    Somebody out there makes a spreader carrier that plugs into a 2" receiver.
    Who's making the best one today?

    Thanks in advance.

    Lesco's works real well for me. You need to try it out if you don't have a Lesco spreader to make sure your spreader will fit in it. About $50-55.

    Does anyone know if the Lesco spreader caddy will work with an anderson's ap 2000 spreader?

    Thanks for the replies.

    Hey Ant,

    Still around, but after 16 years, no longer with Lesco.

    The carrier isn't for me. If it was I'd whip out the MIG welder & be done with it. But for those customers who are finished shopping at McFertilizer's I thought I'd try to find an alternative.

    Lotsa traffic here nowadays eh?

    westheffer has one that i like better than lesco's. it sits the spreader perpendicular to the truck.
    with lesco's if your spreader 'bottoms out' say on a speed bump the axcel will bend those flimsy tabs very easily
