Buyers 12 Volt ATV Spreader - 100-Lb. Capacity, Model# ATVS100
12-volt ATV SPREADER
The product is effective and useful. Meets my expectations. There are several comments for product improvement.
1. Connecting mechanism while effective for an ATV rack, it does not work directly with my Polaris configuration. I have needed to retrofit the attachment. Consideration to a more effective means to attach the spreader would improve the product.
2. The on/off switch is not located in a easy to reach configuration. As the wiring connections run from the battery to the back of the ATV, there should be a switch which can be located on the handle bars for convenience.
Thanks for this opportunity

I use the spreader to throw sand down on my 400' plus driveway, during icy conditions. I found the motor speed to be so fast that a lot of it goes off the intended area and up behind the seat of my atv. I think that installing a speed control for the motor would help this, or possibly some kind of deflector.

Excellent spreader. Attaches easily to my ATV. It sure beats trying to push/pull my old ground driven spreader around our food plots. Also worked well with lawn care fertilizers. I would advise immediate clean up when using fertlizers and other corrosives to prevent damage to any metal parts. My son also used the spreader attached to his lawn tractor. It attaches easily to the lawn tractor by drilling four small holes, two in each fender. We wired in an adapter for the power cord and it all worked very well.

Good all purpose spreader
I purchased this spreader for use on the lawn and to plant food plots. Be aware that the motor hookup is designed to plug into an accessory outlet. I did not have one on my older model atv so I had to improvise. An adaptor may be available. Overall, a very good product for the money.

Very good product for the money.
I used this spreader for my foodplot maintenance for 3 years. I guess the fertilizer dust finally got to it and it has stopped working. I was very happy with the product and it only cost me about 30 bucks a year to use it. I will be purchasing another for next years maintenance. Thanks for a great product at a great price. I check with Northern Tool first for all my needs.

It's the Best - Factory Must have listened
I recieved the unit yesterday,, last night I assembled it,, and found Nylon nuts for evey bolt,, And listen close Facorty I don't have a ATV... I have a UTV, Utility All Terrain Vehical... Kawasaki 750, Tyrex... tail gate and all... So all you John Deere users it works like a champ... I threw the (U-Bolts) away...(well, not away but for the next project).. Assembled the unit as instructed,,, lowered the tail gate, aligned the unit for clearance and drilled two Hole in the bed of Rex....slide two bolts up and used wing nuts...almost half of the support bracket is supported by the tailgate... It takes less than a couple minutes to take off and store.... One more adder,, opposed to the cotter pin I used a small bolt and nylon nut... It works perfect... I stored ofcourse eight bags of lime in Rex but spread 10 bags of lime and never broke a sweat...

The spreader was a disappointment as the sliding door does not fit tight and small seeds leak out, even when the door is closed. Also, when spreading fertilizer, it throws the fertilizer in the direction of the driver and doesn't spread well.
