. We care about our imprint on this industry and we only expect the highest quality of spreaders.
Each raw material is individually quality checked before going out the door. It is then received by our depots before being assembled and quality checked again.
If a spreader sneaks through our rigorous checks, our 3 year warranty offer ensures our customers can expect their money back if the quality is not up to scratch.
