Yes! COR-TEN® steel, the brand used on Conestoga Manure Spreaders, is weathering steel developed specifically to help steel increase resistance to atmospheric corrosion.
Conestoga Manure Spreaders use COR-TEN® Steel to extend the life span of each unit. COR-TEN® Steel resists the corrosive effects of rain, snow, ice, fog and other weather conditions and reduces costly issues related to rust. COR-TEN creates a protective coating (a form of rust) that slows the rate of future corrosion.
By purchasing a manure spreader that includes COR-TEN, particularly on the main body, your spreader will last longer and hold up to the elements better than one that does not. Every Conestoga Manure Spreader model is made of COR-TEN except for the E-25.
