    we need a bunch of parts for our spreaders (westerns and swesons). I was wondering where everyone gets their parts at online or through a catalog. The local dealers here in NJ are OUT OF CONTROL with parts. Just wondering where i could save some money? thanks....

    Just one thing to keep in mind. Will a catalog with low prices be there for emergencies at 5 in the morning or have knowledge?? Lowest price doesn't always mean best deal..value added sercice does

    i understand that but we need a bunch of bearings, 2 chutes, and a bunch of other stuff to rebuild a few things broken from last winter, not stuff in an emergency... we probably need two thousand dollars worth of parts to get some stuff back into shape.....

    Central parts is not local, but all of the dealers in my area have banker hours. I do all my own repairs, and Central Parts has long hours in the winter. They even stay open during storms in the Chicago area. I have ordered parts and gotten them within 24hrs...

    They usually offer quantity discounts too.
