Default ATV Lime DROP Spreaders

I’ve been doing some searching regarding ATV based Drop Style Lime Spreaders for dispensing BULK AG LIME on hunt club food plots.

From what I can tell there are only three companies that have equipment designed specifically to do this. They are

http://www.thebetterspreader.com/products/ ($2,400.00)

http://www.groundbusters.com/
- 500 Lb. Economy Lime Spreader ($1,295.00)
- 1000 Lb. Economy Lime Spreader ($1,950.00)
- 1000 Lb. Deluxe Lime Spreader ($3,150.00)

http://www.lillimer.com/ ($2,400.00)

Both “The Better Spreader” and Lil Limer companies only have a single piece of equipment to do this whereas Groundbusters has multiple configurations of their piece of equipment.

One of the key features I’m looking for is the ability to “Lock out the dispensing mechanism” when moving between locations with the equipment filled with lime or fertilizer.

It seems that only the Lil Limer (using a Hub Key) and the Groundbuster “DELUXE” model (locks out when dispensing ports are closed) provide this ability.

Has anyone used any of these or do you know anyone that has used any of these devices???

When discussions about these come up most folks immediately talk about how the equipment will only be used once ever 2-3 years depending upon the PH of the soil. However, my thoughts are that these are more than just for spreading lime in that they should also be able to spread fertilizer on the plots every year as well. I would think their versatility in that respect could make the cost of them a little more palatable.

ANY thoughts, comments, discussions on these would be helpful and GREATLY appreciated.

Tks
Carlie
