Built Tougher to Last Longer
Built Tougher to Last Longer
We built the Classic Spreader to be tough as a tank, with heavy welded steel construction, rust-resisting coaltar epoxy lining and Rust-Oleum paint, and heavy duty components. Beyond that, we designed the classic spreader to be easy to maintain and service, ensuring it'll be working hard for many years! And just in case, each Classic Spreader is covered by a hefty warranty!
Healthier Pastures
Healthier Pastures
Manure is an integral part of a healthy farm, and getting it out of the stable and into your pasture is made even safer and easier with the Classic Spreader. With our innovative shred-and-spread design and variable-speed operation, manure is spread more evenly and finely. A finer and more even spread gets the manure's rich nutrients back into the ground as quickly as possible, which ensures your pastures are safer and healthier for your horses!

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 1" 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.

Advantages
ABI spreaders are fully-welded with COR-TEN steel to be tank-tough through and through. Our extremely thick COR-TEN steel provides tremendous longevity without the ridiculous expense of stainless steel. So yes, our spreaders aren't shiny like your kitchen appliances for good reason: stainless steel is not as structurally sound as COR-TEN. Below we have detailed out why our spreaders are built to outlast the barn; and the competition.





Corrosion-Resistant Steel
Corrosion-Resistant Steel
We start with extremely thick 10 gauge corrosion-resistant COR-TEN steel construction. Unlike most spreaders, the Classic Spreader is a longterm "one-time" investment which has a fully welded box frame, using thicker steel, for worry-free durability. COR-TEN steel may be exposed to the elements, even unfinished, and rust will not perforate it for decades. With COR-TEN steel, you get the longevity and strength required to build a world-class spreader, without the unneeded additional expense and structural weakness of stainless steel.

Protective Body Liner
Protective Body Liner
The inside of the spreader body is coated with a Coal-Tar-Epoxy liner. The Coal-Tar-Epoxy liner adds an industrial seal to protect from the severe corrosive effects of urine filled manure. Coal-Tar-Epoxies are commonly used to line underground sewage tanks and pipelines, and even protect the hulls of barges in salt water.
