    Default Need your help identifying this Manure Spreader

    I bought this spreader as my summer fix up project. However, I have no idea the make, model or manufacturer. Any help would be appreciated.

    It is ground driven, wood sides/bottom and T65 links.

    No clue about the manufacturer but the tire is on backwards. Looks like a fun project [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Also no clue to the manufacture. But that new tongue kack sure looks out of place on it.

    The tire is not on backwards; when the wheel supplies the power "up" to the mechanism ( the webbing and beaters in this case) that is the way the lugs face. When the motor/axle is rotating the tire, i.e., the power is going"down"and the lugs face the usual or opposite way. I'm not really sure of the physics involved but wheels that drive mechanisms are set up as such.
    I think it is an International Harvester- the Farmall people.

    Exactly, but the tires on that spreader are "facing" the same way as my tractor tires. As a ground driven implement, it should be the opposite [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Yep, according to <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.millcreekmfg.com/index.cfm?ProductID=2&amp;do=detail>this picture</A> at Mill Creek Mfg, the tires are on backwards.

    Don't know the manufacturer. I think old manure spreaders make the best tractor trailers. I'm looking for one in Texas that I can strip the "spreading" parts off of and use as a catchall trailer. I feel they are safe enough for Mom and the little helpers to ride in with their relatively high sides and they are great for a load of firewood, etc.

    Hans,

    That's a great idea. However, I am looking to spread about 30 tons of manure. The spreader is functional, I would just prefer that it stay that way for the next 10 seasons or so.

    If you want it to last for a long time (ten seasons), then be careful not to run it too fast. Think of it as a horse drawn spreader, and go about that speed. Finding broken parts will (may) be tough, if a cast part breaks. In the winter, don't let manure freeze in it. Fill it with warm manure, spread it right away, and clean it up after spreading, before anything gets a chance to build up. Oil it up well, and keep the bearings greased. It looks in pretty good shape, without much rust (best as I can see by the pictures).

    I remember as a boy, driving too fast (road gear) coming back from spreading a load. The cast cams (I think there were three lobes) used to advance the bed slats broke, and it wasn't worth much after that. As poor as we were, this didn't do my father any favors.
