We purchased a new manure spreader from Studer Super Service. It’s a Kuhn/Knight Slinger 8114. It’s basically the newer model of our twenty-year-old spreader we junked this winter. I want this one to last twenty years. We paid $14,500 for it.
The auger on the right moves the material backwards as the auger on the left moves the material frontwards and to the side-unloading door. The beaters, pictured below, sling the manure into the field.
I’m excited to use it. We have two hoop buildings to clean out, and several hay feeding areas. I want to cover the corn fields with a light layer of manure before corn planting. April is going to turn into May, fast.
