A Crappy Day--The Good Kind!
Our instructions from ABI said to have a tractor with a loader ready to help unload our new toy because it was too big for the lift gate alone to handle. So Herb fastened a strap to it and helped the driver let it down.
ABI Classic Manure Spreader! Ours is the 50G, meaning it is ground-driven (the blades turn as it drives over the ground without having to be hooked up to a tractor's PTO drive) and it holds 50 cu.ft. of manure. This is not a lot as full-size manure spreaders go, but it is perfect for us. It would take us all winter to fill a gigantic manure spreader, and then our tractor wouldn't be able to pull it! This one will be light enough to be pulled by our riding mower, will cause less damage to wet ground, and will be more maneuverable.
Stay tuned for a photographic demonstration . . .
What a lovely, doubly crappy day!
