As you all are starting to piece together I cannot leave anything alone. I KNOW I can always make it better. Well, this time it is my SS2036B spreader.

Let's start at the beginning. First up, it is not quick hitch compatible. Needless to say it did take me a couple of times to get this right. What I did was made custom lower pins that just slide on. This solved the problems of too small and too short. Then I added some clamp collars to control the side to side position.

Then I cut of the upper mount (the second time).

these are the short ones that cut off to make the longer ones. The short was just too short for mounting. Once mounted they worked fine but, just need more clearance.

Forgot to mention it was a tight fit, but it all worked.

Anyway you get the idea. Let's start there first. I have more to come on the custom made spreader disc that throws the contents (plastic one didn't last) and a remote control gate arrangement.

Here is the impeller fix. The original was plastic and as you can see not repairable. So rather than just buy another plastic impeller I made a new one out of aluminum. Sorry, already had the new one mounted before I realized I hadn't taken a picture. These will have to do.

Had to Google "SS2036B Spreader" - didn't know if it was a spreader for lime, manure, fertilizer, or what......now I see what you are working on!

Sorry, it is a Frontier model. Here is an overall shot.

Thanks Randy - was curious if it was a plastic or metal hopper. Curious as to what your uses are for it. I would love to have one for spreading anti-skid on my driveway but don't have any means to keep the anti-skid itself from freezing.

After making it quick hitch compatible, it now sits back another 3 to 4 inches and I was finding that I was really disliking the awkward reach for the control handle. I decided this was not going to do and after further research I discovered that Frontier offered a remote control unit with a control cable as an option. It was obvious that what they had and hadn't designed and provided for this option was a far cry from satisfactory. After some engineering and manufacturing here is what I came up with. The hand control is mounted by tightening just one bolt. It will also fit on either the 2305 or the 2520. The mounting blocks are powder coated aluminum. And after trying it out, I must say, I hit another homerun. Here are the pictures of this mod.

Wow Randy - that's beautiful work! I like how you made the block to easily remove the remote control handle.
