    We have a used Grotech (now SnowEx) swing away tailgate spreader. This unit holds around 650 lbs of material. It is low and is less obstructive to your rear view as seen in pic. Comes complete with control unit and wiring. Needs the spinner bearing replaced. Pic is a file photo of same style. This unit was around 1500.00 new. Asking $250.00 contact Ian 586 405-1321

    Metro,
    I'm definately interested, is there any way that you can send me some actual pictures of the unit? Jwu91@yahoo

    Also, what condition is the motor in, as well as the mounting hardware?

    Thanks, John

    The unit is in a warehouse where we keep old equipment. If I can run down there I will get some pics. It is the same as the one in the picture. It is in good shape no cracks ect. The motor is excellent. It is enclosed inside the unit and never gets exposed to the elements. The hardware should be ok minus the bolts, they were rusted.

    Well, seeing as you are about 6 hours away, is there any way that you can get a shipping quote to Peoria, IL 61614, I'm not sure that this is going to be that cost effective....

    I really can't go that far for something this small, but I do go up just south of Flint on a regular basis.

    If the shipping were at or around $100, I would definately go that route. $350 plus a pillowblock isn't too bad, as long as it has the variable speed...

    I will take both. If you are willing I will pay 250.00 cash and trade ya a meyers e-60 pump. The pump leaks a little from the block but I think it is a seal. It runs and operates great just don't have the time to fix. Let me know asap I have been looking at one on ebay.

    I called you myself and kept getting voice mail. No sense in playing phone tag.

    Everything that is listed is availible for sale. But due to the fact that some people do not read the postings all the way through, I am spending all my time answering pms and emails and I am not the one with the items. This goes for anyone interested. Items are all for sale. Cash only, no trades unless you have a 16' or larger trailer to offer, No PMs, No emails, contact Ian at 586 405-1321 days or 586 465-3259 evenings
