I'm looking for a simply rack that mounts to a hitch reciever that carriers a standard push broadcast spreader.

Anybody know where to get one?

Where are you located? I have one that was custom made for exactly what you are wanting. It has also been sprayed with commercial bedliner coating. Very well built. You won't find better.
Won't ship it. It's too heavy and bulky to make sense. I am near KC.

I'm in North Western Iowa. How much do you want for it?

I'd take $150 for it. It is all steel construction with the bedliner textured black finish. It has a small drop down gate and expanded metal bottom and sides. There's a dip in the bottom to fit the wheels of the spreader. This is built to last. I'll see about getting a pic for ya. Send me a pm with your phine number and we can chat. I will be going to Des moines next Friday, April 2nd.
The price is firm. I have about twice that in it to be honest. It is completely custom built.

If u are interested in the carrier you need to let me know. Otherwise, I plan to drive a smaller vehicle to Des Moines on Friday.
I don't care either way. I'm just trying to help you out if it's something you want.

Check out B & B Tech in Tekehma, Ne just across the river. They make several types of carriers for small to ride on spreaders. 800-847-9865

That's a real nice one! Mine is smaller and designed for a push spreader.

I'm curious about this too. Does that hitch extendor from Rittenhouse actually work ok (jdmcat response)? Looks like a fert spill waiting to happen. Has anybody used one before :confused:

We prefer dual receivers for several reasons:

1) We can safely carry two "push spreaders" at a time. (comes in handy when training or running 2 guys in a truck).

2) Our "ride-on" carrier racks hold more weight, transport the ride-ons much more safely, and the receivers never wear out (compared to single receiver carrier racks), and there's no wobbling whatsoever.....ROCK SOLID

3) Our "ride-on racks" are lighter weight than traditional PG racks cuz the platform & the ramps are aluminum (one person can lift them, and there's less rust).

Four of our trucks have the added "dual receivers" (plus the factory one in the center), so we can utilize our "ride-on racks", or "two push spreaders" side by side, or "one push spreader" in the center.

We would never consider a "single receiver ride-on carrier rack". :usflag:

BTW we bought a bunch of "push spreader caddy's" from LESCO and had them modified to fit our Spyker 288's.

Nope, never have. Good point though. This would apply to anybody carrying a push spreader on a hitch receiver caddy or anybody using a carrier rack with a ride-on. I spose the proper thing to do is place the license plate on the carrier rack. Thanks.

Spyker has a caddy for a tailgate. We bought a hitch one from spyker but have not used yet. Dont see it on the website though.

There are no towns in our area that start with the letter T, and my guys better not be going to Tama where the Indian casino is. :laugh:
A local LCO (Apl) now has four T3000',s (they used to run Z's).
Zimco here in Iowa sells them T's.
("A - Z") :usflag:

Young Bros -- Does Spyker now offer hitch receiver caddy's? Cuz all I see on their site are the "hook on the side style" ??

Last year when we got our spyker we got a hitch mount for the spyker. Have not used yet. I dont see it anymore. Maybe the other design replaced it?

Here's a link to B & B Technologies web site. They have two interesting looking hitch mount spreader carriers, one for the front & one for the back. I don't have one but I'm interested to see if anyone else does.

Young, have you used the tailgate caddy? If so will it damage the paint on the tailgate and will it work with a hard tonneau in place.

Ray's sent us a hitch mounted one last year, not the new tailgate version. It goes in a very small htich. I dont know if they still sell. Have not used either one. I bought the hitch one thinking I could put on carrier but it would stick out too far. My bro plans on getting a personal pick up someday. Maybe he will use it. I was wondering the same things about the new one (damage).

I dont like the way my competition looks when they have a spreader or ride on that is on the front of their vehicle.
