    Blizzard 1.5 yard ice chaser electric poly for sale. This spreader will squeeze into a short bed truck. It's 4 years old. It's exactlythe same as a western or fisher. I replaced control module last year and controller 2 years ago. I will take $3500 cash.

    You alright? It has been strictly a backup spreader. Less than 5 tons a year have been run through it if any at all, and washed after every use.

    Is not this spreader $6K with tax to replace? What do you guys think it should sell for? I am considering replacing my SnowEx 8500s and thought the used ones were worth the same money as he is asking in very nice condition? GLWS.

    My thoughts exactly. I think this is a good buy for a person looking to start providing ice control services.

    6600? Geez. I take that back. Your price is dead on then. But that's also a lot for a new spreader.

    They're right about the price, I was looking to add a Fisher (same damn thing as the Blizzard, just yellow) and it was almost 7k! The Blizzard was 5700.00 and that was 2 or 3 years ago. I'd say if it's as new and in as good of shape as he says it is it's worth it.

    You get what ya pay for when you buy a spreader. And not once has it ever let me down.

    Six and seven K??? Are you kidding me? CPW just quoted me a price of 3,800 for a 1.5 yard Polycaster. Exact same spreader. I don't know how you guys are paying so much for a one and a half yard spreader. If you don't believe me, here's their number. Call them for yourself and verify it. 1-815-469-1300.

    And I apologize to the OP. My intent isn't to s*** on your price or thread, my jaw just dropped when I saw the price considering that it's four model years old, and exactly the same as the Tornado and Polycaster.
