ABI Manure Spreader - For Healthy Stables & Pastures
If you are a horse owner looking to improve horse manure management practices on your property, the innovative design of the "ABI Elite Spreader" will make this possible without the danger and hassle of using a traditional spreader. Traditional manure spreaders fling uncontrolled chunks of manure all over the pasture, this creates a breading ground for flies and parasites, foul odors and unhealthy pastures filled with bare spots and weeds. However, unlike traditional style manure spreaders, the "ABI Elite Spreader" is an innovative drop style spreader that not only offers improved safety, far lower maintenance and ease of use, but additionally shreds and then evenly spreads the manure onto the land in a controlled manner. This process exposes more manure surface to sunlight, drying it out to reduce parasite and fly reproduction, and allowing the manure to decompose far more quickly. Quick decomposition encourages a healthy pasture and greatly reduces pasture turn times. The ABI Elite Spreader sets new high standards of safety, ease of use & ease of maintenance. No exposed augurs or rotating blades to injure or fling hazards into the air. No moving apron chains or elaborate chain and gear systems to fight with. The ABI Elite Spreader comes in 3 variations. The most popular is the 37 cu ft ground drive model. Also available ia a 37 cu ft hydraulically controlled model. See the "Videos" tab above to video footage of the hydraulic units.
ABI Spreaders are sold direct to the customer over the phone and internet and shipped via a common-carrier truck to your property. This factory-direct business model eliminates the middleman and dealer markups allowing ABI to provide a better spreader for the money. All models of our spreaders are almost always in-stock and ready for quick shipment. ABI Spreaders are delivered fully assembled.
Superior Design & Quality:
The Elite Spreader's quality of craftsmanship, quality components and overbuilt construction is obvious upon seeing it in person. This is one impressive machine that is built to last. With the ABI Elite Spreader, proper manure management principles are finally attainable. With improved safety, lower maintenance, ease of use and controlled and evenly spread shredded output, the ABI Elite Spreader is truly the solution you have been searching for.
Simple Ground Drive System: (If equipped)
The "Elite Spreader" offers a unique four-wheel ground driven design. The back wheels support the majority of the spreader load and feature high quality replaceable bearings, hubs & spindles. The front wheels are brought into contact with the ground with the ratcheting turn knuckle. Once in contact, they turn the internal agitator blades and shredding drum via a simple chain drive system that has virtually no maintenance and is simple to use.
The shredding drum is powered by the ground engagement wheels to shred the manure. This shredded material decomposes very fast, helps reduce parasite eggs/fly larva, and eliminates the need to harrow after spreading. The blades are welded to the drum in a unique pattern to produce a continuous even spread. This ensures vegetation will not be smothered and create bare spots in the pasture.
The agitator bar utilizes specially designed blades that feed manure to the shredding drum and ensures consistent material flow. The blades are individually replaceable and are protected by a shear pin in the event that an unbreakable object gets jammed.
Another innovative feature of the Elite Spreader is the release panel under the spreader. The release panel is spring-loaded and allows materials that are too hard to shred, such as rocks, wood and frozen chunks, to pass through the spreader without causing damage. The tension of the release panel is adjustable to suit individual needs. This panel may also be released to allow the spreader to be emptied in the rare event the operator decides not to spread the load.
The "V" shaped processing bin holds up to 37 cu. ft. of heaped manure and the front and rear panels are sloped to aid in the flow of manure for processing. The back panel is lower for easier loading. The extra height of the front panel allows for additional material to be heaped. The bin panels are heavy duty 12 gauge solid steel with a durable powder coated treatment.
Side Loading Panel: (3H & 3G Only)
For easy side loading, simply remove the side loading panel. This is ideal when directly loading the spreader while picking stalls. As the spreader fills simply replace the panel to allow maximum loading capacity.
3G - The 3' ground driven unit has 2 transport/load bearing wheels and two shredder drum engagement wheels.
3H - The 3' hydraulic unit has two transport/load bearing wheels.
6H - On the 6' hydraulic unit the transport/load bearing wheels are much larger air filled tires to enable better floatation due to the added weight of the unit & capacity.
All transport/load bearing tires have high quality replaceable bearings, hubs & spindles for long service life.
Pin Hitch & Jack:
The pin hitch and jack are designed to make connecting to a tow vehicle easy. It also enables easy and safe storage. Jack is not needed and not included with ground drive units.
Hydraulic Powered System: (If equipped)
Offering 1,000 lbs per square inch of power, this system rotates the shredder drum and agitator bar and offers a variety of advantages over ground-driven systems. On/Off spread control from the seat of the tow vehicle. Continues to spread while being operated up and down hill. Works in snowy and icy conditions. Performance does not diminish as the load lightens.

"I am very pleased with the 6' hydraulic Elite Spreader thus far. It is well built and very effective for the work of spreading manure for the 55-60 horses we keep here. I personally have the job of using the machine and do so every other day to keep up with the horses. Others who work for us clean up twice a day and stockpile the material and I can take care of two days worth in under an hour. It is great not to have to stockpile the manure and arrange to have it hauled off site. - Kevin From California
