Yes, you will need either kit number GAK-020 or MGK-020 to help regulate the flow of pelletized and granular materials. GAK-020 includes an adjustable stainless steel gate, which can be controlled from the cab by a 10-foot cable. MGK-020 is a newer kit that is cheaper and a little easier to install. The difference with MGK-020 is that you canít adjust the material flow from the pickup cab. You have to walk back to your spreader and adjust the gate by hand.
