Manure Spreader, 185 CuFt PTO - Features
Features
Built in Lancaster Pennsylvania, by highly skilled craftsman with decades of spreader building experience, these spreaders are crafted for daily farm-use-conditions and made of the most durable components we know of. Materials such as grade-5 bolts, greaseable bearings, oil-impregnated bronze bushings, heavy-duty size 60 roller chain (nearly 2.54cm wide), T-Rod apron chain, and hardened sprockets ensure longevity. You can judge a spreaders materials and components quality by its overall unit weight, the heavier the better. The ABI spreader weighs nearly 1/3 more than equivalently sized competitors spreaders. Now that is tangible quality you can feel!


Hydraulic Apron Web Variable Flow Control
Unlike most competitors, the 185 cu, ft, ABI Classic Manure spreaders feature the ability to hydraulically control the flow rate of manure being pushed to the back beaters for spreading. Flow control is accomplished by speeding up or slowing down the apron web, that feeds manure to the back beaters, independently of the PTO speed. This control enables the operator to either empty the manure as fast as possible or apply controlled amounts of manure to specific areas to maximize its' fertilizer value. Variable flow control also enables this spreader to handle a wider range of manure, as manure consistency can change depending on manure type, bedding material, stage of decomposition, and weather, without causing damage or additional maintenance to the spreader. On the 185 PTO model, the apron web speed is adjusted via a hydraulic switch. A high speed clean-out mode is also provided.
Shreds & Then Spreads - 3 Beater Bars
Shreds & Then Spreads - 3 Beater Bars
The 185 cu. ft. model is equipped standard with 3 beater bars. Two designed to shred manure and the other designed to spread it evenly. The shredder beaters, with 160 shredding blades, is geared slower than the wide spread beater to maximize shredding power. The spreading beater is expertly designed to further breakdown the manure and evenly distribute it on the ground. The 185 cu. ft. manure spreader has 14 large wide spread paddles. Shredding before spreading and then evenly spreading over a wide swath, exposes more manure surface to sunlight which allows it to dry and decompose far more quickly. Owning an ABI manure spreader that both shreds manure before it spreads and also controls the amount of manure being applied to the ground, enables the horse owner to help maintain an eco-balanced pasture. An eco-balanced pasture can help reduce colic, increase pasture turn efficiency rates, help produce more vigorous grass growth, and reduce odor & flies around the farm.

Advanced PTO Drive System
Advanced PTO Drive System
Unlike many other spreaders, the ABI Manure Spreader provides constant power to the apron chain and beater bars via an advanced PTO drive system. This system utilizes durable chain instead of a belt that wears out over time. Belts slip minimizing power to the beater bars and apron chain and performance diminishes with time. With the ABI Classic PTO Manure Spreader, you are assured maximum power for the heaviest of loads even on soft pastures and slick wintery weather. The entire system is driven by the tractor's PTO, unlike a ground driven spreader, the spreader wheels are free spinning. The PTO shaft is included.

Optional Equipment


Hydraulic End Gate
Hydraulic End Gate
The Hydraulic End Gate is designed to close off the back end of the manure spreader to prohibit spillage out the back of the spreader into the barn aisle or during transport. The end gate is raised and lowered hydraulically and serves to additionally help deflect flying manure away from the operator and tow vehicle while spreading.

Fines Pan / Litter Pan
Fines Pan / Litter Pan
For those that leave nothing to chance, the Fines Pan prevents small fines of manure from falling off the back of the spreader and to the ground without first being processed by the beater bar. The pan has a release for easy cleaning and is replaceable. The Fines Pan can also assist in preventing manure from falling out the back of the spreader during loading and transport. A fines pan is highly desired when spreading dry material such a saw dust bedding, wood chip bedding, or dry compost; any type of material with small fines.
