  1. Gator Fertilizer and salt spreaders

    Gator General Discussion
    I am wanting to add a spreader to my 835R Gator that I can use for salt in the winter and fertilizer in the Summer. JD makes two different ones one for salt and one for Fert. What truly is the difference I really don't want to buy two different units that basically do the same thing.
