Poultry litter home made tractor trailer frame.  Completely hydraulic operated with self contained tanks and pump.  As nutrient management has dictated we haul manure to further fields away from the poultry litter houses, this homemade spreader works well.  Capacity is about 15 tons of litter per trip.  It does need to be fairly dry to use this spreader but the turn rows are easy for a tractor trailer.
