Default IHC #4 Manure spreader

We just picked up a IHC / Mc Cormick Deereing all steel manure spreader. It is 90% there and nearly ready to use. All the wheels and drive chains, auger (?) and mixer (?) work well. Has about 1/2 the amount of trolly and chain it needs. Tyring to find chain for it. Haven't gotten a number off the chain yet but hope to tomorrow. Let me know what you think.

Nice spreader! I've got the same one, but have the beater bars on the upper beater, not the auger flights. They're a great spreader and chain should be easy to get at any farm implement store.

That is just like mine only nicer. Mine needs the chain guards on both sides. The apron chain is made with "S" link chain. I bought a complete one in 2007 from midway repair in Ohio. I think it was under $300. at that time. I pull mine with a pair of haflingers. What do you have for horses?

We don't have horses ao we are going to pull it with our son's 1947 Allis Chalmer WC. I just received a owners / assembly manual today that I bought off Ebay. It showes in there a "Stub Hitch" that is supposed to be used with a tractor. Shorter and has a pin drop with shock spring in it. I have been looking foe chain but unable to find it. I will try the place you got yours from. I would like to see pictures of yours if possible. Thanks for posting. I have more of ours to post if anyone is interested.

Youbetcha we're interested, Bearhunter! Pictures are always good! Here's a couple of ours.





As you can see, the triangle bracket for the top beater is broken. I'm working on a little better setup for that until I can find the "auger flight" top beater like you have...it's a bit more dependable for the occasional rock that seems to break ours. A previous owner did a pretty nice job of "rubberizing" the wheels... makes the ride down the county road to the field a bit more friendly.

John I see that you have the complete apron on yours. I can't find "S"link chain so far. I only have about a quarter of what I need for it. Yours looks like a #1 or #2. The beaters appear to be differant.

I've always been told it's a 4 or a 4A. I dunno. The parts catalog shows both styles of top beater, but lists the "toothed upper bar" as "special".

Here's a couple shots of my IHC #1 spreader. As you can see, it is all wood. Think they were only made from 1919 to 1924 or so.

Nice one Kent. That was what we originally wanted for the yard. They are hard to come by now around here. That one looks in good shape. I recently got an original wrench from IHC that came with the Manure spreader. I has a little wear but it works great. I am noe looking for the S chain. I haven't had a chance to call Midway repair yet. It will have to wait until after Christmas.

I am working on restoreing a IH spreader which looks like the one in the first post except it is wood floor and has no tool holders by the seat would that be a 4A also or something different. Does anybody know if the bushings which the beater rides in on the sides are available anywhere? One of mine is broke other wise it is all complete except for floor and the shields.

With wood parts I think it would be a different model. For bushings I would call BW Macknair. If he doesn't have them no one will. (717)543-5136. I would like to find a set of shields for mine also. They are there but pretty thin to try and patch. Farnmchains.com also has "S" link chain in 10 foot rolls. I believe they also have the links to attatch the slats. Not sure on price.

I have one just exactly like the one in the first post.looking at them you wouldn,t be able to tell the differance.It has a rectangular box painted in the middle of each side,but I can't make out what was printed in the box.The only way I could tell it is a International is a little round inspection plate on the right rear guard that has "IH" stamped into it.The tongue has rotted away,but all the hardware is there.Can anyone tell me what was printed in the box's and the approx.year it was built.

If you can find an old IH #200 the drag chain is the same as the 4A.IH carried over some of the parts from the 4A to the 200.The 4A was built from 1932 to 1940,and the 200 was built from 1940 to 1954.Hope this helps.

Just looked through my Valu Bilt/CT Farm catalogue.New apron for a #200 is $800 if you desire a new apron,that big S chain is sure expensive.
