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 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.
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.
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.

The optional bolt on paddle kit cups material to provide better throw.
For better management and spreading performance of poultry litter, Nitro spreaders can be equipped with an optional spinner deck. The interchangeable quick-drop beater system allows operators to conveniently switch between the vertical or spinner deck beater assemblies offering flexibility to both producers and custom operators.
LED lights and flashers ensure transit safety. Innovative light covers mechanically open and close in sequence with the end gate, ensuring lights are protected while spreading.
The rubber cushion suspension tongue provides operator comfort and reduces mechanical stress and fatigue of both the spreader and the tractor.
In addition to the standard yellow, the Nitro lineup is available in red, green, blue and orange.
Enhanced Rubber Seal Kit
The Enhanced Rubber Seal Kit adds a U-shape compression seal to the front panel and the endgate to help contain semi solid materials.
Oscillating Ball Hitch
Optional on all models is the oscillating ball hitch available in various pin sizes.
When equipped with a brake system, all Nitro spreaders come with two calipers per side for a total of four. Hydraulically operated, these calipers provide the necessary clamping force to keep even our monstrous Nitro 950 in line.

Digi-Star® Scale System
The optional Digi-Star® 5pt 60,000 lb. differential weigh beam system is available on all Nitro models. Four of the load cells are located under the box and the fifth cell is placed on the hitch.
Accounting for environmental protection, the Digi-Star® scale system lets you know how many tons you've hauled and spread on your fields, perfect for both farmers and custom operators.
Select NitroRS and Nitro models can easily double as a silage hauler, with the addition of optional height-extenders.
Silage extensions are not recommended for manure.
