Why don’t you get the bed stretched to improve weight distribution it’s not a big job or that expensive to do, the fabricators at my yard do it to lorries most weeks.

I don’t think it would make that much difference to be honest. A few quick calculations tell it will only shift 300 kgs of weight if it’s perfect, so I’m not sure it’s that important. If I wanted to shift lots of weight it would look daft.

B G Penny and Co in Coventry. If you want anything done, speak to Malcolm Penny.

£1900 for the body and 50 odd parts to be shot blast, zinc primed and powder coat. It would be a lot less if the steel was new but thick rust and existing powder coat takes a lot of getting off.
Have used B G Penny many times before , Always ready on time as agreed

Looking forward to this. So, something a bit like this? Can’t see what they’ve done with the exhaust. (Pic from Mercedes website)

They all look very heavy, with small diameter wheels. Most trailed spreaders have big tall wheels like muck spreaders. I don't understand the almost obsession with self propelled machines.
Pete - the big A is virtually unbeatable at spreading the weight - emulate that and you'll not go far wrong.
