Manure Spreader, 50 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!


4-Speed Variable Flow Control
Unlike most competitors, all ABI Classic Manure spreaders feature the ability to control the flow rate of manure being applied to the ground with 4 different speeds. Flow control is accomplished by speeding up or slowing down the apron web, that feeds manure to the back beaters, independently of ground speed. The speeds are adjusted via the front lever and 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. And finally having 4-speeds encourage an eco-balanced pasture by enabling a slow manure feed rate and high beater spin rate for fine shredding and spreading.
Shreds & Then Spreads - 2 Beater Bars
Shreds & Then Spreads - 2 Beater Bars
The Classic Spreader models are equipped standard with 2 beater bars. One designed to shred manure and the other designed to spread it evenly. The shredder beater, with 32 shredding blades, is geared slower than the wide spread beater to maximize shredding power. The shredder "hood" fits over top the shredder beater bar, this ensures the manure is shredded before it is spread. The spreading beater is expertly designed to further breakdown the manure and evenly distribute it on the ground. The 25 cu. ft. manure spreader has 8 spreading paddles and the 50 cu. ft. spreader has 10 paddle. 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


Manual End Gate
Manual End Gate
The Manual 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 manually by hand 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.
