    Any one have the poly caster spreader? How long does it take for the hopper to empty out? I see that it has variable speed control so I assume it can empty out pretty quickly?

    I have 1.5 yard v shaped hopper now that is electric. I would say it takes a good hour before the hopper is empty. I need something that is going to be faster. Or is gas powered the only option?

    Thanks for any info!

    With the gate wide open you can empty it in just a few minutes.

    Had one of the original PolyCasters. 1.2 yards maybe?
