Look at coxsreels. I got one om my T for the auxiliary tank and its a spring loaded to. I think it's 8 or 10 ich diameter

Nice machine there Grassman.

i hope i wont, that is a bad sign if i do!!

they are pretty strong springs, i think they will last a while.

we just got the speedo kit for puting on my max, lets just say it is a bit involved to install. should get it on over the weekend though.

still have not been able to actually use the cable operated side deflector though, you have it on yours right trent? does it do a great job at its purpose or what? a good clean line of fert out the front.

i was a fan of the old ones, they worked so much better than others on dif spreaders i have used. the new one is very close to the spinner compared to the old one too, would think it has to work great huh

So, how does it do applying Imprelis? lol

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Getting tempted to buy an Intermediate for a backup. Or a new Max.

Looks good.

Grassman, installing the speedo is very easy. U will need an extra person to help u take the wheel motor off though.

CHARLES CUE, thanks. I'm gunna check out coxreels.

grassman ........ Your're sposed to do production BEFORE Happy Hour. This way you won't be bunging up your equipment.

I realize it helps during hot weather, but I had no idea so many are wearing speedos.
