Buying a used drop type topdresser

Hi Guys,

When considering purchase of a drop type topdresser like the Turfco or Earth and Turf units, what problems should I be inquiring about if considering older units that have some hours on them? Or are these units pretty fullproof?

Thanks.

I bought a used TORO pull behind 2 years ago. It wasn't in great shape but it works awesome.

They are pretty low maintenance. You just need to make sure the web is in good shape and is adjusted correctly. I am not on this part of the site usually but PM me if you have any questions.
