25, 50, & 65 ft³ Ground Drive Manure Spreader

ABI Manure Spreaders are America's best-selling compact manure spreaders with thousands of satisfied customers across the nation. The ABI 25, 50, & 65 cuft Ground Driven manure spreaders are ABI's small and compact platform manure spreaders that can be pulled by an ATV, UTV, small tractor, lawnmower, or utility golf cart; no PTO required!. (See specifications) ABI Manure Spreaders SHRED manure before they spread manure, making them uniquely designed for hobby farms and horse stables with limited pasture and paddock acreage to spread on. Shredding manure before spreading helps manure decompose far more quickly, ensuring healthy and thriving pasture lands by eliminating vegetation smothering clumps and building more fertile soil, increasing pasture turn rates, and reducing undesirable flies & odor around the farm. With ease of use, serviceability, and safety already built-in by design, the ABI Classic Manure Spreader offers standard features such as 12-gauge COR-TEN steel, fully welded box frame construction, 4-speed variable flow control, 2-stage two beater system for both inline shredding and spreading, ratcheting hubs, a protective box liner, and a lifetime poly-lumber floor. From the ground up, the ABI Classic Manure Spreader is truly a superior spreader for hobby farms and horse stables.

Ground Driven Manure Spreaders, 25, 50, & 65 cu ft – Compact Manure Spreaders Overview

Simply Works Better

The easy-to-engage levers, swing-away jack stand, durable apron chain, and safety bumper make the Classic Spreader by ABI a cinch to use. Dig a little deeper and you’ll find that it’s designed to not only be easier to use, but work better than any of the competition! Our innovative variable speed spread and shredding bars ensure a finer, better spread-every time-for a long time!

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, Commercial-Grade Coating AUE-370, 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

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!

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!

4-Speed Variable Flow Control

Unlike most competitors, all ABI Manure Spreaders feature the ability to control the flow rate of manure applied to the ground with four (4) different speeds. 4-speed flow control is accomplished by speeding up or slowing down the apron web that feeds manure to the back beaters in a variable ratio to ground speed. Having 4-speeds encourages an eco-balanced pasture by enabling a slow manure feed rate and a high beater spin rate for fine shredding and spreading. The speeds are adjusted via the front lever and enable the operator to either empty the manure as fast as possible or more slowly to apply a controlled rate of manure to maximize fertilizer value. Variable flow control also enables this spreader to handle a broader range of manure consistency to easily spread various livestock types, bedding materials, stages of decompositions, and weather, without causing damage or additional maintenance to the spreader.

Inline Shredding System - Shreds Before It Spreads

Unique to the industry, all ABI manure spreaders feature an inline manure shredding system with 32 blades that shreds manure before spreading a finely pulverized manure application to the ground. Shredding before spreading exposes more manure surface to ultraviolet sunlight, which reduces parasites and allows it to decompose far more quickly. Owning an ABI manure spreader with an inline shredding system and 4-speed variable flow control enables the horse owner to help maintain an eco-balanced pasture. An eco-balanced pasture or paddock can help reduce colic, increase pasture turn efficiency rates, help produce more vigorous grass growth, and reduce odor & flies around the farm. Shredding before spreading is critical when spreading manure on pastures or paddock areas.

Advanced Ground Drive System

Unlike many other spreaders, the ABI Manure Spreader provides constant power to the apron chain and beater bars via an advanced ground drive system, even during tight turns on rough pastures. When looking at the spreader control levers, the right wheel drives the rear beaters system, while the left wheel drives the apron chain. However, both wheels work in unison, similar to a locking differential on a truck, to maximize traction and prevent the apron and beaters from running at incompatible speeds, preventing damage. The ratcheting hubs enable the wheels to move in reverse, without turning the apron or beaters, protecting moving parts from damage, preventing the chain from jumping sprockets, and stopping manure from being thrown onto the tow vehicle and operator! This system allows ABI spreaders to spread in almost any condition, even on frozen ground!

Ground Driven Manure Spreaders, 25, 50, & 65 cu ft – Compact Manure Spreaders Jack Stand

Swing-Away Jack w/Wheel Dolly

The swing-away jack with wheel dolly makes manually maneuvering the spreader much more manageable, making quick work of connecting and disconnecting from a tow vehicle. It also enables the operator to manually push the spreader around a barn with a concrete floor.

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.

PTO Manure Spreader, 125 cu ft – Horse Manure Spreader

Corrosion-Resistant 12-Gauge Steel

ABI manure spreaders are built with extremely thick 12 gauge corrosion-resistant COR-TEN steel construction. Unlike most spreaders, the ABI manure spreader is a long-term “one-time” investment with a fully welded box frame, using thicker steel than other spreaders 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 Box Liner

All ABI manure spreaders include a box liner, no extra charge! The inside of the spreader body is coated with a Coal-Tar-Epoxy box 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 used to protect underground sewage tanks, pipelines, and the hulls of barges in salt water.

PTO Manure Spreader, 125 cu ft – Horse Manure Spreader Flooring

Lifetime Poly-Lumber Flooring

The bottom flooring is constructed of extremely thick tongue-and-groove polyvinyl lumber that will never rot, rust, or need replacing. Even better yet, the tongue-and-groove construction prohibits the individual poly-boards from warping, preventing excessive wear or damage to the apron web. This is a premium maintenance-free flooring that will last and comes standard with a limited lifetime warranty.

Superior-Quality Craftsmanship & Components

Built in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, by highly skilled craftsmen 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, serviceable 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 spreader’s 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!

Rustoleum

Commercial-Grade Coating (PPG AUE-370)

All steel components are sand-blasted before painting to prime for perfect adhesion. A special commercial-grade coating (PPG AUE-370), a black gloss acrylic urethane paint twice as thick as Rust-Oleum, is applied. Unlike powder-coating, this paint is easy to repair and touch up, preventing moisture or urine from getting behind it, eliminating the possibility of rust forming under the finish layer.

Ground Driven Manure Spreaders, 25, 50, & 65 cu ft – Compact Manure Spreaders End Gate

Manual End Gate & Shield

The Manual End Gate is designed to close off the back end of the manure spreader to prohibit manure from packing into the beaters. It also contains manure spillage on the barn aisle or during transport. The end gate is raised and lowered by hand and additionally serves to help shield the operator from flying manure while spreading.

Ground Driven Manure Spreaders, 25, 50, & 65 cu ft – Compact Manure Spreaders Fines Pan

Fines Pan - For Pastures

Ideal when spreading manure on pastures and paddocks, the fines pan ensures all manure is spread by preventing small manure fines from falling off the back of the spreader. All spreaders will drop some manure in a trail directly behind the spreader. The fines pan will prevent this and ensures all manure is broadcast evenly on the ground. The pan has a release for easy cleaning and is replaceable.

    Very difficult to get out of shipping crate. Not sure price is justified over the competition but I suppose time will tell. You can get 2 for the price of an ABI.
