Felt I should say that was a joke before I get reported to the H&S

The first time I started the 3600 I got covered is sh1t as there was no cover on top of the exhaust to stop water going in and it had been sitting around for a while. Job no 1, apply Exhaust weather cover cap

Remember I started a 135 one time with a can on the exhaust that I forgot to remove. Off it flew and I thought it was gone till it fell back to earth via my head. It bloody hurt that did

said id come back to this, was spreading a bit of fert saturday and there was a galv meal trough in corner of the feild, i obviously didnt get the shutter off in time as when i went to trough on sunday there were a few bits in it. they had just barely began to dissolve and when i wiped them out of it with a hand full of grass you could straight away see where they had been you could see the galv had been removed from under the grains

This is what worries me but I am assured that if washed after use and not left overnight that this will not happen. I have a Galv sower ordered so I will soon know.

I got a cavallo spreader about 5,years ago. I was told when I got it that the hopper would rust but the rest of it wouldn't. The under part of it has now started to rust. I gave €1,400 for it new. It can hold 500kg of 18-6-12.
I always wash it after use.

Has it the stainless steel hopper? I don't see why it would rust. I have one here since 2001, and the hopper is still like new.....

The hopper is good. It is the frame underneath that has started to rust.
