    Anyone know of any pull behind spreader that will spread Ag lime. I tend to use Ag lime becouse it is cheaper to buy by the ton as opposed to pelleted lime. I have tried to use a drop spreader but it is slow go. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    When you say AG lime I assume you are talking about powered (polverized)lime. I use a 36" Gandy drop spreader behind my riding tractor for the open areas and a 24" push for the tight spots. Gandy units range from 2' to 6'in width. I like the Allendale brand of lime best.
