If you have poo to spread, looks like the tool for the job!

My neighbor has one he uses to dispose of his horse chips. Pulls it with an 816 Gravely rider. He LOVES that thing. Bought it used about five years ago with nary a problem yet.

Just have to be picky on what you try to spread with it.  Heavy wet stuff the belt will slip or the wheels will slide.  Stuff like horse chips or  fine wood mulch bedding , etc would probably work fine.  The speed of the beater is governed by the ground speed.  Have to go fast to keep the beater spinning and my have to go over the area twice to get it covered good.  Just my opinion and experience from a neighbor that had one.  Borrowed my Kelly

Ryan PTO drive to get the job done.

Would think might be useful for Site here, to dispose of the info put on here daily!  Hee! :bigrofl: I never understood why those things cost so much, even the old ones that need rebuild. Tins and metal go bad fast with the ACID in the poo, that is why so many are Wooden, to last longer. This one looks all Galvanized metal, wonder if any better?  I bet even if you took the time to rinse out each run, the wet stuff would leak down into the fine joints and cracks and not be any better, maybe worse?  BUT......never having to do such work, maybe is a great tool to have? I use one of these. :toilethead:

Well, for the full story behind when my neighbor got his manure spreader. As usual with his new purchases, there was "the viewing". This is where I stand there for a half hour, without getting a word in edge wise, and listen to the riveting story of the purchase and the tremendous capabilities and quality of said machine. After he was finally done, I said what a nice machine it was and how I just couldn't understand why he didn't purchase one years ago. "But why would I buy one then, I didn't have a horse?" "True enough" I said, "but you were still full of $h*t."

Remember, that a Farmall cub was only around 9hp.  I have seen those small spreaders, would work good behind the larger GT's and Super GT's   Mike
