    I'm not familiar with this spreader but wanted to toss out the idea that with the rip in the belt it looked like was fairly straight, you could always cut the belt completely acroos at the rip and put in a second set of belt lacing. Is it the perfect solution no but it should run for some time with a repair like that. Just my 2 cents.

    You should be able to get parts for that without a problem, its still a fairly new spreader (in production still). I'd rehab the entire unit for that price!
