I'm thinking of getting a spreader for the PTO for broadcasting seed (grass, oats, winter wheat, maybe even corn, whatever flowers the Mrs. wants, etc) and probably fertilizer. I have a 9' pull-behind lime spreader, so I don't need one for that.
I know fertilizer is highly corrosive, and stainless steel guts are desirable as is a plastic hopper. That's pretty much all I know.
What's good, what's junk, and what's a reasonable price for these things? I've seen some listed for nearly a grand new, and that seems rather high for a little whirly tray, PTO shaft, gear box, and a sliding gate on the bottom of a bucket.
