    Hey everyone......Looking for opinions and options for a spreader that i can put on a Kubota RTV. I have seen a couple of v box inserts (1/2 yard) for the bed however i got one price of $3000! I am open to either tailgate hoppers or V box inserts. And would like to spend less then $3000. Thanks in advance!

    Scott, We opt for the SnowEX 325's or 575's as one option and the Snoway SW4 or SW6 spreaders on most of the RTV's. Cost is under $1000 on them. You do have to put a 2" reciever on the back of the RTV thought. I have modified them to mount in the bed too but the hitch mounts are easy on and off for one guy and easier to load.

    Come on, you can't tease like that, we (I) need more info on this spreader.

    What kind of materials do you recommend?

    How is it operated? Off the hydraulics? Independent spinner control?

    I've put in the Cutis 550's they are a decent unit but I don't like the aluminum and the salt combination. The Meyer units are built well and the down easter stainless units are about the top of the line in a mini insert spreaders but you said that you didn't want to spend $2500+ on a unit and the Curtis is$2600-$3000, the Meyer is in the same ball park and the Down easter is $3+

    I like that Rtv spreader in the picture above. A friend of mine has a snow-ex gravity feed in the back of his gator and works really nice. The Snow-ex, receiver hitch spreader work really good. That's what we have on the back of our Kubota's.
