    Nice for its age 7 foot v box spreader with 8.5 HP briggs engine I just rebuilt the chute new stainless hinges inside and out, new stainless pins,and painted with POR 15 new battery, oil change, and air filter.
    It has been stored in the heated garage for the last two years not in service. There are no rot holes just surface rust and flaky paint. The cab control works as it should throttle up and down, electric start, blast and on, all work with control.

    $2000.00

    Thanks, what I really wanted to see is the side view of the adjuster. ( shown in the lower left corner of that pic) When was the last time it was started and run.?

    Post the pic of the adjuster when you get a chance. Typical Western paint job, I think they figured that if they didn't paint them right they wouldn't last so long.? I have had a few of their 8' boxes. 7 footer would fit nice in my Silverado. You have a bobcat so loading wouldn't be a problem? Very interested.
