CMB Posted November 4, 2008 Report Share Posted November 4, 2008 I had a look through the archives and couldn't find a topic on this lovely Britains implement. I've just received the original orange #9575 (1980-) spreader which replaces the one that was broken when I was five (!) Alas, the wheels don't seem to turn the flail mechanism when they rotate. I compared this one to the 1997-1991 re-release and it seems to lack a plastic spring-washer/clip that fits on the outside of the first cog on the axle, to keep the cog rigid. There seems to be no room for a clip to fit so I assume it was a design fault that was changed and perfected, rather than a factory error The seller assures me it was mint -and it certainly looks unused. Has anybody else got this problem with their 1980 Howard? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
