“My grandpa’s had H&S equipment and my dad has, and it’s proven itself throughout the years. Yes, we had some other brands in between there, but we’ve always gone back to the H&S because it just seems like they’re more durable and hold up a lot better.”John Swenson, Marshfield, WI
“You guys know as well as I do in the wintertime, when it’s real cold, that takes a lot of stress on this thing. I’ve got to use it every day in the wintertime, cold or not. It’s reliable and I got good service where I bought it from, so it works.”Dennis Hemmersbach | Norwalk, WI
“We bought one 425 back in 2006. It was a really good spreader and we liked it so much that we decided to go back with another one. They’re easy to use, there’s not a lot of moving parts, it’s low-maintenance. Winters in Wisconsin get cold, and they don’t freeze up.”Victor Goettl | Chippewa Falls, WI
“Great spreader and some nice upgrades from the Gehl patent!”Jacob Roskopf | Edgar, WI
“We bought this spreader new in July of 2011. It spreads 2 loads of manure every day. It has been our best spreader we have ever had.”Carter Allen | Smock, PA
