Compost/Manure Spreaders from Parma Company

In 2000, Parma Company expanded its line of durable farm equipment with the acquisition of the Dirks (formally Tycrop) “Supera” manure spreader. This acquisition returned to the Parma® line a farm box product missing since the mid 70’s that had existed since the 1940’s. This multi-use combination box is a heavy duty manure spreader that can be simply converted to a forage box for year around usage.

Since 2000 Parma Company has been building one of the toughest forage and commodity hauling units available. These are available with a Beater or Spinner attachment.

Parma Spreader boxes and trailers are designed with all welded, heavy-duty construction using 14ga and 12ga corrugated walls and solid welded 10ga floor plate. The flat bottom floors eliminate bridging of the material no matter the consistency. The floor chain is made with heavy-duty WR-78.

Some of the standard features of the Parma Spreaders are an industry-largest 2 3/8” drive shafts, with split poly bearings for economical and durable life. A simple front idler shaft mechanism uses durable poly sprockets on 1 15/16” shafts. Steel sprockets are available upon request. High torque hydraulic motors power the floor for fast and easy unloading. A wide 90 inch box body provides for a high capacity trailer made to last.

Most of these boxes and trailers can be equipped with a silage kit. These kits vary in length and side height depending on the customer choices. Each of these silage kits are available with a simple top hinged swing gate or convenient double “barn style” doors that latch securely in the floor chain.

The longest lasting, best performing, most serviceable horizontal beater manure spreader your money can buy.

Stepped Beaters spread finer, wider and more uniformly than traditional stacked beaters.

Conventional beater configuration, for hydraulic-push machines, places the upper beater directly above the main beater. In some conditions, manure from the upper part of the load can break away and tumble into the lower beater before it reaches the upper beater causing a light/heavy/light spread pattern.

RipGrip Beater Paddles are designed for better spreading.

The aggressive shape rips the manure and holds onto it for a fraction of a second. The result is a spread pattern that puts the manure behind the spreader rather than into the air.

V Series Vertical Beater Models

The new industry leader that delivers performance and control to maximize the nutrient value of your manure.




For Vertical Beaters we went to BERMA, a world leader in vertical beater design.

To ensure optimum performance, our engineering team worked with BERMA engineers to “beef up” their basic beater designs to better suit harsh North American conditions.

Paddle configurations are a combination of blades to slice through tough materials and cups to fling finer materials and semi-solids. Even corn and bean stalks are shredded to an indistinguishable fineness. Beaters can be customized with any combination of cups and knives. For even more durability in high-usage applications or abrasive materials we offer forged and hardened components. We’ve even created custom components for specific applications. What can we do for you?

Better processing and distribution means better feed for your fields.

Closely-spaced spirals and over-lapping beater tips mean more contact with the manure for finer processing and better distribution. Unlike apron-type spreaders, which have a dead spot for apron clearance, spirals on a Hagedorn spreader go all the way to the bottom of the beater. An impeller, at the bottom of each beater, further ensures good distribution of fine materials and semi-solids.
