The DSC-6000 Drop Spreader is built to last with quality stainless steel. This re-designed and updated unit is sure to be a long standing fixture on your farm.

Different Uses:

  • Fertilizer
  • Sand
  • Lime
  • Salt
  • Cover crops
  • Other materials

The DSC-6000 is the mid-sized drop spreader from Conestoga Manufacturers. This model is perfect for taking care of a medium sized yard, small farmette, snow removal treatment, or doing landscaping or lawn care on the side.

The 60” long hopper can hold up to 9 cubic feet of product. This drop spreader is sturdy enough to handle lime and precise enough to spread fertilizer. It is truly versatile in its applications and its year-round usage ability.

The DSC 6000’s wide tires minimize tracks or ruts on turf or other specialized surfaces. Smaller than the DSC-7200, the 6000 is easy to pull with any ATV, UTV, lawn mower, or compact tractor. It operates off of a reliable ground drive system so all you have to do is hook it up and start driving. It comes equipped with a fully closing lid to keep moisture out and product in.

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.
