    Checking for interest here,

    i got a older Western V-box. 1.5 - 2yd capacity. 8'

    perfect for a pickup or 1 ton dump

    it needs a little work,

    probably a delivery chain, possibly bearings

    it has been sitting for 2 years and doesnt look like i need it this year either.
    we had it running and all last year, we were gonna use it but bought new one instead, kept it as a backup but dont need it now.
    the controls are only like 4 or 6 ft long, but can be easily extended.

    i can get pics and such but not sure what the interest is. not looking to get a ton outta it. make a offer

    also got a tailgate replaceable central hydros spreader, but gonna start a seperate thread on that.


    located in N. IL NW suburbs of chicago.

    thanks
    Nate

    Honestly,
    Make an offer.

    i know it needs some work.
    im thinking 700, tell me if im off base im not sure what its worth.

    its not new, but some elbow grease and prolly 500 in parts and some paint and she should be golden.

    thanks

    Let me kick it around. I have those 2 stainless ones and I may wind up just keepin one. But yours has potential. A good blasting and paint would do wonders. Adding some 8" sides would get another yard out of it too.

    I think we're gonna transfer a tailgate spreader from 1 dump to the other. If so I'd like to put a v box in the other.

  9. Does the motor run? Just needs maybe a chain and bearings? Would you take $300 for it if still for sale?

    it ran last year, i havent tried this year but i would think so,
    new chain, possibly bearings, we may have done some bearings last year and then never used it. but i would have to check for sure, 300 a little light, but we can work something out, pm me

    thanks
