Simply Works Better

The easy-to-engage levers and pull-ropes, 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!

Limited Warranty

3 Year / Lifetime

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 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.

PTO Manure Spreader, 50 cu ft – Small Manure Spreader Beater Bar

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.

PTO Manure Spreader, 50 cu ft – Small Manure Spreader 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.

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

PTO Manure Spreader, 125 cu ft – Horse Manure Spreader Fines 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.

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.

Manure Spreader, Horse Manure Spreader

Corrosion-Resistant Steel

We start with extremely thick 12 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.

Spreader 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.

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.

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 then applied. Unlike powder-coating, this paint is easy to repair and touch-up and moisture cannot get behind it which eliminates the possibility of rust forming under the finish layer.

    Awesome. Excellent construction and ease of use. Highly recommend and we definitely shopped every brand out there.

  2. Mark Tenniswood

    I’ve had unit almost 1 year, very happy with it, easy to handle in the barn, pulls nicely with 500cc four wheeler

  3. Garald gingrich

    It is a great spreader. Perfect for a 1025r John Deere it’s great for small gardens

  4. David

    Great Little Spreader. Purchased the 50 PTO Classic Spreader about 4 months ago. Perfect spreader for a small horse farm and makes quick work of manure disposal. Dosen’t spread a wide swath but does a good job of breaking up any clumps. Used it with shavings and straw bedding without any problems. It’s well built and with a little maintenance and periodic washing I expect it to be the last manure spreader I’ll need to buy. I did considerable research before buying and don’t think you’ll find a better spreader for the price.

  5. Monique Bernardo, Highpoint Farm

    We love ours! I wish we bought it sooner. We love this spreader. I’d had a bigger one, for years, and used it until it was “non-repairable”. I decided to go with a smaller one, as we were never able to fit the whole barn in. This one does 13 stalls, easily. I, highly, recommend the “pan” that you lift up when spreading that prevents the flyover manure 🙂 IT’s easy to spray out and clean because of the bed liner material. The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is I am still getting used to the chain mechanism. All of the spreaders, in the past, when you engage PTO, beaters and chain start to move. This has a separate set-up. You pull PTO, beaters move, then you pull a cord for the chain. Occasionally, that spring gets stuck. It’s not a big deal and there is no problem with the integrity of the spreader but it has taken some getting used to. Because of the sensitivity with the pull cord/ spring combo, I’m hesitant to let anyone else empty the spreader for me. It’s probably just getting used to new things, but it was a bit frustrating in the beginning. All
