Compact Manure Spreader

CM-50 Compact Manure Spreader

The CM-50 is a compact manure spreader that operates with a ground drive system. You can easily haul this compact manure spreader with an 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 stainless steel apron chain and spreader beaters.

This spreader is larger than the CM-25 atv manure spreader which is the other available ground drive model from Conestoga. Conestoga Manure Spreaders are built in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and designed by people who know spreaders.

The CM-50 features heavy-duty, welded construction, epoxy paint, and poly-vinyl floorboards. We’ve built our ground drive and PTO spreaders to last through years of regular use so that you can get your work done without extra hassle from cheap equipment. The CM-50 features a 50 cu. ft. spreader box made out of Cor-Ten steel. Contact us today for a free quote on one of these impressive compact manure spreaders.

CM-50 Compact Manure Spreader


The CM-50 compact manure spreader was designed and built for regular use. This spreader offers 2x the capacity of the CM-25 ATV manure spreader. It is ideal for 5-11 horses and is capable of spreading any kind of manure. Hobby farmers and horse enthusiasts love this spreader and its capabilities and features. 

The floorboards of this compact manure spreader are polyvinyl and guaranteed not to rot. The beater features 12 rooster comb paddles with individual, replaceable paddles. It is all-wheel drive to ensure that you continue spreading even when turning. This spreader’s build features stainless steel for a few of the moving components like the T-Rod Chain, rods, and apron chain.

Regardless of your application, if you need a compact manure spreader that is ground driven but has a decent capacity (heaped capacity is 50 cu. ft. of manure) then this is the spreader for you.

Stainless Steel Apron Chain

The main apron chain is a common area for some ground driven manure spreaders to have problems. If an apron chain isn’t stainless steel you can count on them failing within 7-10 years of purchase. Conestoga’s Stainless Steel Apron Chains will literally never rust through. Our apron chains will keep your spreader running well and out of the repair shop.

Box Construction

The box of our compact manure spreader is built from long-lasting 12-gauge COR-TEN steel for extra corrosion resistance.

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.
