Shipping Manure Spreaders

Manure Spreaders Shipping

Manure spreaders eliminate the need for manual labor when supplying the soil with nutrients on the fields. These can be chicken manure, animal manure, liquid manure, dry manure or other manure products. Having a machine for spreading manure enables you to focus on other parts of your agricultural business. However, you might have bought a new farm and need to ship your heavy farm equipment. DIY relocations are risky, so leave the work to a trusted carrier, such as A-1 Auto Transport. We can ship your farm spreader machine quickly and safely, regardless of the make and model.

Trailers for Transporting Manure Spreaders

When hauling your manure spreaders, you can choose from several types of trailers:

Flatbeds

The flatbed trailer is the most popular and versatile unit. It comes in various dimensions to accommodate different manure spreaders. Furthermore, it has a stable bed that allows for safe loading by securing the heavy equipment on the outer edges.

Removable Goosenecks

Removable gooseneck (RGN) trailers are another great option. As the name suggests, they have a removable front end your carrier can use for a ramp. There are also double-drop formations that let you transport high manure spreaders.

Extended RGNs

Like standard RGNs, extended RGNs have an extra section to accommodate particularly tricky heavy equipment. A carrier may use the extended version if the spreader is too long for regular RGNs. Manure spreaders come in different sizes from small manure spreaders to large ones. Extended RGNs are used together with ramps for heavy loads. They detach the rear end to create a ramp and load the machine more easily. For machines that are stuck during operation on the field, a forklift can be used to load them onto the trailer. You can also use drop deck trailers or a low boy to haul your driven manure spreaders. However, note that each trailer type has the max weight and max height capacity they can carry.

How Much Does Manure Spreader Shipping Cost?

Not every PTO manure spreader shipping job costs the same. The price depends on many factors:

  • Destination – The longer the journey, the more expensive your service will be. It also increases the number of places your carrier needs to visit. Additionally, the driver may face different rules and laws, which can postpone the delivery and raise the price.
  • Freight density – A larger size manure spreader will attract a higher shipping cost. Measuring the machinery beforehand is crucial, as it determines the suitable trailer. Besides the equipment, you also need to include packaging materials (e.g., pallets) to calculate the density accurately.
  • Delivery priority – Your provider will ask you when you want them to deliver your manure spreader. If your deadline is flexible, your transport will be more affordable.

How Do You Prepare Your Manure Spreader for Shipping?

Having your manure spreader shipped by a dependable company like A-1 Auto Transport minimizes the risk of damage. However, you can take additional action to protect your investment.

For instance, you may want to rustproof your heavy equipment if it'll be exposed to bad weather. There are several rustproofing methods:

  • Plating – Zinc and tin plating is a solution that offers a robust layer of protection from corrosion.
  • Galvanizing – Layers of steel and zinc reduce the chances of rust while preventing blemishes and dents during transport.
  • Painting – Some paints can safeguard your manure spreader from corrosion, depending on their composition.

Here's what else you should do before the transport:

  • Disconnect any power supplies
  • Remove shields or other attachments
  • Empty fluids
