Pulverized (ag) lime is in fact limestone. It is dense, heavy and compacts easily. If the spreader is not designed for pulverized lime it will destroy it post haste!
A drop seeder or a cyclone spreader is not designed for pulverized lime.

Cyclone spreaders will hold more weight than should be carried high with a small tractor and are a rollover hazard. Be safe!

I agree and if it gets damp you will have to use a shovel or a manure spreader like i had to because it is like concrete sometimes you have to make do with what you have or have access to there is suppose to be another way to rase ph some kind of liquid i just can't think of what it is at this moment of corse i changed my mind about what to grow and have been battling ever since to lower the ph down for blueberries been kicking my own ass for ages since then.

Liquid calcium is a thing. Not as effective but plants need calcium as well and it can be sprayed on. Do not mix it with liquid nitrogen or herbicides as it will turn to gel and you will love cleaning the sprayer!
sounds like it happened to you? but look on the bright side every piece of equipment could use a good cleaning it just needs it when you do not have the time.
