    Anybody have any information or advice on finding parts for the older style Buyers salt spreaders?

    I do not know the model to my spreader but it has worked well for me this last year.
    It's an 800lb low profile spreader. The orange plastic container type.
    It has the motor housed inside the box in the middle towards the top.

    I'm looking to pick up backup parts for it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey, I do appreciate the info.
    I am going to make some phone calls tomorrow.
    Sometimes I enjoy using the mouse and keyboard rather then calling and asking. Sign of the times

    Thanks for the advice you guys. Both of these sites are great.
    Would any of you have any idea of what model this is or where to find out what the model names/numbers are for the older buyers spreaders?

    I believe its the old TGS05A model. if you want, put together a list of what parts you are looking for and I can help you find them.
