I’m looking for an spreader that I can easily attach (not a pull behind) to my atv for spreading lime and fertilizer. I only three acre plot.

What size would you suggest?

What make/model would you suggest?

I use a Moose ATV spreader. Not cheap, about $550, but well made. It attaches easily and comes with a rheostat so rotation speed can be adjusted on the fly.

I have Agri-Fab 150 lb tow behind spreader. JUNK. Parts corode and break. I had to weld rebar on all cross bars to keep from bending. Constant repairs.

I don't know what brand mine is, but most of them are pretty much alike. The first thing I did with my current one was have bedliner shot on the inside and on the spreader plate. That was in 2003 and I don't have any corrosion yet. I've had to patch the plate a couple times with canned spray on bedliner but that beats having it rust out in a few years. I always wash it out and pour a dollop of cheap motor oil in the gates when I'm done also. If you buy a poly spreader, I'd recommend spraying the plate with bedliner before you ever use it.

Edit: My bad, I thought we were talking about tractor spreaders.

I've been using a Moultrie 12 volt spreader and it works great. Cost about $100 and I would buy another one if needed. I use it on 1 ac plots.

I don't remember what brand, but I had one that corroded very badly and the motor quit spinning. Also, make sure you wash your ATV really well after spreading fertilizer or it will corrode as well...

AS Mike mentioned using a spreader on the back of the ATV will play heck on your ATV if you dont wash it ASAP. After seeing what it did to my buddys I would go with a pull behind spreader and keep that stuff away from my ride
