    bought a swenson mdv 10' spreader (non-hydraulic) and am going to pick it up. i have read that these might be the same product as meyer spreaders? my question is can anyone tell me if the spinner is easily removable? I want to go pick up on a gooseneck trailer and the seller is telling me i need to place it on top of pallets on the trailer because the spinner is not removable. if this is the case, how long is the spinner? (how many pallets do i need?) Thanks!

    The Meyer spreaders are built by Swenson (both companies are owned by the same people).

    The MDV spinner assembly is removable......it is bolted to the longitudinals of the hopper (we actually have one in stock)

    Here is a link to the owners manual


    Hope this helps,
