    Got a pretty used bradford spreader. I think it is 1.5 cu yards?

    Anyways we are rebuilding it. Putting a new motor on, new bearings, and painting it.

    Well we ran into one big problem, the chain is frooze! We PB Blasted it with 5 cans, it is barely moving. Is there anywhere you can buy a chain for it at? How in the world do you take it off?

    I guess the company must be out of business, searched the web and found nothing. Anyone know where I can buy a chain for it at? It is the chain that would move to make the salt distribute from the unit.

    Any help would be appreciated. I looked at buyers chains, but no idea if they can be universal or not.

    Try j-thomas.com I know they carry a lot of parts for spreaders, also try central parts warehouse (a sponsor).

    Get me a pic of the links and a center-to-center measurement on the sprockets and I can see what matches up or have one built.
