    I found a V box spreader this week the motor runs it's used and orange. The chain is in good shape it has all the control for the cab with it. It's fix in the long box pickup the guy wants $800.00 dollars for it. Is this a good buy or not?

    This time of year, any running and operating spreader thats not all rotted out is probably worth that. Orange, huh? Henderson Chief maybe?

    If its what you need, offer $600 and let him pull you up a bit.

    Henderson, Monroe, Swenson, who else makes an orange spreader? We have all three of those in our fleet.

    The only Swensons and Monroes I've seen around here are yellow, but that could be a repaint even... forgot about Curtis...

    Just look the machine over really well. Remember, if the steelwork is still in decent shape, everything else is replaceable.... but even if everything else is good and the steel is rotten, you're still just living on borrowed time. Unless of course you're a welder with lots of time on your hands! :laughing:
