    Spreader for 1025r - Best Brands and Costs

    I am looking to purchase a Manure type Spreader for compost and dirt across my 2 acre yard and was wondering if anyone knows of a good brand and price for one. I have searched Google and found the companies "Conestoga" and "ABI Attachments", any other brands or watchouts (cost $2500 and up - kind of spendy)? Looking for between 30-50 cubic ft capacity and the ability to finely spread compost and dirt. Also which would you recommend Ground Drive or PTO?

    Any advice here would be greatly appreciated.

    I have no knowledge of brands but do have experience with use of spreaders. I like how ground drive units can be pulled by atv's, utv's, garden tractors, and your tractor but in my opinion the pto drive units give better results.

    I went through this about a year or two ago. Your basic flail spreaders most all work the same. As far as which brand, your going to have to decide on construction and size that best suits your needs. You mentioned spreading it finely. I would suggest looking at this one. Basic spreaders just fling it out, and even with all the paddles and choppers it still mostly puts the manure on the ground whole, just spread out. I have no experience with the Newer Spreader but it looks to me that it would do a better job of grinding up the manure rather than flinging it out the back. It's smaller than a lot of the other spreaders so you will have to make more trips, depending on your set-up.

    As far as brands I have the ABI 50P. I went with the PTO because...I have a PTO and why not use it. I have used it two season now and it has held up great with no complaints. I hose it out when finished and store it inside, so it should hold up for awhile. When you make a decision tell us what you chose.
