    Needed: Western p/n 28866 on/off variable speed control box

    Hello to everybody. Not much snow here in S.E. Mich, sure is cold though - 22* right now. I am looking to purchase an on/off variable speed control box P/N 28866 for a western tailgate spreader. I don't know a whole lot about them, I've read that this control will operate all western spreaders. If you have one, I can be reached at; 248-249-8615. Thank you.

    ctbman, thanks for the info. I was able to find and purchase one from Bob Church, the Karrier company. He's a great guy who spent alot of his time to answer questions. I highly recommend him.
