    Anyone have a issue ordering a buyers salt spreader? I ordered one 5 weeks ago and still have not recieved the spreader. It was a 8ft carbon steel with extended chute. No one can give me an answer to when it will be shipped. Wanna just call and cancel order but dont know if its actually buyers thats backed up. Never had this issue before, ive bought three and recieved them within two weeks

    I ordered a 10' stainless steel 8 yard spreader from buyers (actually bought through Central Parts) back in Sept. It took 9 weeks to get it. Buyers was backed up even then! Hate to say it, but I wouldn't hold your breath. It was also very difficult to get a solid answer from them.

    Call your local Henderson dealer as the plant in Iowa has 4 available - http://www.hendersontruckequipment.com/images/sale/HTE_Inventory.pdf

    I want to stay with buyers as I have three other ones. I like the fact that all my spreaders are interchangeable between all the trucks and they are easy to fix. I have almost every part to fix the spreaders if something breaks

    Send a PM to smoorman on here. He's their factory rep for Plowsite. He might be able to help you narrow information down.

    9 weeks and still no spreader. I dont understand how they can be this far behind. Any longer, i might as well cancel and wait till next year, especially since we havent had any snow

    I think I'd throw in the towel and wait until summer now. That's nuts.
