    Curious if anyone here could be of some help. Ours is about 5yo but only does about 20 acres,yr. Been working fine. Loaded it this fall and it wanted to spread fert mostly on one side and back, not out where it should. I have looked this thing over 50x by now and the only thing I can remotely find wrong is the impeller shaft has some play causing the impeller to wobble just a touch. Not a real great design but I don't really want to throw a $300 motor on it as a guess.

    Anyone ever have issues with these? When looking at the feed hole locations in the hopper, it sure looks like they should NOT be in the back as the impeller will fling fert immediately thus more back than forward. however, it worked before so.....

    there is nothing wrong with the agitator or feed plates, etc. There is one hole on the left that is adjustable but we have tried it several ways. No difference.

    Try reversing the wires.
