RE:Á???????ÁThe tariff classification of various parts for a lawn fertilizer/seeder spreader from China.

Dear Mr. Anderson:

Á???????ÁIn your letter dated December 2, 2000, on behalf of SmartSourceNow International, Llp, you requested a tariff classification ruling. You submitted samples and a drawing with your request.

Á???????ÁThe first article in question, identified as a "spreader driver", consists of a plastic spreader plate and gear box assembly and steel rotor shaft which attaches the two pieces together. The spreader driver enables the spreader plate to disperse the seeds or fertilizer onto the lawn. The second article is called rest legs, which consist of two black painted bent steel rod legs attached together by two metal clips which keeps the bottom of the two legs together and allows the top of the legs to swivel out to attach to the lawn spreader. These legs allow the lawn spreader to remain upright when idle. The third article, identified as a rotor shaft, is the identical part used in the spreader driver. It is not further worked after importation and is specifically designed and used only as a part for the spreader driver.

Á???????ÁThe applicable subheading for the spreader driver and rest legs for a lawn spreader will be 8432.90.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for parts of seeders, planters, transplanters, manure spreaders and fertilizer distributors. The rate of duty will be free.

Á???????ÁThe applicable subheading for the rotor shaft will be 8483.10.5000, HTS, which provides for other transmission shafts and cranks. The rate of duty will be free.

Á???????ÁThis ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

???Á???????ÁA copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Patrick J. Wholey at 212©637©7036.
