near dyersville iowa
so i bought a manure spreader. meyers m390. looks in ok shape. got it home. hauled 3 loads. was going good. but right at the end of the 4th load, the apron chain jumped a notch on one side. got to looking and the chain tightener bolt had broken. so, because im new to the whole apron spreader thing, im going to ask if that was the probable cause, or a result of a different problem? and also, what is the easiest way to jump the chain back to straight? I tried to loosen the other side and bar it over, unsuccesful so far. I also have no manual for this spreader, but i think there is one on the meyers website that i havent found yet. any other tips and tricks are also welcome.
