ATV Mounted Spreaders

    I did a search and not much info came up, so I need some help with this:

    1.) I don't want a tow behind spreader for my ATV.
    2.) Can anyone recommend a ATV mounted spreader?
    3.) Can anyone post some pics of an ATV mounted spreader?
    4.) What is your impression / experience with a mounted spreader (would you recommend this method to a friend)?

    Thanks for any help :help:

    i made the mistake of buying a worksaver brand. it had adjustable flow rate and adjustable spinner speed, but was simply a pile of scrap. I was looking at the cycle country version at the same time, but didn't spend the extra cash to get it and should have. I would STRONGLY recommend getting one that is as much plastic as possible.

    I have found that the spreaders themselves are not the problem. You have to watch the media you put through them.

    Cr252...

    Does the Buyers spreader have and adjustable spray pattern? What if you want to use it on sidewalks? That's what I'm trying to find out is what works best for both wide area and narrow coverage.

    Thanks

    Swisher.

    All plastic except for the metal. Really, all the contact points for chemical are plastic except for the spinner rod and bolt heads in the tank. Has an adjustment for the spinner/motor height. It will spread the exact width of my bike. The foreman of the job I was on fell in love with it. "Now I don't want calcium all over the place." "No problem." Worked great. The flow plate is the shutoff. That only that part sucks is you have to reach back and do it manually.
    I'm gonna put a guard or tarp between the spreader and the bike this year. Calcium is hard on metal.

    wouldn't it be a good idea to rinse the salt off everything after I'm done with it? You can say that with just about any small salt spreader. I actually didn't order the Spin Tech. I've been trying to contact someone there with no luck so I waited. I'm still looking for something comparable in size to do small parking lots. I've been reading about the Sno-Way brand and they seem pretty nice.

    Swede,How are the ATV's taking the weight of the spreader AND salt? That's about 500lbs on the back when it's full. I'd be afraid it wouldn't turn with all the weight on the back. I like that Snoway 4.
