View Full Version : hope for spreading lime

This past weekend I was able to spread 2 ton of lime on one of my plots using a 400lb cylinder spreader from King Kutter. I had been told by just about everyone that you could not do this due to the lime clumping. The lime I used was bagged AG lime and I would only fill the spreader with 300 lbs or so. I was seriously considering buying a drop lime spreader like the groundbuster up until now. I am glad I tried it. I hope this helps anyone out there that thinks the only way to spread AG lime is to buy a $2000.00 spreader!!!!

Just finished spreading 22.6 ton of lime yesterday. Used a 8' ezzy flow drop spreader I found next to a farm I was surveying. Guy was tired of mowing around it and said I could take it off his hands for $40. Little bit of oil and some maintance and it worked just find.
