    Does anyone know of a spreader that mounts to the back of a lawn/garden tractor? Something that would run off the 12 volt battery. If you had a tractor with a spreader on the back and a snowblower on the front you would only have to make ONE pass over a sidewalk and you would be done.

    Sounds good on paper anyway.........

    Thanks Grassbusters, that looks nice. I wonder if it would rust out very fast since it doesn't look like it is made for salt. Anyone using such a spreader for salt?

    Most of the bucket looks plastic, so I think you should get at least 2-3 years out of it (make sure you wash it) and at a price of 120.00 that cost you 40.00 bucks a year. It's your call :rolleyes:

    Come to think of it a pull behind spreader may work better for you, and being a drop spreader you would not wast any material by shooting it in the lawn :nono: You would have a precision counter attack on the ice :gunsfiring:
