Description: Technical Report
Abstract: An equipment report on manure spreaders is provided as Section 8.3.2 of the US Army Corps of Engineers Wildlife Resources Management Manual. The report is designed to assist the Corps District or project biologist with the selection and use of types of equipment and materials available for habitat development and manipulation. Topics covered include description, operation and maintenance, limitations, and availability. Manure spreaders are modified single- and dual-axle trailers designed to apply manure and other organic solids to the soil. They are widely used for agriculture and reclamation where soils need more intensive renovation than can be provided by single tillage and inorganic amendments. Management objectives for using manure spreaders are stated, and applications to habitat development projects are discussed. The design and assembly of equipment are described and illustrated, and general specifications are provided. Methods of operation are described, and maintenance and safety requirements are given. Appropriate cautions and limitations are discussed.
