    Do any of you guys use a fert spreader in the back of you're UTV? If so, what kind? How's it working out?

    I use a herd spreader on my atv. Sometimes on the front rack and sometimes on the back. I think the model is a gt77. It seems to be a quality piece of equipment. I've had it about 4 years and I use it for fert and seed on fb, bb, and sb fields as well as food plots. Only downside is the 80lb capacity.

    If you are handy...and exceptionally creative...you can build a trailer hitch for your push spreader and tow it behind. Use 10 feet of aluminum tubing or conduit bent double. Tricky to set up an on/off mechanism.

    Or, you can devise a hitch and tow the spreader backwards--allowing you to reach the on/off handle easily...of course you have to remove the axle and reverse it so that the driving wheel is on the left, and the spinner rotates in the opposite direction.

    Bought a Lesco electric ON SALE. mounted it to the front hitch on my Kobota RTV. Works great!

    I hoped they changed the motor on that spreader. I went through two motors on that thing before I switched to a Spyker.
