    I actually talked to them yesterday, and they said you can mount the carrier with a floor jack with one guy after you get used to the hitching/unhitching. Sounds like a good deal and no one has anything negative to say about the product, much like the Z-spray...

    I've got their spreader carriers for both the push spreader and the perma green ride-on. I've got 2001' 2500hd chevys and b & b makes a receiver for you that just bolts onto the frame of the truck in the front, for the push spreader. The carrier itself just slides into that receiver and is easy to take off if we don't need it. The receiver stays on the truck. The rear carrier for the perma green just slides into the existing receiver hitch. Once you get use to the push spreader being on the front of the truck, you'll wonder how you operated without it, they're awesome and well worth having. What's is really nice is that the push spreader can still have fertilizer left in it when it's being hauled to the next job site and it can't spill, and you never have to physically lift it to load it. Their number is 800-847-9865, ask for Bill (owner)

    I've had a couple of the carriers for about 4 years now, but I think then they where around 700.00, but I know metal has gone up with everything else.

    I think they're 850 shipped until the end of the year and from what I was told, PG is selling the B&B carriers next year.
