Has anyone ever make a fert spreader/sprayer for a walkbehind. I'v got an extra scag hydro unit that I dont use and was thinking of pulling the deck off and mounting a hopper and spray tank with a boom on it. Has anyone on here done this. If soo could you post some pics. I have a pretty good idea on what I want. I just need to find an electric broadcast spreader. I'm doing this cause I dont want to spend over $4500 on a commercial unit when I figure I could put a couple hundred into my mower and have almost the same thing.

Quail Creek don't waste your time.

It doesn't turn well or handle hills very good.

I used an Encore hydro that had a 60" deck.

It had a Lesco truckster spreader and a 25 gal spray tank.

Another reason no one has gone and done this, is because you have to have both hands on the controls and will have trouble flipping switches or moving any levers.
