    I've got an 8' Swenson v box spreader I'm going to sell sometime in the next few weeks... Engine went bad last year and am putting on a 17.5 hp brigs. This motor used to be in my riding motor and a valve went out. Thats getting fixed now and then we'll see what we have to do to get it mounted and working on spreader. Everything works on spreader and no rust holes, however could use a blasting and paint. I dont really know how much to ask for it. I want to replace it with a small spreader. My old one was a snow ex 1875 and I want something similar, so I am open to trade, no junk please, turn key only

    I can swing by there sometime tomorrow and take a couple pics... id like to try and get some of my money back out of it and then buy another snow ex... im guessing somewhere around $1400 ish. It will be in good working order before sold... parts for the engine will be here tuesday or wednesday.. If you'd like to do that work yourself I'd take off a couple hundred. But like i said I don't know what exactly will need to be machined until we mount the engine... The engine that was on it was a 8 hp and I thought a little under powered. The the 17 hp is overkill but I already have it
