    honestly its a great spreader and i really wish i could afford to keep it and buy the bigger one i want / need. for an electric sander this thing preforms unbelievable, it did everything I wanted it to do and then some. im looking for 3300.00 but would like it go for 3000.00 if u pick it up.... I have a loader to load

    Mike Do you just use the tie downs to secure it or did you bolt it to frame

    there are 4 tie downs welded to the floor of the dump, and then i welded a piece of stainless channel to the back edge of the frame to keep it from sliding foward, it catched the end of the dump where the tailgate would normally be

    how tough is it to install into the truck setting up all the wiring and getting it ready to go? 2-3 hrs work?

    its real simple once you secure it down with the supplied tie downs, its a matter of runner their supplied cables one from the salter to the battery and another harness from the batter / spreader to the control box, took my maybe an hour and a half will have pics up first thing in the mornin sorry for the dely very busy at work today

    This is exactly what I was thinking. No transfer of warranty and nearly as much as a brand new one. To be honest I only paid $2850.00 for my Tornado first season it was offered and I love it. And I load it with bulk salt.

    Best, Ron G
