    Thinking about buying a Tyrnex 1075 spreader. Anyone have any problems and how reliable are they without the vibrator. Running a Meyers Mini now would like to get some input before spending that kind of money?

    I have a fisher 2 stage that works well it ran about $2,200 a few years ago uninstalled.The unit that you are looking at has and augar rather a chain or belt.I have found with mine is that you can't load it up all they way and plow all day then sand right after becuase of compation on these units.V boxes are different my works the best when it's loadeed up and spread right away as that one must be.

    We've got one. It works ok with material that is not "packy". Never run bagged material through this one, and I think that bagged tends to be a bit more uniform than bulk. We had problems with material packing with some lot sof bulk, worked fine with others. Finally put the vibrator kit on and that took care of the problem.

    Workable. But-----

    We've got 4 of them and like them. Never had much problems. Controllers usually the first to go. You can buy re-bilt controllers from the manufacturer for around $100.00. We have several back up controllers on the shelf. If you are going to be doing alot of spreading I would really consider getting a mini vibrator. They're cheap and easy to install. We will be ordering vibrators soon. We look forward to trying them out. IF I had to to it all over again AND IF I had the money, I'd probably go with one of the units that has the small conveyeor system. I think Western has one or maybe a Speedcaster? I'm not sure. The main reason is the compaction problem.. Good Luck
