    I checked, the only thing I found was Gordyo's Used one for sale. Any body actually using this spreader? We are considering offering this product to our customers. 1.7 Cu. Yd. Stainless will list around $6000.00 with Honda motor.

    Not at that price. That type of spreader should be 4500 tops. Saw an airlow yesterday just like that for 3200.00 new

    I had one and got rid of it. I had far too many problems with it. Mine had an 8hp Briggs. The motor ran fine, but keeping the electrical connections working was a chore. I had to replace the connector plug annually and if I was lucky it lasted the season. They build the unit with bushings on the transfer power shafts instead of serviceable bearings, this was a constant problem too. The spinner bearing is nearly inaccessible to grease and is exposed to the material with no shielding. I don't miss it at all.

    Thanks for the info, I'll probably shy away. I checked out the Airflow. That looks like a better contender.

    Any feedback on the Buyers Stainless 1.8 Cu Yd?
