The Ground-Effect Liquid Spreading Bucket incorporates FutureSpread Technology to deliver accurate and consistent results.

FutureSpread Manufacturing & Distribution

IMS have the manufacturing and distribution rights from the owner of the patent and in association with the tried and tested concept developed by FutureSpread for this fantastic product. The result is a bucket and mixing system now available to the global commercial helicopter market.

Developed for Efficiency & Effectiveness

The concept of this system’s design originated from the union of two of New Zealand’s leading operators, who needed a system built to meet their specific requirements. Since that day in 2006, the equipment has been refined and developed independently to evolve into a system which now performs extremely efficiently and effectively, with results far exceeding the agricultural industries initial expectations.

Patented & Proven Spinner Design

The patented and proven spinner design and the tried and tested IMS Ground-Effect bucket system combination forms a slurry application bucket, which produces results unmatched by other application systems. All of this comes at a very reasonable price with the advantage of the knowledge that these systems were designed by helicopter operators, for helicopter operators. IMS also offer direct consultation with the operators and developers to ensure the best advice available both during and after sales.

Range of Four Sizes & On-Farm Systems

The liquid-spreading system we offer is available in a range of four different sizes to suit any operation. And, we offer an on-farm grinding and mixing system to suit each size of bucket and every individual operation incorporating the latest technology to ensure the most efficient, reliable and professional operation available.
