    airflo is the only way to go in NY but is kinda pricey. However it will outlast everybody else and if you get it into the hopper it will spread it

    The airflo mss is an awesome little spreader. We have one on our toolcat and have never had one issue with it.

    Does anyone have any real pictures of the airflow spreader? It has come up in several threads this season. I tried looking it up and the only pic is the one posted above. Not much info on it either. I hear it is expensive but never how much ? I'm not looking to buy another spreader right now but would still like to see or hear more about it.

    Thanks for posting that pic. Seeing it on the toolcat gives a good idea of its size. Not to go off topic but nice set up. I think a tookcat would be a cool piece of equipment to own!
