My home made manure spreader.  I use in parades and shows.  It doesn't throw manure, but it has ground driven beaters that move when hauling it. Have had a lot of fun with it.  Made it 5 years ago. Painted the letters and numbers myself.  Hope you get a laugh out of it.   Noel

Very nice!

We have an implement dealer in town that goes to a lot of local parades and has an old manure spreader with a sign on the back of it saying, "This is one piece of equipment we don't stand behind"!

The village mayor used to ask me to pull him in the town parades.  I always declined because hauling my grand kids had a higher priority.  He finally quit asking when I told him the only way I would haul a politician would be in a manure spreader!  :D  :D

 

 

that's a good looking outfit you made. :thumbs:   Hope it brings a lot of pleasure.  Rick

well I wouldn't laugh at it, as I've been toying with the idea of building a working DB version of a spreader. Got some of the parts and sprockets lined just trying to figure out what wheel/tire to go with it. I 'm leaning on going with and axil that uses a 5x12 ag tire, and building what would look similar to the wooden hauling cart that were found with the walking tractors. I would be pulling it with one of t he Suburbans.

Yes, politicians were a lot of the fun with it. People would ask which or how many politicians would it take to fill it up. But I would get caught some times talking to a politician about filling it, and not knowing they were a politician, oops, but it was all in fun. Noel

And surprisingly, it seemed that just as many children and woman liked it. A lot of the older men would watch it in a parade, and you could all most tell they were remembering the old days. Noel
