There comes a point in our lives where we wonder what life was like before ATV Spreaders was invented. But that only happens after you try spreading salt, seeds, fertilizers and other elements using your ATV as the hauling vehicle. Yes, the first segment of this paragraph was meant to be read humorously, but there's nothing humorous about the awesome value you get from a Cycle Country or Swisher ATV Spreader.
Chances are your ATV already comes equipped with a sturdy and heavy duty tubular rack, just begging for some real time usage on the field. Your ATV's front or rear rack, plus the respective mounting kit is all you need to hook up these ATV Spreaders onto your specific ATV. The only question remaining is which brand you want to go with, both of them are powerhouses in the ATV Spreader world. In life, we get special moments where everything seems to make sense, this is one of them.
This spreader does not have an agitator in the seed hopper. Some bearded seeds (such as fescue and bromegrass) can bridge over the seed gate opening and cause erratic seed flow which will result in skips and misses in the spread pattern. The above problem can be helped by mixing the seed with dry sand (50/50 mix) then adjust the seed gate accordingly to compensate. The spreader will not work with rock salt. It will spread granular calcium chloride, if dry and free flowing.
