You do not have a Mounting bar available for my Ariens 42 inch Zero turn mower.
I have the spreader but no mounting bar designed or available for the spreader.
You have left it up to me to solve how to get a mounting bar designed and built.
Mowere is an Ariens Ikon 42 Kawasaki    Model No. 918002

Unusable without mounting bar and there was no mention of 
Of it when I ordered it. When I tried to order the 
Mounting bar they didn’t have it. 

Very disappointing

Excellent results already. I am very pleased with all the features of this spreader. I would definitely recommend it. Professionals can use it for diversity on their zero turns and DIY guys can turn their zero turns into a professional
level spreader with basic knowledge of seeds, fertilizers and application rates. If you pay high dollar fees to get your property fertilized, the cost of this spreader is absorbed quickly. Highly recommended!

Can’t tell you how many spreaders I’ve broken over the years.  I finally splurged on this and have zero regrets.  I’ve fertilized, over seeded and put down Pelletier d lime so far.  All three products were super easy to soread.

Go ahead and splurge! You won’t be disappointed.

5 Stars!!! I installed it within an hour of receiving it.  I was trying to get my pre-emergent down as time was running out.  This neat spreader made it a breeze!!  I had an old pull behind for my commercial zero turn and it bit the dust.  Granted this is expensive but try pricing out a stand alone spreader and you will quickly change your mind.  They run around 10K or more for most of the commercial grade spreaders and you have another engine to upkeep to boot.  Storage of this JRCO Electric Broadcast is easy after use.  Just hang on the wall in my garage off the floor.  Very highly recommend and super pleased!  The staff at Jack's was awesome as well!  This was my first time using them but not the last.

Spreader worked great after I had to put snap ring back on spreader fan to make it work properly

Mounts easy, works really well. I have two acres of grass and I can fertilize in 40 minutes. I love it.
