Our Commitment

Our Commitment

The Spreader Experts for Agriculture, Golf and Athletics, and Infrastructure

At Spreader Specialties, we sell the finest equipment—spreaders for a variety of farming applications, including fertilizer, lime, and litter, equipment for gravel and other road toppings for construction companies and municipal needs, and something near and dear to our own hearts, spreaders optimized to manage the beautiful golf courses of our neck of the woods.  And we sell this equipment to even finer people—the farmers and ranchers, the golf course managers, and the municipalities and construction companies of the Northern Plains states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas.

Since our founding, we have dedicated ourselves to doing business with a long-term perspective. That means the day we sell a spreader to a customer is just the beginning—closing the sale is the opening of a new relationship that we know we will enjoy for many years to come.

Our commitment to our customers means that we’ll be there for them, whenever and wherever they need us, with the parts and service required to keep their BBI spreaders working to bring the best cost-in-use and return on investment in the industry.

In addition to providing fast, dependable solutions on the parts and services front, we also maintain an ongoing commitment to customer education. You’ll see Spreader Specialties professionals out in the community, demonstrating everything from “big iron” to the small tech gadgets that drive precision agriculture for higher yields, greener turf, and greater efficiency across the board.

Spreader Specialties. Here today in Austin, and wherever you need us tomorrow.

 

Meet Mike Olson and Spreader Specialties

Spreader Specialties and the markets it serves reflect owner Mike Olson's own diverse business background. In addition to a long career in agribusiness, Mike has also taken turns as a real estate developer and is the current owner of the nearby River Oaks Golf Course in Austin.  As a result, Mike and his team adeptly service not only the agriculture markets in the Northern Plains area of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas, but also the turf management sector for golf and athletic fields, as well as needs in the municipal and commercial real estate communities for infrastructure development.

In this video, Mike Olson gives viewers an inside look at Spreader Specialties. Mike discusses his exclusive commitment to BBI Spreaders, supporting customers through parts and service in tandem with BBI. In addition, Mike discusses other topics of interest, such as precision agriculture needs in the Northern Plains markets and the products he sees as real difference-makers in the BBI lineup, including Endurance (BBI’s line of spreaders for litter, compost, and shavings applications) and Triad (the industry’s first three-hopper, independent variable-spreader for precision dry material application).
