We have been very pleased with the 85 we use it weekly to spread our stall clean outs for over a year and it has been very durable and does and excellent job. we have had no issues would buy again.

Purchased not quite a year ago, no problems whatsoever. We use a 25 hp compact tractor, and it is perfectly acceptable for this application. We have three horses, and fill the spreader about every 7-8 days. Since it gets to be well below zero here, we don’t leave manure in the spreader. Obviously, when manure is frozen it does not get broken up finely, but it does indeed leave the spreader! We do keep a tarp over it when not in use – again due to freezing weather (or hot sun in the summer). Four bungie cords and a 2×4 the long way over the top sheds both snow and rain quite well.

Excellent quality. For the past 50+ years we have used a 110 bushel New Idea ground driven spreader, designed exactly like this spreader. Exactly the same beater configuration and the same drive ratios. We have many skeleton dinosaur versions of the New Idea that have been used for parts to keep one running. Last year we purchased this spreader. I can say without a doubt that this is the best money I have ever spent on farm equipment. Quality everything. Heavy duty and I would easily have spent much more to get this quality. About the only thing I did was replace many of the grease fittings with angled one so that I could easily get to all of them. I also added a small piece of steel to cover the very back gear on the distributer bar better. We use a 60 year old Farmall 200 (25hp new) and it drives this loaded spreader like a dream. We absolutely must have the top beater bars for our manure, and none of the other brand spreaders, in this class, provided that.

I just received my 85 cubic ft spreader this morning and was very impressed with the workmanship of this product. I won’t get to actually use it till next week because of all the rain we’ve had. I was really hesitant to purchase sight unseen and it took me 3 months to make a decision. What made me decide yes was several things. First, my sales rep Casey was awesome. He was patient with me, didn’t push me, answered all my numerous questions, and helped me in every way possible. Plus he has a cool sense of humor which is important to me. Everyone I dealt with was awesome which sometimes is hard to come by. The guy that delivered it (Don and his wife) were also very awesome. It took about 3 minutes for him to completely walk me through the operations of the equipment; the off load was so fast and easy. My dealings for 3 months A-Z has been a totally great experience. Thanks to all at ABI for the Manure Spreader, 85 ft PTO.

I purchased the 85 cf pto driven spreader 2 weeks ago. I purchased it sight unseen based solely on the build quality of abi’s TR3 Equine edition grader which I purchased last year. I was not surprised the quality of materials and workmanship were outstanding. The spreader works perfectly as I expected. The unit has some very nice features including a synthetic plank floor that should never rot, heavy duty steel box and gear mechanism, adjustable speed (from the cab of the tractor) feeder chain and 3 shredding/dispersing beater bars.
The price was comparable to other similar sized spreaders from the other major manufacturers.
I am very happy with the unit and would recommend it to others
