It's usually me that spills itPay attention when loading or getting loaded too. Its been awhile since Ive been to a yard to get loaded but quite often an operator using an yard bucket would dump spilling infront instead of out back of the unit. These spills add up quickly especially at 10-15 fills a storm.
I'd get a hydraulic spreader...lololThe gas spreader is definitely a little faster, but the ability to fine tune is worth it. If I know it's an ice storm at night (and I don't have the boss already hooked up), I'll throw the gas in. Did it twice last year when I could just open her up and go.
PTO is aboot a $750-1000 kicker.At the risk of sounding completely clueless on costs and mechanics, I'm surprised they don't come standard on 1 ton and larger trucks.
Isn't it just an extra part on the trans?
Sort of like a bigger unimog, that can actoally motor on the highway, but no 3 point hitch.Run Hyd Beaver tail on GN trailer, power remote fence post driver, power portable chutes and calf table and hauling equipment that has hyd wheels like cultivators, bottom plows, etc....
