The Skagit Conservation District has Rankin Cone Spreader available for rent to Skagit Residents. This spreader is a self-contained, towable implement that can be operated by almost any vehicle. It has a ground driven, cast iron, oil bath gearbox that can be disengaged when transporting. It is ideal for spreading seed, fertilizer, sand, and salt. The large 16" diameter x 6.5" wide tires make this a “Turf Friendly” implement and can be hitched to any 2” ball.
The spreader is available for a $25/day or $50/weekend fee to offset insurance and maintenance costs. Landowners are required to pick up the spreader at our Mount Vernon office or plan a delivery with staff. SCD can deliver for an additional fee of $2.00 per mile.
Rental Fee: Daily $25/Weekend $50 (Friday PM to Monday AM)
Cleaning Deposit: $100 (will be refunded upon return and approval)
