    I saw this truck on truckpaper. I am curious as to why they have those extra salters on the back? Shouldn't the 7500 be plenty of coverage? What is the point of the 1575 bulks? I feel like all they would do is over apply. what is your opinion? Thanks in advance!

    I was thinking about mounting a 575 next to my Vbox for spreading Calcium.

    I would guess he is spreading different type of ice melt, so he keeps salt in the V-Box, and calcium and treated salt in the other two. Just a guess but thats the only thing that makes sense to me.

    I would guess that they are trying to sell them, they are not even plugged in and they are all new.

    Looks like they would interfere with the V box as well.
  10. Hafta agree that it looks like a demo unit or an advertisement pic for someone trying to sell them

    Where did you get a picture of my truck? I drive in a lot of parades. I fill them with candy and use them to deliver the candy to the little kids.:laughing::laughing:
