    I finally bit and bought a new fisher speedcaster 2. We would have been able to instal it in about 4 hours had the dealer sent the correct frame flanges for the reciever hitch. We thew a couple bags of sand in it and tried it out in the lot in front of my wharehouse. It seemed to work pretty good. At high speed it seems to spread sand only about 20 - 25 feet, which is fine. My question is how many spare parts, motors, etc. should I carry in stock? What kind of luck do you guys have with them? Any weaknesses?

    I am now going on my 3rd season with mine and till now have had no problems. Just keep it clean and greased. I do have a problem with my controler though, juice going to it and hit the switch and nothing works. Out of warranty by 5 days. :yow!:

    have you checked with your dealer? Those things have a 2 year warranty I believe.

    not yet but i bought the spreader on 11/05/02. I am hoping that they can do something for me. A new controller is a little over $300

    2nd season for me with my spreder.Works great.After the first time I loaded it all the way, the drag belt streched, and after adjusting the belt, it ha been flawless since.It does take a bit to get used to vehicle speed and how much to have the gate open, but it more than makes me money.
