Looking for a Spreader for the Del Lil Tipster

    Ahoy

    Long time lurker . I cant find a spreader for the Little Tipster dump insert by Del. arrr. I don't think Del makes one. Perhaps there is an under tailgate spreader that will be compatible with it.

    Love the tipster for everything I do but business is growing and I need the right tools for the job. ie. plow , truck, cannon, and salter.



    any ideas?

    First call should be Del, second would be your dealer. BTW-what do you need a cannon for?

    The spreader itself wasn't modified, but had to make different mounts. Wasn't to bad. It did cost as much as you were quoted for the Del unit. At the time I didn't know Del offered one for there units. I probably would have gone that route.

    14th and Woodbine has the Salt Depot.

    There are a few places around Eglinton and the DVP. Off Bermondsey.

    There is United Salt at Kennedy and Passmore.
