    Was it free??? A coat a fresh paint, straighten out the spinner, and worse case a motor, chain and a lube job! Seems to me you'd be way ahead of the game.

    Good find, the worst case is the motor, but it looks like you could probably use one off of a washer or dryer....? good luck.

    Hey luciani634.
    I had the same exact spreader up until a year ago ands it spread sand/salt or salt like crap.always having to get out of truck and either shovel half out or using the breaker bar.But to prewarn you., youre gonna have to replace the motor,chain,conveyer belt and a few other parts.for a tune of around $ 1000.And you might want to build a cover for the motor.We went through two of them in less than a year.I might also have the wiring diagram and brochure and parts list lying around..
