Frequently asked questions

Our Model Comparison Chart provides a detailed comparison between all of our spreader models.

Standard Series spreaders (100 Series, 200 Series) are ideal from 1 up to 8 stalls and have our patented drum attached directly to the hopper. The Heavy-duty Series spreader (Model 350-HD) is ideal for 1-10+ stalls and has a heavy-duty aluminum frame which the hopper and drum attach directly to. The heavy-duty frame provides strength for the added capacity, increases maneuverability, rigidity, durability and smoothness.

The Model 100 spreader comes with a fixed relief panel. The holes are 3/4" in diameter and cannot be adjusted. If your spreading material consistency or bedding changes throughout the year, we recommend taking a look at the Model 125 spreader with the adjustable relief panel. The adjustable relief panel gives you the ability to adjust the spreader to your type of material.

    For example, with the adjustable relief panel:
  • Dryer/finer or smaller material may benefit from decreasing the size of the openings
  • Heavy wet or larger material may benefit from increasing the size of the openings

Both Models are recommended for 1-4 stalls. They come standard with an aluminum hopper, agitator, flat-free tractor tread tires, 1 year warranty, and our patented single aluminum drum assembly. All Newer Spreaders are low maintenance, light weight and easily pulled with a golf cart, ATV or garden tractor.

Just fill the Newer Spreader® with fresh manure and bedding from the stall or from your composted manure pile and drive to where you want to spread. The Newer Spreader® can be easily pulled with a lawn tractor, golf cart, ATV or tractor. There is an engagement lever on each wheel. When ready just give each a gentle kick to engage. Now the patented drum will turn with the wheels as you drive. As the drum turns, the manure is passed through the relief panel which crumbles the material and is dropped in a 3 foot wide path. The Newer Spreader® can discharge the manure-bedding going forward or in reverse. In about 200-300 feet, it is emptied and you are finished! Its the crumbling of the manure that helps it decompose so quickly.
Watch our videos to see the Newer Spreader in action.

All Newer Spreader® models can be easily pulled by a lawn tractor, golf cart, or ATV. We typically recommend using any vehicle with about 10-15 HP and can reach speeds of at least 5 MPH.
