    Thinking about buying a Western 1000 spreader with wiring and controller that is supposed to be 3 years old and in good shape. Guy also has about 3/4 pallet of salt.

    It looks like a decent deal, you have to watch the lower bearing on the spinner, if they didnt grease it often enough it will be junk. Nice thing is, its fairly simple to replace and the cost is only around $44.57 or to be exact,lol. I bought the Fisher model (same thing) at a garage sale for..........a whoppin' $300.00 and put a new lower bearing and new paint totaling 90 bucks.

    U just bought one identical to it (hope it wasn't that one) and paid $600, Mine works perfect and came complete with wiring and controller. No salt tho. You can download the owners manual from the Western site.
