    I'm looking at getting a fast cast 550 gas engine spreader, it has a pull start, which I will re power it to electric start to in cab starter controls but that is besides the point. What's the quality of these units, from what I understand they are aluminum or stainless? And it seems to be a 1/3 yard capacity, I'm just looking for some more info about it and some reviews is all, and which motor I should go with for a repower, I figure anythjng honda wouldn't be a bad choice. I don't need a bigger spreader on the truck that this will be going into, so this will do. Any insight appreciated as always, thanks.
