Ground Driven Manure Spreader
The CM-50 is a ground-drive manure spreader for your ATV, UTV, or compact tractor. This ground-drive manure spreader doesn’t require any PTO to operate since the wheels provide the power to the apron chain and spreader-beater.
This is the larger model ground drive manure spreader made by Conestoga. It features heavy-duty, welded construction, epoxy paint, and vinyl floorboards. The CM-50 features a 50 cu. ft. spreader box.

key features & benefits
Conestoga Manure Spreaders flooring is made of recycled plastic, similar to many floor boards used in decks / patios. Our poly flooring greatly increases the life of the spreader and also helps with smoother unloading and more resistance to freezing.
New Lever Design
Our levers are designed with the user in mind. The ground drive unit comes standard with 2 levers. When facing the unit the right lever operates the beater, with a smooth lifting action it will lift the chain off of the main drive sprocket. The left lever operates the apron chain with 3 different speeds for you to choose from. This design allows you to control the amount of manure you wish to apply.
Replaceable Rooster Comb Paddles
All Conestoga Spreaders come with 12 replaceable beater paddles. Each paddle comes with 5 cutting teeth for a total of 60 cutting edges on the main beater, not counting the pulverizing bar. The top pulverizing bar comes with 36 cutting teeth which are setup similar to a rototiller. This system is sure to shred and pulverize material before spreading.
Welded COR-TEN Steel
Spreader Models C-25 through C-80 come standard with 12 Gauge COR-TEN steel. Spreader Models 125 & 175 are manufactured using 10 Gauge COR-TEN steel. COR-TEN steel is a highly anti-corrosive steel and has up to 4 times the corrosion resistance of traditional steel. COR-TEN is used in mainly high coressive applications such as bridges, power plants, and towers. Our welded boxes are sure to give you years of maintenance free use. All our spreaders come with a 10 Year frame and box warranty
4 Part Painting Process
Our high qulaity COR-TEN steel is phosphatized and washed with a 3000 PSI hot pressure washer. The first coating is a two part epoxy primer. The final coat is a two-part premium paint designed for farm equipment.

I’ve owned several of the “big name” manure spreaders, but the Conestoga spreader is by far the best. It has a much better design, more durable parts, and a very reasonable price. My other spreaders couldn’t handle spreading manure mixed with hay, but the Conestoga spreads it quickly and easily.

I have been running my own business for 30 years, and I have been very pleased with both the manure spreader that I purchased, as well as the very professional and reasonable servicing Conestoga does for me once or twice a year. These are honest good people that do a great job with their business.

Conestoga is by far the best spreader out there. After 2 years of continuous use, it works perfectly. I would match the Conestoga against any out there.
