Industry leading spread pattern in a 500 heaped cubic feet spreader.
Armstrong, Iowa: Art’s Way Manufacturing today announced the X500, a new manure spreader. The X500 is a 500 heaped cubic feet capacity manure spreader and offers a new way for small operation livestock producers to maximize benefits from livestock waste in their crop growth strategy.
Producers are looking for ways to be more efficient and profitable in their yards and fields. The X500 assists with those goals. Spend less time spilling material when filling with a load height of 74” when flotation tires are installed. Time tested beater and apron chain design create well processed material and even distribution in the field. This makes for quick absorption into your crop roots leading to increased yields.
“Down to the nitty gritty. The X500 spreader shares a great number of important features with the rest of the X-Series line while remaining cost conscious for the smaller operator in mind,” says Izac Roberts, Design Engineer at Art’s Way Manufacturing.
Features and benefits of the X500 Manure Spreader include:
Best spread pattern in the industry
Easily maneuver in your yard with a narrow single axle
Affordable price point for single operators
The X500 Manure Spreader will have limited availability this fall and pre-order starting October 19th, 2020 for Spring 2021 delivery.

Soil Erosion is the wearing away of soil from natural processes that are sometimes sped up by human influence. This usually occurs on construction sites (structural or roadway) and farm ground. This is because the earth is bare and is exposed to the elements such as water and wind.
Solid run off is the number one pollutant for surface waters. This is responsible for many problems in the water. When run off enters the waterways, it buries underwater vegetation directly affecting the entire food chain. Suspended soil particles also clog fish gills and other water machinery. Construction sites also use chemicals in their building and cleaning process that will enter the water through the erosion process. This impacts all wildlife.
Soil Erosion Prevention
There are a lot of actions to take for soil erosion prevention. Most of the these are work done to prep a site, adding wattles and logs to drains and high risk areas. These procedures set you up for success during the construction process. There are also necessary steps during and post construction to help prevent soil erosion. One of those is to cover bare earth during the process. This can be accomplished through spreading straw. After construction, the addition of vegetation is vital. Anchoring the soil with plant life prevents rapid soil movement and loss of organic material in the soil.
Erosion Control Products
Straw erosion control blanketing is a great way to maintain new vegetation once planted. Seeds are usually dispersed through a pump and hose system. To retain moisture and protect the new seeds from washing away or being carried off by animals, straw coverage is added.
The problem we see is folks don’t have an efficient way to accomplish this. When mulch is added to the hose and pump system, seeds don’t have soil contact and therefore germination rate is lowered. Some other folks use a small bale chucker, but these still require quite a bit of manual labor and small square bales are hard to find. Art’s Way Manufacturing provides a different solution. TOP-SPREAD bale spreader attaches to a skid loader you already have on site and you can quickly cover the ground with no manual labor needed. This also cuts down on time and material used.
