    As you may or may not know, I work for a national distribution company (not that one). Right now we are trying to move some long inventory so there is less to count soon. I have 5 of the Bigfoot stainless HVO speaders new in boxes taking up space that I want to move out quick. They have the lebanon pennmulch markings. You can see the specs here.

    They are designed for use as a normal spreader, but have a hinged plate designed to flip open to for large flow to spread products like pennmulch.

    These spreaders are new in the box, include a cover, and retail for $449. I want them out of here so $299 includes shipping to anywhere in the continental 48.

    PM me with contact info, or interest so I can send you mine... we can work out the details from there.

    What is the hopper opening? Single or 3 holed? We are looking for a different spreader to retail for Magic Salt in the winters and one of our contractors said the Penn Mulch spreader was great for the Magic? Any thoughts?

    I will unbox one when I get back to the warehouse and try to get pictures of the opening/hole setup.

    Here's a link to the manual:


    And here's a couple of pictures of the opening:


    On the left is typical operation, sorry no size reference for the holes, but they're standard size, approx quarter size, similar to a Lesco spreader. The picture on the right shows the plate hinged back to allow the full flow of salt, penn mulch, etc... you should be able to see that the 3-hole plate fits flush when in use and screws down so there is no chance of it accidentally coming open during normal use.
