This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in July of 2019. If you have livestock on your property and want a productive way to handle their waste, these spreaders can turn their filth into valuable fertilizer. Whether pulled behind a tractor, truck, or ATV, they'll distribute nutrient-rich manure all over your lawn or fields to help nourish plants. Don't interfere with one while it's in operation, though, as that could lead to serious injury. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best manure spreader on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

July 26, 2019:

The models on this list are designed to be used with larger chunks of manure; if you're hoping to use finer, more pulverized fertilizer, then a broadcast spreader might be a better choice for your purposes.

Most of the items on the list are on the smaller side, making them perfect for mom-and-pop farming operations or domestic use. As such, most can be pulled by ATVs, lawnmowers, and other small vehicles.

One thing to be aware of before making your purchase is what kind of hitch you'll need to pull it. Many come with drop-pin hitches but have ball attachments available; however, you'll likely want to order the attachment at the same time, so do your due diligence before putting down your credit card.
