    Anyone interested in a 4-ton salt spreader thats been attached to a trailer?

    It's got a chain and gear drive not belt. Wisconsin Gas Motor and a 20 foot electric cable so that the control box will reach inside the truck. I used to tow it around with our one-ton pick up without any problems. I dont have my camera today so I'll have to take pictures on Monday and post them or i can email directly to you.

    Any idea how much you're looking to get out of it?

    That's so funny I had basically the same salter painted red with a pintle hoo up and the same jack, mine would hold 5 ton though.

    it's in great condition, but that's mainly due to it being a back up salter. Home made, custom built trailer to hold the salter. it's perfect for guys just starting off commercially, because you tow it to the lot, plow then hook up and salt, you dont have to worry about the tail gate salters blocking your view while backing up. i was thinking i wanted to get around $6,000.00 for it, what do you think?

    Brand new tires on the trailer. Make an offer and we'll negotiate.

    New Price!

    Willing to part ways with this for $2,500.00

    The thing was never used, it was my back up machine. It sat inside my back barn 24/7. Heavy duty trailer, custom built special for this salter. Control box stretches all the way to the cab of your pick-up.

    It's a nice looking unit. Too bad you're so far away.

    I have never seen one pulled either but if you had a few big lots and did n't have a big truck to a sander in or wanter to not have to get another truck that would be great not good for small stuff
