    Ok guys help me find out what model this spreader is and where to find parts. I got it dirt cheap but its probably going to need bearings etc.. The only thing I keep seeing on the parts web sites are the models Icebreaker and Striker and the one that mine looks the most like is the Striker. There are only the Western decals on the sides and the engine cover, and a small tag that says Western Hopper Spreader and the serial number, I am going to try to upload the pics I have. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    it looks like the striker before they redesigned it. i know they stopped selling it for a couple years and then re released it. the new design is essentially the same thing with more bells and whistles. i would try a machine shop, there is a guy around us that comes up with all the parts we need for our stuff, and for pretty cheap. your best bet is most likley to call western.
