    We are a small landscaping business trying to grow here in northern CT. We are looking for a spreader/sander reasonably priced and a plow for a 98 Dodge 2500. Also some type of skidsteer or Bobcat. Anyone with used equipment for sale?

    My husband has family in Maine, where are you?
    Price is right $1500?-- does everything work? It can carry a third of a yard of and/salt mix? Isn't that about what a tailgate spreader can hold? How much area does this cover before you have to refill the hopper?

    I am in Hiram, ME. It is just south of Fryeburg. Everything does work, has a 500lb capacity for sand and salt mix. I've never used it other than to make sure it runs so I am not exactly sure how much surface area it can cover.

    My neighbor has a Fisher Speed Cast spreader for sale in Shelton,Ct. He sold his truck and plow and the spreader is all he has left. I would buy it, but I do very little sanding. I don,t know what he's asking, just trying to help him out.

    If it's a 2500 You're going to have problems with a 7 unless you always plow in a straight line.
