I am toying around with the idea of getting a small spreader for the quad (4x4 Honda Foreman 500). I currently pick stalls with the skid loader (beats the heck out of pushing a wheelbarrow!) and make a manure pile then spread with the tractor & big spreader when the pile gets to a good size.
I was thinking if I used the quad it would be nice to just pick & spread as I go instead of having a pile. It would also mean only putting hours on one piece of equipment instead of 2 and would only have to dump gas in one piece of equipment. It would also be something I would be comfortable letting my boarder use, she does partial care and cleans her own stall. The only downside I can think of is that I won't have a bunch of broken down manure for all of my friends & family to use on their garden come spring.
So, anyone use one? What brand? Do you like it? Is it worth the investment when I already have a tractor & spreader?
