    I have several large lawns that I apply with granular fertilizers, lime and weed control. I was wondering if any of you have any ideas or know of anybody who makes a good spreader that attacthes to a ZTR. I bought an Agrifab pull behind but I think it would work better to be mounted on ZTR. :confused:

    Spyker makes one that several of the guys here have said is good, but I've never found it on the web or in one of the catalogs. It may be at Lesco, but we don't have that critter out here on the frontier, so if anyone has suggestions I could use a good ZTR mounted spreader too. Thanks, Will M>

    I use a Jrco which I hooked up a 12 Volt sprayer so I can spread and Spray at the same time. I love it, works great for me.

    Same here. I bought a Agrifab several years ago and was very unhappy with it (unstable and no control). Picked up a Lesco 12volt mounted it to the front of a DC and it works great. I now walk only very small lawns. I had to have a frame mounting bracket welded up, but it takes only about 5 min. to attach the spreader to the DC with 2 bumper bolts and there was no drilling on the frame. Good Luck!!!

    I just bought an Earthway M21,made my own mount on the front of my Dixie,but havent used it yet.So i cant report.I bought it because it was 1/2 the price of the others,and i dont do a lot of jobs with it to justify the cost.I hope it works out good.I wanted the JRCo,but at 900 bucks,i couldnt justify the cost being PT,and home use only.

    try jthomasdistributors.com

    You can buy an agrifab electric spreader for a ztr. You supply bracket for mounting, though. Works pretty well, but have only spread (3) skids of material so far with it. Cost is $339 i think-- Jrco is nice but for three times the price? How much will you use it; that is the key.

    I have 2 Spyker electrics....both 220# models, like them much better than any other one i have found. The thing is just better built. Go to www.spyker.com it will show you the 2 different electric models. Hope this helps...:eek:

    wow I had to pull up my recipt for my Jrco spreader. I paid $569.00 and 80 for the mounting bracket. Just letting you know 900 seems awfull high.
