KCD is suspending the Equipment Share Program due to public safety concerns presented by the COVID-19 virus.
We will reach out to those who have requested to use the equipment about future scheduling once the equipment is available to use again.
Thank you for your patience.
The RhinoLimer drop spreader is available for a $15/day or $40/weekend (Friday PM-Monday AM) fee. Landowners are strongly encouraged to pick up the spreader at the KCD office in Renton. The drop spreader has a 2-inch ball hitch. The spreader must be returned to the KCD office in Renton by 12:00 noon and may be picked up the following day before 3:00 pm. Users late to return the spreader will be charged for an additional day(s) of renting. KCD can deliver the spreader from KCD’s office for an additional fee of $2.00 per mile round-trip for the equipment, not to exceed $100 per use.
The RhinoLimer is ground driven and can be pulled behind a tractor, ATV or truck when in the field. Capacity is approximately 300 pounds (6 50-pound bags) per load. This equipment is primarily used for drop-spreading lime products, however use for fertilizer and seed are also allowed.

Landowners with a current KCD Farm Conservation Plan may not need a nutrient management consultation prior to use of the spreader. However, a follow-up review of the Farm Conservation Plan may be conducted. Visit Farm Conservation Planning to learn more.
We strongly encourage landowners to have a recent soil test analysis available for review before renting the equipment. Visit our website for more information about our Soil Testing Program.
