Small Manure Spreader: The CM-25

Conestoga Manure Spreader’s model CM-25 is a ground-drive spreader designed for daily use on a smaller farm or ranch. The CM-25 manure spreader features a heaped capacity of 25 cubic feet and offers a smaller footprint of 49-3/4″ in width x 9′-10″ in length to make indoor storage of the spreader a breeze. This small manure spreader also includes a box height of 28″ which makes loading and unloading material an easy task for anyone.

Like all of our spreaders – the CM-25 is built to work as hard as you do with our 12 gauge COR-TEN steel construction and the use of a High-Density Polyvinyl 3/4″ tongue and groove floor. Combine those features with our 3/8″ Stainless steel T-Rod and 12 replaceable rooster comb beater paddles and you have a machine that will last for years.

Additional Options for the CM-25 include:

  • Fine Spread Pan
  • End Gate
  • Dolly Wheel Jack
  • Adjustable Hitch
  • Spreader Box Raptor Liner

Standard Features for the CM-25 include:

  • Top Beater Bar 
  • Stainless Steel Apron Chains 
  • Cor-Ten Steel Welded Box 

You can pull the CM-25 with ATVs, UTVs, Side by sides, garden tractors, small farm tractors, and even small trucks if needed. 

Remember that the CM-25 spreads off of a ground drive wheel system meaning that you do not need any PTO power to operate this small pull-behind manure spreader. It is a great machine for people with 1-5 horses. 

As the tiniest manure spreader from Conestoga, this spreader can be stored fairly easily in a barn or garage, or other outbuildings.

CM-25 Small Manure Spreader Overview 

The CM-25 ground-driven manure spreader from Conestoga Manufacturing has undergone a number of design improvements over the years. It has always been a 25 cubic foot at heaped capacity manure spreader with no PTO drive capabilities. It has always been the smallest manure spreader offered by Conestoga. It has always been for 1-5 horses or people with around that number of animals that they need to spread manure for. 

CM-25 Small Spreader Standard Features 

All of Conestoga’s manure spreaders whether ground driven or PTO driven come with lots of great standard features. Some of these standard features have been around for a long time and some have been added to the spreader as part of the base offering.

Stainless Steel Apron Chain

The CM-25, along with every other spreader from Conestoga, comes standard with a stainless steel apron chain. You don’t have to worry about rusting and failure when you get stainless steel.

Poly-Vinyl Floor Boards

Another feature of the CM-25 is the polyvinyl floorboards. We use this material in all our spreader beds to ensure that you never have to deal with rot. The polyvinyl material is impervious to manure and manure mixtures that you will spread.

Bolt-On Rooster Comb Beater Paddles

In the place of welded-on beater paddles, Conestoga installs bolt-on, rooster comb beater paddles. Our rooster comb paddles are aggressive for superior manure shredding and bolt-on for easy, do-it-yourself replacement should they go dull or break. 

Top Beater Shredder Bar 

The top beater bar that comes standard on both our CM-25 and CM-50 ground drive manure spreaders used to be an optional feature at an extra charge. But we have changed that to now be a standard feature that is equipped on each ground drive model. This bar enhances your spreader’s ability to spread evenly and effectively on every load. 

4 Adjustable Web-Speeds

The CM-25 offers 4 different spreading speeds. You can adjust from a light dusting to a heavy coating depending on your specific needs with this manure spreader. One simple speed control lever allows you to easily switch between spreading speeds. 

COR-TEN Steel Spreader Box 

With our smallest manure spreader, you get a spreader box made of 12-gauge COR-TEN steel. This spreader box construction fights off corrosion and rust more effectively than some other spreader box constructions. You get a more reliable life out of all our spreaders, even the CM-25!

CM-25 Small Spreader Optional Features 

In addition to the standard feature of this model, you have a number of optional features available to you as well. Conestoga Manufacturing offers the highest quality parts for optimal performance and longevity. You can choose any or all of these options to upgrade your small manure spreader investment with.

Dolly Wheel Jack 

The dolly wheel jack is a great optional feature to select for your small manure spreader. The adjustable height dolly wheel jack makes moving and storing your spreader easier. 

Fine Spread Pan

The fine spread pan is another optional feature for the CM-25. Opting for this upgrade will make your spreading better and your work easier! 

Spreader Box Raptor Liner

The raptor liner is a great upgrade to choose for your manure spreader investment. This protective coating will enhance the durability of your spreader box and help to further delay corrosion or rusting that it could experience over time. 

Manual End Gate

We know that the best place for your manure is on your pasture or field. Adding a manul end gate to your small manure spreader will help to ensure that your field is where your manure goes and not on you!
