    Sidewalk spreaders

    We use two different SnowEx spreaders. The SP-85 which is a broadcast spreader as well as a Drop Spreader. They both work very well and have had many tons of material ran through them.

    Spyker makes some of the best I've always thought. Plus they have one large gate instead of a few holes.

    Sp-85 is my choice, favorite out of all I have tried. Third year on mine now. But third time in the last week I answered the same question. Is the search broken?

    Sorry I didn't use the search mode I don't really know how to. Do you just type ur question in the search bar? Or prolly just key words. I will use that in the future thanks for the replays. Btw does the sp85 drop and broadcast with the same spreader? Thanks

    Sp-85 is a broadcast, I have also spread around 2ton of fert out of it in a pinch.

    Yes just type in something in the search function on this page and you should hit your mark.

    These are great but not cheap. Has grease nipples on the bearings inflatable tires and multiple application settings.

    Here's the thing, the epoke I tried to find in the states was not found. I emailed epokena rep no reply. Probably shipping is so much they know it just is not going to happen. I'd like one. I have a spyker. Not set up for tough materials. broken now on bagged dry material. No chance it will do bulk treated salt.

    Buy the one that just came up for sale for $450 in Michigan and have it shipped. They are $1100 brand new and I've never seen a used one for sale that cheap before.

    Ok. thanks for the heads up. I just sent a PM to the member. Problem I see is shipping is a hassle on somthing like that. Could be half of what he's asking. Anyone looking within driving distance would be a good deal. we'll see what happens
