    Default drop spreader

    Does anyone know what spreader this is? I bought it at a auction on saturday. It looks like a big one it just a smaller version. There is no name or serial number on it. Any information would be appreciated.

    Looks very much like an IH (McCormick Deering) #6 drop spreader to me.....

    If possible, post a picture of the in/out of gear locking mechanism on the hub. I can tell more from that than any other indentifying feature.

    There are three kinds of men;
    1.) The ones that learn by reading
    2.) The few who learn by observation
    3.) The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

    As far as I can tell there isn't any gear to lock in. The agitator turns all the time. You have to shut the gate to stop the flow.

    The spreader is 4 foot wide and 19 inches tall if that helps any in identifying this spreader.

    Sears sold a "David Bradley" brand spreader. No part #'s showing anywhere?

    There are no part numbers or anything else to help to identify it.

    Looks good but the first thing I would do is clean and check the chain to be sure it rolls smoothly then spray with a good chain lube.

    There is no chain at all. The beaters are driven by the axle shaft that goes to the tires.
