How old/new fertilizer spreader can I buy without getting electronics.

Hi all
Didn't think buying a second hand spread could be such a minefield.
Our old Amazon spreader died a death this week, although it must be well in its twenties.
Would like a spreader holds max 3 bags. With no computer no electrics, and one you can get parts if needed.
Kuhn, kevernaland, krm, or others.
But all the second hand ones seam to come with agitators, electronic for this that and the other.
How old or what model should I be looking for.
Spreading 24m or less on turf so nothing too big or complicated.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Kuhn Axis 30.1 here, yr2010,only electrics are the road lights.

The electrics are all optional extras, so should be possible to find a simple one.

I have a Kuhn 1142 getting tired now, it only does about 20t of compound a year but it's getting tired and the agitators have packed in, again :( used to see loads of them at sensible money but not so many now :(
 
I went from a amazon to a Kuhn axis and it’s great
just put your fert and speed into the phone app and it’s always nearly bang on with telling you what number to set it at

very simple and loads better than trying to guess out the book on the amazon If you have a new or different fert to spread

Bought a basic Kuhn a couple of years ago, very pleased with it . Was using a amazon before that. I’d price a new on up, unless prices have shot up new seems better value for money than 2nd hand

People usually only sell a fert spreader for one of two reasons, they’re either going to a wider spread width or it’s rotting away!

I’d get a price on a new base spec model, most manufacturers will do something with no electrics and hydraulic shut off. I bought a brand new Sulky dpx28 a few years back for around 6k, was a good basic easy to use spreader. I only traded it in as went to a variable rate system.

Perhaps @Robt has something on offer?

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy
