    i see spreader parts as consumables. They rust out fast! you have to buy new because most used parts are one salting away from breaking

    Was hopping to find at least the trans used, maybe someone backed into something and its good for some parts.

    The transmission shaft normally bends if the impact is hard enough to destroy the hopper. The value of a use transmission/motor for a 1575 would be very low they don't get changed if they're working.
