    Any experience with small Frontier manure spreader?

    And if so, I've just gotta ask, are you covered with flying s*it by the time you're done? After spending a ridiculous sum of money on fertilizer last year for renovating a section of pasture and our yard, I realize I HAVE fertilizer! Appropriate for yard use or just pasture? It's fabulous in my veggie and flower beds. Have just never really had the ability to use it for growing good grass.

    I'm sure someone on here has one of these little one's, cause no matter what u show on here , someone has had it, or knows of someone. a good place to look is u-tube, that would give u a good action shot of it, and of course see if their covered in horse or cow, or whatever they might be spreadin' around and welcome from south western PA.

    I'm not sure what size your referring to, I have an ABI 50 cu.ft. and I almost think it's too small. It takes me a lot of trips to knock down the manure pile, but it gets the job done. They threw in the end gate on mine which is suppose to help keep the manure off you. Every once in awhile you will get a tap on the shoulder, but it's not bad. I will say something I figured out the first time out, plan all your passes INTO the wind

    Have you had the soil tested? It may just be a PH issue (usually on the acidic side). A good dose of lime in the Fall will usually take care of it and not extremely expensive.

    Spreading is fun, IMO.
    Stablenickers, What model are you looking at?

    I sure have. Problem is pasture was almost non-existent when I bought the place. Nothing but some outrageously compacted dirt (no joke it's like concrete) growing patches of weeds and more dirt in between. We have sectioned off a full third of the pasture, killed weeds, killed weeds again, tilled and planted fescue. Now, we're babying it...including fertilizer to give it a really good start before horses can enter that area again come fall. Then pasture rotation is the plan.

    Your point is well taken though and a good reminder that I should do another soil test and adjust pH again soon.

    ok, looks like you are on the right path. Didn't realize the pasture was so hard packed.

    A good dose of fertilizer will help out. You can also find someone selling mushroom soil to till in and help speed up the process of rejuvenation.

    Just curious if you've priced out the Frontier spreaders and a ballparks idea of what they get for them?

    I've been looking at the Millcreek spreaders because I want something fairly small. Just curious how they compare price-wise.

    I put mushroom compost in my vegetable garden just didn't cross my mind to till it into the pasture. The poor horses. You should see them hanging heads over the electric line wanting into the reworked area!
