    Hello guys, I now have a Western Pro Flow 1000 Spreader, and I was wondering if anyone has made some kind of stand or cradle to set it on. Any pics or drawings? I have the trailer hitch mount. Any info is greatly appreciated.

    I have a Snowex 575 that I built a rolling stand for. I use a furniture dolly and some treated lumber. The stand allows me to slide the hitch mount right into the 2" receiver. Then I can wiggle the stand from under........works great and was cheap......

    Do you have any pictures of your spreader caddy that you could post??? I work solo and could use something to assist with removal of my Magnum 575 spreader. That Magnum is a little too heavy to handle by yourself. Thanks, Ed

    Sorry Ed, I don't have pictures to post just yet. I need to get some testing done before I'm ready to sell it. I have to make sure it won't tip over easily. Can you imagine the liability?
