Fertilizer Hopper

Postby Michael Beck » Sat Apr 18, 2009 8:02 am

Any one know of a source for just a hopper. Would like to replace the original hopper so I can restore it and not use it.

There are brand new reproductions available from Wenger's. Plastic hopper and new bottom. Sometimes they list them on Ebay as a buy-it-now. Expensive at some $400 dollars but at least they are available.

Good idea to preserve the originals. I am reluctant to use mine but if you clean it after every use, it will last. Some suggest dunking the bottom in diesel, but that sure make a mess.

Ther was a recent thread that showed the use of a plastic bucket as a replacement. Not pretty, but cheap.
Best,
Mike
