I have an older Gandy box. Did some google searching. Really couldn't find much information on dealers or places to buy parrts other than through Gandy. So I called Gandy & priced some items. I have the box, just the part with the spouts are missing. Buddy of mine has a set up. 4 spouts, and a "bander/defuser" to help spread the powder per spout. I priced the bander. She stated its $72 per bander. She said most forage applications they skip the bander and just let anhydrous hose hang down. Inoculant dealer says they come 2 to a box, $72 per box. I called Gandy back and she said they ship 2 per box, but the price is always so much per bander. Said 3-4 years ago, they were around $30 a bander, but not anymore.
So what Im asking is, anyone that uses a set up like this, do you use a bander or just hose? If you use a bander, did you get your parts any place else than through gandy? Lady said that the only time a bander is used is for pestacide applications. So is there other sources to purchase a bander? If a person can buy one for say $10, which is about what I think something like that should cost Im sure it probably helps to spread the powder more. If they cost 40-80$ a bander Im really not sure if its worth it or not.
