wish i didn't have a tailgate spreader, other wise I'd be all over this setup. Looks sweet!!!!
We also have a slide on model - its just the utlity lights, no strobe. If you have a 1" clearance between your hitch receiver and your sander, it would just slide over the hitch on your sander. you can check it out on www.back-upbuddy.com.
Did he ever send u those photos? If not i can shoot some over. I have a Snow Ex spreader.
Sorry for taking so long to get back to you guys. Its been non-stop here with this snow. Now everyone wants to know if i can remove it from their roofs. If you can, send over the pictures - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your interest in the Back-up Buddy. As to how much salt water they can take, we don't recommend submerging them in salt water as yes they are marine grade switches and wires, which are meant to handle exposure to salt water, but not meant for prolonged submersion. I have submerged mine in fresh water pulling out my jet ski and did not have any issues, but cannot guarantee it. Like any electrical component its not recommended. The bulbs are sealed but the housing on the halogens are not. The LED lights and housings are sealed. I have had a strobe model with 50Watt Halogens on the back of my truck for three years with a sander running right above it, spraying sand and salt all over it and haven't had a problem. Again I don't recommend submersion and cannot guarantee it.
As far as the output on the lights - The halogen is a flood beam, the LED is a narrower beam. The halogen lights are a more yellowish light versus the LED which are a whiter light. If you go to page one or two of this thread I have posted pictures of the different lights.
If you have any other questions let me know.
I am getting a 1875snowex salter this week,and would like to know if this buddy will fit with this salter on it has a swing gate on a F 350 and the shoot leans tword the driver side
From what I can tell it looks like you should have no problem. Once you get the spreader is installed take a look at the dimensions. When the Back-up Buddy unit is in the hitch receiver, the top of the unit will be 1 inch up from the hitch receiver and the lights will extend out to the left and right 9 inches from the hitch receiver. If you purchase and it doesn't work for you, we do offer a "no hassle" 30 day money back guarantee. Hope this help let me know if you have any other questions.
