Did they ever make a small manure spreader? Where might I look for one that isn't trashed? Or should I just go find a new one? Friend is asking for help. Thanks.

For what it's worth--------I have a refurbished manure spreader you can buy.

It's a McCormick IHC, Mod 30. It's 15 bu. larger than a Mod 200, and a few years
newer. Ground-drive, excellent tires, and "as good as new". Many extra parts with
it if you want them---no extra cost. I live in southeast Nebraska. Asking $650.00. Martin

Sorry, I guess my idea of small was a little vague. The plan is to pull it with a pickup until a tractor is bought. The manure coming from the neighbors and being spread on about 3 acres. I'll forward the link and tell him to keep an eye on Craigslist.

Thank you.

A pickup in any gear is going to be too fast to use a spreader, 5 MPH is top speed for use with 15 MPH top road travel speed. Now for small spreaders the IHC-McCormick No. 100 was smallest ever built at 35 bushel size, then the Dearborn and I think an Oliver variant was about 50 Bushel. Several models of 60 bushel size made but were mostly horse drawn on steel, one of that size that was tractor spreader on rubber was the B F Avery. Now then the next size upwould be about a 75 bushel size with the Deere H and L being in that catagorie. The L was designed the same as the R spreader and were of a different drive style that could handle more speed but still not what a truck would have even in 4 wheel drive low range. The Deere R was the largest and last ground drive spreader built at 90 bushel with the Deere N being a PTO powered spreader at 115 bushel size. The new spreadersI am not familuar with but some are made for use with a large riding mower tractor. I know of a shop that builds new ground drive spreaders and the owners are friends of mine.

Is the floor sweep mechanism ground driven like some fertilizer gondolas you rent? As stated, my slinger is ground driven but the floor sweep is PTO driven.

That is about the best shredding spreader ever built and is definitely a "small" spreader. $550 is an absolute bargain if it's in great shape.

I don't know what you mean by small. I bought a JD Model N probably 20 years ago at an auction house, but also sold direct for roughly $750 best I can remember. It had a board rotted out up front on the end but that wasn't part of the hopper so no biggie. The Ladder chain had a broken/missing link and a horizontal bar was bent but TSC stocked ladder chains and I straightened the bar. The tires were F1s (since the chain that sweeps the product to the rear is ground driven) OEM, cracked like you wouldn't believe but hold air....years at a time without topping off......amazing as this thing was probably built back in the 60's.

Greased it up good and away I went. When I had cows I picked up hay ring residue (FEL-bucket) and spread it on the haypatch where I plant S-Sudan and it gets steel on it annually turning it in. I also have a lot of trees and this time of year I lawn vac the leaves and pile them up. Prior to plowing that patch in the spring, I put the leaves on the field via that poop-slinger. Works great.

If I have leftover/rotted hay, I dump it in there and put it on the field also.

Now that I have it I wouldn't be without it!

Where to find a used one? Try Facebook Marketplace or Craigs list. For a new one A local company builds them and they are a much better spreader than the farm store units.

You really need to define what you mean by "small". There are tiny little spreaders you can pull with an ATV or garden tractor but they don't work on actual barnyard manure, just horse poop in wood shavings type bedding. If all it's got is a single beater, it's more of a manure unloader than a manure spreader. New Idea, IHC, etc made small spreaders that would actually work but that was 40-50 years ago. There are some Amish outfits making small spreaders, but they aren't cheap!

all depends on what they want,, I see way too many spreaders destroyed by horse people who load it for a week then try to unload it after sitting with a load on it,, for what the older spreaders bring if I was a horse person who needed one I would look at one like this, H&S also makes a nice one I have seen a good number of around here,, for the price for this one I would be hard pressed to recommend a well used 40-60 year old spreader for more money,, me I like the old equipment and can run and repair them if necessary,, most people today who want one have no clue about them so when I sold equipment these are what i advised on,, I sold H&S which was a bit more money than this link as

Millcreek makes a line of small spreaders . The key is what do you want to pull it with. I would only go for a PTO Spreader but that takes a tractor with a live PTO. A new spreader is $5000 and you can buy a good used spreader for $1000. For example I have an old new idea PTO spreader. It is really ugly but it works well. Had it on craigslist for $750 and didnít sell it. On an old spreader everything is fixable except the gearbox. And maybe some of the guys can rebuild a gearbox... I canĎT. .. or donít want .

Let me add a comment about using a spreader. My spreaders (yes I have 3) are used mainly in the winter, because that is when the horses are in the barn the most. I unload a spreader load about every other day, so about 200 loads a year. I have multiple spreaders because if I only had one, and it broke, down I would be in big trouble quickly. Horses need clean stalls daily. When I see a spreader go through an auction at a bargain price, I buy it. All 3 are old, about 100 bushel spreaders, all bought for under $1000. The oldest has worked well for 17 years.

Our weather in Kentucky is at its worst in the winter, not snow or ice or frozen ground..it is 3 months of Mud Mud MUD. Guess what. If I take a ground drive spreader and tractor into my fields in the winter I will destroy the sod and make ruts that will be there for years. So I use only PTO spreaders which I off load into a holding area. That would not be a problem in Arizona but it sure is here. If you are in a situation where the manure can accumulate until you have perfect weather, then you can use a ground drive spreader.

If you are buying a spreader for horses, Billy in NY, could share his experiences and insights.

I guess you have to define small. The older spreaders were small by todays standards but I have seen real small new ones that would pull with a ATV. Do you want ground driven or PTO. Most of the older ones are junk but occasionally you can find one that is fixable and have a good machine for not a lot of money. If they had a wooden body sometimes new wood is all it takes to get one back in working condition. I have a NI pto driven spreader that I paid $100 for and the new wood came with it.
