    I have done a search and can't find an answer to my question. I am looking for an electric atv spreader that will spread the width of a sidewalk. I have done extensive internet research and all of the spreaders that I can find spread 10' or more. I want to spread 4'. I don't want to waste so much material and kill the grass. I was thinking of making my own deflector. Any suggestions or ideas? I would like to know if there is an electric atv spreader that comes with a deflector. If not, any tips on making my own deflector would be appreciated.
    Thanks, Micah

    Check out Moose Utility Division, electric spreader part #M92-21090 or maybe Montana Jacks Atv Supply might have something close to what your looking for,they have some cool stuff.Hope this helps.

    i bought a curtis fastcast 175 that will spread up to 30' and i
    wired into the circuit, a speed controller from a buyer or meyer mini spreader. it works great for sidewalks. the spreader is kinda salty at about $800 and the controller is about $160. i only used it for one season and would consider selling it if your interested. heres a pic of it.
