Why would you even consider a box spreader. The V types can fine spread/top dress with persision, and you can go down your drive way or a highway without drizzling loose cow juice all over the road. They also have a minumum of moving parts.

I had one of those things. Never again,unless it's maybe one of the side slingers. I had a Meyer 3254 rear unload. They were fine for slop,but I ruined it trying to haul pen manure. There are carriers at the back of those augers with a nylon bushing in them. They need liquid to lubricate them. On mine,the ends of the augers got cut right off from the wear. I found some pipe that fit inside them with a little force,so I welded both of'em back together,but when one broke for the second time,it went to the scrapper and I bought a New Idea 3732 box spreader.

I was refering to Knight and Gehl side deliveries. Myers built a decent box spreader but the one you described was a poor excuse for a spreader.
