    You'll change the direction of the motor by switching the wires. If it's not obvious which side you put which wire... hook them up. If it rotates counter clockwise looking down on the spinner, you've got it hooked up right. If it goes clockwise, you'll send material into the back of your truck. Switch the wires.

    Does your Buyers spreader have the motor in the hopper or hang under the hopper. It makes a difference to the rotation direction. ;)
