Manure Spreader Might be a New Idea/Nisco

The unidentified manure spreader shown in the November 2016 issue of Farm Collector might be a New Idea/Nisco. I am enclosing a picture from an original owner’s manual that came with the spreader my grandfather purchased in 1923.

We used it into the 1970s. It was later traded to a man who was working a team. He completely restored it. One day when he was using it, the team spooked, ran through a fence and jumped a ditch, wrecking the spreader.
