Got this spreader today for $250. Works well. More pics to follow once I get it "restored" with a new paint job. I passed on the harrow, too much for my 2305 to handle To top it off the old fella that owned it wants to order some chainsaw parts ( I deal in aftermarket parts). Pretty good deal all the way around...

Nice score.

Do you have a source for pro Mac 610 parts??
Thanks guys!

Will, sorry, no all my aftermarket is for newer saws.

However, pop on over to the link below,it is the largest arborist/forestry site on the net. There are quite a few guys that probably can help you. In fact look up Pioneerguy600, he's in my neck of the woods, mention me (same handle as here), and he just might be able to help you out, or knows who can.

dellwas, I have the same kind of spreader for my 855 although mine is red, it's a dandy when it comes to fertilizing, made strong. :thumbup1gif:
I am "green" with envy. Well done. Why don't I ever stumble on deals like this?
Good Eye George

That is very nice, just a little touch-up and she'll be good to go. Your timing couldn't be better, I was using mine today to spread lawn fertilizer. Here are some pics of mine after clean up.

Nice machine and spreader Randy, I like your poly hopper better than the steel one on mine, mine has held up over the years but for somethings poly is the only way to go.

I've got to get one of those. You found a good deal. Congrats.
Not only is the hopper plastic, but the mechanism is stainless steel. :good2: The stuff you put in these things are so corrosive I wanted the rust resistant spreader. :good2:

The stainless steel mechanism puts it in a class all by itself, very good idea.   I always wash the heck out of mine before I put it away but stainless is the bomb when it comes to durability and longevity.<img class="inlineimg" title="Good2" border="0" alt="" src="http://www.greentractortalk.com/forums/images/smilies/1/good2.gif" smilieid="90">  I like the Land pride company too,  they have a reputation for designing their stuff to last and make an easy job of any kind of ground work. 

Kenny just to show you.... the above is an example of what I wind up with when I use Iespell checker.

I don't think anyone sold equipment built like that when I bought mine for for any price but I could be wrong..

thanks, but i don't think this will ever see fertilizer again. I only have 1.3 acres, mostly wood. I run a small tree removal/snow plowing business and bought this to spread sand.

Just lucked out... old guy that has it buys/sells farm equipment. He also has an old Massey that he's stripping down and rebuilding. Neat old guy, and very likeable, and I plan on keeping in touch.

Yup, figured I'd have to spend over a thousand to get one like you have. Won't use it for fertilizer though, nothing to fertilize! It's going to be used for sanding this winter. Got to make some brackets for it and extend the shaft for use with the QH. Probably tackle that this Friday- Canada Day, and I'm off...
