    I am looking for a way to spread both coal cinders or 3/8 aggregate on my driveway. It is a little over 1/4 mile long gravel drive. I would prefer something to tow behind my dakota. Any ideas

    Idk about towing something. But a paver can do it. Or a dump truck with coal shoot

    Calling a paver or a contractor with a dump truck really is not what I am looking for but thanks. Ideally I would like to have a tow behind broadcast spreader that could handle cinders and maybe small aggregate. I am surprised nobody makes something for a homeowner to use.

    No profit....
    Most homeowners don't salt/sand anyways nor would the other half spend more than $7-800 for something they'll use 3-5 times a year, plus there would be no profit for manufacturers
