    Hi i am looking for a very small fertiliser spreader preferably new with manual cutoff. Which type do ye think is the best?

    Any wagtail spreader would make the most sense, not to expensive and very reliable, as for make I don't really know but if you look on done deal you'll find plenty of new ones.

    Have a small old Vicon here but starting to give us issues etc and thinking of upgrading altogether rather than spending that money fixing her. Anyone have recommendations for a small spreader that aren’t too ridiculously priced at new? We don’t spread too much but still would like it to go out correctly.

    A new 600kg Cosmo comes for just less than 3k I've been told.

    Hard to beat a Vicon. There’s a man in Killimor, East Galway that specialises in them. Sorry don’t know his name but he is into vintage rallies too so if you know anyone local that’s also interested in vintage stuff they might know him.

    If the seat's wet, sit on yer hat, a cool head is better than a wet ar5e.

    Farmers Depot have small spreaders on their website… do these look any good?

    If your going cheap, buy a wagtail, especially one that will a big bag or even better a ton. I bought a second hand cosmo one for €700 and it’s extremely accurate for what someone that spreads less than 20 ton a year.

    One strong word of advice. Stay a million miles away from those single disk spreaders. Both them and haybobs need to be reversed into a big hole and never seen again
