    ok guys ,

    i have a used buyers vbox for sale. it is a sch910 i beleive (dont have it here in front of me) i will post pics later if anyone is interested

    I just purcahsed this unit over the summer, and rebuilt it. I just got a new dump truck , with a cental hydro , so will not be needing it, and my stoage space is at a premium ,

    I pulled the drag chain off of it, let it soak in oil for 2 weeks. every link bends freely

    All 4 bearings are NEW. the electonic throttle is new. starter is new. new battery cables , new solinoid ... All bolts were replaced with SS, for easy service in coming years

    This unit starts, runs, just fine. It has spread about 10 tons already this year , spread pattern is even , and flows out at a good rate (which could be adjusted) i estimate the acctual throw distance to be 30-35 feet on average

    It has Electric start, and Pull starter as a back up. Full control panel with momentary/and on 3 way switch. Throttle and choke, clutch, and starter all controlled in the cab

    new paint job , currently western red. Ill paint it what ever you want, i have the time and tools

    The Bad on the unit 1. the bottom of it has started to rust, like most v boxes due. It doesnt effect its running , or structual straigth

    the enigne Cover , needs some welding , has some rust, not terrible

    the spinner assembly , has seen better days. i would use it the rest of this season , then plan on a new one next year, the spinner it self and bearings are good its just the chute

    other than that this is really a nice spreader , i put alot of TLC in it already. the Hopper has 100% good, solid steel , it was powered coated from the factory, and the powder coat was in good shape, just fadded yelllow from the sun, thats the only reason we painted it

    I would like to get out what i paid if possible that might not happen , im willing to exept fair offers

    I paid 750 for the spreader, and put 250 in parts.. plus lots of labor so im gonna ask $1100. Let me know , Item can be picked up or i will deliver in a short mile area of 50 miles depending on buying price

    i dont have it here at home, but ill go out tomarow and get them ... as stated..the chute isnt that great , but could be used the rest of this season

    the motor runs good

    the entire drag chain was taken apart, it sat in oil for 2 weeks

    new bearings, new electornic throttle. so there isnt that much more that could go wrong

    ummm... im gonna say no but i guess it could


    i have about 1 foot of room between my glass and the spreader , maybe a little more.... so i guess it depends on the lenth of ur truck bedexactly , i could measure it for u tomarrow
