    I have a henderson spreader that is mounted on a trailer. It works good for my route. I tare it down every spring, by removing all chains & placing in my parts washer for the summer. Also remove shaft with bearings, & spray them with WD40 every so often during the summer. My conveyor chain is wearing out in cetain spots. I have about a 3ft. section I'm worried about. Wondering if anyone had a section laying in there shop not being used that they would want to part with? 8ft./123 links, 11-1/4" ctr. to ctr. chain"662, cross bar 3/4" x 1/4". Thanks

    My opinion on conv chain is when one section starts to fail the rest is soon to follow... I for one would rather replace the entire chain when its nice out and theres no pressure to get it fixed, then replace one section and the next season another section fails in the most crucial time with a full hopper to now unload. Your out cussing and freezing your azz off...... I'm sure you get my point.

    I agree. Already been looking into a new chain. Semi retired & plan on plowing one more season. Seems like i've been nursing this sander forever. Anyhow thanks for reply.
