    I have the opportunity to buy this spreader. I know its late in the season but I have been searching around for one next year. I will be doing mostly smaller lots and driveways. It is a used spreader. A good friend of mine said he has seen the spreader and says its practicaly brand new. Seller states it was used only 2 hrs and has only minor rust by the spinner due to no one cleaning it out after its 1 time use. Im going to go look at it next week. The seller stated he needed to get rid of it due to lack of room for storage. I offered 450.00 cash and he accepted.

    What do you guys think? What should I look for when I go take a look at it? This will be my first spreader.

    Anyone else care to add anything? I talked to the guy today and the lowest he said he could go was 450.00 cash.

    You said TILT not swing rite?! I would like a pic of that I wanted to do that to mine.

    I would go for it. If it truly is like brand new thats a great deal. I got an OLD one with the cable operated slide gate that needed a lot of work and had no wiring. But it's still a great piece of equipment.

    Yes, the price (450.00) includes everything. I figure even if I dont get any salting accounts next year I could probably sell it and make some money off of it.

    $450 is a great deal for that. I bought 1 for $475 a couple years ago and it was four years old then. It still works great. I've been looking for another for my other truck all year but I haven't been able to find anything close to that price. Buy it, or send me the contact info so I can :)
