Humm, I never knew such a thing existed but checked it out and here is something like you are talking about.

It looks like it would be a lot more than a grand though.

yes. there are a number of branches. the one that i worked with is in gainsville ga. start to finish they were perfect. i had a little problem with mine months after the sale and they followed thru with great service. michael gaines is the go to guy. these guys know their business. they will work with anyone in the country.
also graylon nichols in anderson, sc with executive auto worked in tantum to find me the perfect truck to match the spreader box and matched my price point. i would recommend graylon to anyone also. a guy with impecable character.

onebreezer - you have a sweet set up for spreading compost/topsoil/sand how does it work with mulching? We use a small lawn tractor with a slip scoop that we could pull up under the conveyor and drop it in and drive at 10mph to the next drop point a plop and back to the truck. Now we are having the piles delivered and dumped in the street. This saves us BIG TIME - we can move and spread 1 yards in 1.5 hours with two guys - one driving one raking. i can get him material faster than he can rake it out.

Have you ever put that video on TV?

so a slip scoop i think i know what that is it works ok for mulch shreaded wood clogs more than soil so you have to climb inside and help it out from time to time and i would want a larger box for mulch cause it has less weight and you need more volume i have toyed with the idea of a blower on a trailer behind the outflow so that as it comes off of the conveyer a blower picks it up and forces it thru the pipe
