If you own livestock and land, you know that it takes a special kind of commitment to fulfill your daily responsibilities. It requires a financial, emotional, and time commitment to properly care for the animals and land that you own. And one of the most time consuming and relentless responsibilities you have is properly managing and disposing of the manure that is daily left behind by your livestock. At ABI Equine, we believe that properly managing your horses manure is more than just mucking the stalls. We know that the machine and methods used to dispose and spread the manure is critical to your daily operations and the health of your horses and pastures. The ABI large platform and PTO classic spreaders are the most uncompromising and capable commercial ag manure spreaders in the world. And we can proove it. With ease of use, servicability, and safety built in by design, the Classic PTO spreader offers standard features such as 10 gauge Cor-10 steel, a fully welded box frame construction, four-speed variable flow control, multiple beaters for both shredding and spreading, a protective box liner, and poly lumber flooring. And, our spreaders come with three assurances in writing. A money back guarantee, a two year mechanical and construction warranty, and a lifetime poly lumber flooring warranty. From the ground up, the ABI Classic Spreader is truely superior.
So let’s take a closer look at this commercially designed spreader. The foundation of our spreaders is a fully welded box made from corrosive-resistant 10 gauge Cor-10 steel. This steal will not allow rust to penetrate and will stand up to the corrosion that destroys our competitor’s spreaders. The fact that we take the time to strengthen our box by welding it instead of bolting it, shows that we care about durability and longevity of your investment. Far too often, livestock owners are replacing their manure spreaders because they simply won’t last. But with the ABI large platform spreaders, you will get a machine that is commercially built, weighs three times that of our competitors, and it’s stocked full of components that are vastly superior to any on the market today. Unlike most competitors, the 85 and the 125 ABI Classic PTO spreaders feature the ability to control the flow rate of manure being applied to the ground with four different speeds. And the 185 cubic capacity spreader has a hydraulically controlled apron chain. Speeding up or slowing down the apron way accomplishes flow control that feeds manure to the back beaters, independent of the ground speed. The speeds are adjusted by the front lever or the tractor’s hydraulics, and enables the operator to either empty the manure as fast as possible or apply controlled amount of manure to specific areas to maximize its fertilizer value.
This variable flow control also enables the ABI spreader to handle cattle manure, and that of other livestock as well. And having four speeds encourages an eco-balanced pasture by enabling a slow manure feed rate and a higher beater spin rate for fine shredding and spreading.
The cornerstone features of the ABI classic spreader, are the inline and top shredder bars, which come standard on every large platform spreader we offer. These bars provide a knifing action that shreds every square foot of manure before it hits the widespread beaters. Unlike our competitor’s empty promises, these shredder bars actually provide the first line of defense against large manure clumps.
This process is an incredible benefit to your pastures and horses. By spreading a fine, thin layer of manure on your pasture, the UV rays of the sun will break down the manure faster than if large clumps are left laying around.
The bottom flooring of the ABI spreader is constructed of extremely thick tongue and groove, polyvinyl lumber that will never rot, rust or need replaced. This is a premium maintenance-free flooring that will last and comes standard with a limited lifetime warranty. Finally, the advanced PTO system of the ABI large platform spreaders is second to none. As long as your tractor has a 540 RPM PTO, then the ABI classic PTO models can provide the highest level of performance. The ABI PTO driven spreader is ideal for extremely heavy loads, where extra power may be needed or on terrain that is not conducive to good ground traction. Extremely rough or hilly terrain, snow, ice, or even soft wet land is no problem for the PTO-driven, ABI manure spreader.
These spreaders also tread lightly on pastures as they use flotation tires instead of add-traction tires. The ABI PTO spreaders do not use belts because those typically stretch, slip, or wear out quickly. Instead, commercial drive chains connect the PTO shaft to the gearboxes, and a breakdown preventative shear bolt protects moving parts in the event the spreader is abruptly jammed.
Because ABI equines sells directly to you and not through dealers, we were able to design a manure spreader that would normally cost 30 percent more. But it doesn’t. And you get a manure spreader that you can count day in and day out. You have a commitment to your livestock and land, and ABI’s commitment to you is that our spreader is better, safer, and will last a whole lot longer.
