I'm getting a 77 Ford single axle with a 6 yard Sander in it. I'm thinking, if I have a good tight fitting cover made for it, I could route the exhaust to the sander to warm it up ad I drive. Could I leave the sander filed and ready to go?
Years ago we had 2 trucks that we ran the exhaust through the sander and it worked great but we kept it inside at night but the garage wasn't heated after about 20 minutes of driving time the sand was nice and warm. Been thinking about doing it to the truck I picked up last year but it's stainless and I'm not sure if I want to cut holes in it.
Common sense isn't so common anymore!
True. I just don't understand how a pile of sand sitting on the ground won't freeze, but you put that same sand in a sander, it will freeze.
It can/will...at least when its on the ground you can break it up with the bucket some before you put it in the spreader. Let it freeze up around the auger real good and see how that works out for you.

It's called wind chill. The wind cannot get underneath/between the pile on the ground. The sand in your spreader which is elevated in your truck with more surface area exposed and a smaller quantity will freeze, starting at the bottom of the spreader where the smallest amount is.
You can always try it. It will be lots of fun. Please post pictures.
Not quite as easy as salt in a spreader and a couple of jugs of windshield washer fluid to help get it flowing either.
