    Has anyone came up with other ways of loading spreaders than a skidsteer/loader or by hand? Thought I read of someone using an auger.

    A small conveyor will work better but either way it will be hard on your back.tymusic

    When you are aot plowing, you want something thats going to load fast, Fast = a Loader of somekind.

    And auger would be so slow!!!!!!!

    if your going to use a auger try a overhead bin of some sort that can be dumped in your spreader faster than than the auger can load

    Was thinking of an overhead bin of some sort. Loader is the quickest but it may be out on another site.
