    I have an Exmark Z hp 52". has anyone ever seen a broadcast spreader mounted on the back of one of these?

    Not in the back....but I have one I mount of the front. Also have a Permagreen spreader/sprayer. The spreader on the Z works great with the Permagreen having no advantage over it except for the spraying with I dont use.

    Knock them yards out...........

    Well I run an Agri-Fab 175 lb. tow behind spreader made to pull behind an ATV. The difference is the controls for the spreader are mounted high up at the same level as the top of the tub. They are still too far away to control from the seat of my ZTR so I made a handle extension so I can reach it from my seat.

    The spreader was on sale at TSC for $146.00. It's very heavy duty with ATV float tires and all heavy duty components. I then did the fabrication for a handle extention.

    We run a Jerco spreader on our Lesco Viper. It works ok. I would rather have a Permagreen:) Its more accurate and easier to get into tight spots.
