Notch Plate and Tongue Installation
Some ABI Ground Drive Spreaders require Notch Plate and/or Tongue Installation after arrival. Tongue installation will require two people for easy installation. Detailed instructions are found in the video above.
You will find these notch plates attached to the tongue of the spreader that is found inside the bed (see below pictures). The notch plate with 5 slots attaches onto the left side and the notch plate with 2 slots attaches to the right side.

End Gate and Fines Pan
The optional manual end gate can be purchased to help prevent manure from flowing to the back while in its down position. While the end gate is in the up position you can protect yourself slightly from the rogue manure being flown forwards occasionally.
The optional fines pan helps collect the manure that did not get put through the spreader which then would fall to the ground.
