    Hello, all i'm at the ? again after my plow purchase.
    i was offered a older meyer salt spreader in fair-poor shape for 125.00 looks like needs at least a new elec motor,some wiring, and some mount welding
    any ideas on cost for a replacement motor? or is this not worth the time? and $$
    Thanks

    The cheapest you will find the motor for is around $200. You may be able to get a rebuilt one locally cheaper. The auger, bearings , spinner, shaft and almost all other moving parts can be replaced completely for about $170.

    Central parts is the cheapest I think on most of the parts, but Jthomas is very close with the 8% SIMA discount.

    If the box is ok, the wiring you can replace yourself, its very simple. The box is about $160 if its bad.

    The new salter like that goes for about $699 plus shipping, so its probably worth re doing it.

    After looking it up, I see the parts are only about $70, and the motor $189. So it is pretty cheap to totally rebuild the thing.
