    Do you have a 3 point spreader for your tractor? That's what I use almost exclusively. They work amazingly well.

    Such as.....? Just my own personal experience I am all over the place. That all I use. From 1/8 acre to 8 acres. Very fast.

    Sorry I know I'm not answering your question about a utv spreader. I like my 300+ 3 point hopper :)

    I’ve had great luck with my Fimco spreader with the hitch mount. For big fertilizing jobs I’ve used my truck. 800lbs of urea is a breeze when you’ve got a shuttle in the back of the truck & a guy continually shoveling it into the spreader. For smaller jobs it’s easy to just use the ranger. 0 complaints.

    I second this. FIMCO isn't super great quality but for the price and what you need it for, it's perfect IMO

    I have a swisher reciever mounted spreader that does a good job. Holds 150#

    I also have a fimco...had it since 2016...its rusted, beat up and looks like a piece of chit, but it has never failed. It works, nothing fancy but it works

    I've got a spreader that I used for two days. Bought it new a few years ago when I had my farm. Bolts onto ATV.
    If your interested I paid $500. $250 delivered to fairfield.

    I have a spin tech seeder 40 lb that I have used for over ten years. I have replaced motor once but have used ALOT. 10-20 acres of plots a year plus other things like fertilizer, waterways, lawn seed, or even native seedlings (with a carrier “like floordry or fertilizer”. I wire it to a toggle on utv and closes automatically when not engaged. I would recommend for an inexpensive seeder but would probably buy the 100 lb model if doing again and knew the extent I would use! Not sure if available locally, I bought at the theisen store way back when but still available on line last I knew...

    I had one of these and motor went bad after first season. I was pretty disappointed. Got mad and chucked it in the dumpster at work.
