    I'm curious what you guys think about the AirFlo tailgate spreader. I need a spreader that will allow use of skoria, cinders (3/8"- 1/2") pieces of material to be spread evenly. I'm trying not to buy a bed mounted v-box, I need to be able to haul around a big snow blower. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm in Steamboat Springs, CO so any prices, shipping or dealers would be great.

    It is an excellent unit,just not as popular nowadays due to it's small hopper.It's more geared towards someone who is filling it right out of the back of the truck.

    Can't comment on how it would do with large cinders,but I imagine it would work OK.

    Excellent little spreader,I purchased one of the two Plowking just spoke of last season and it will spread anything you put in it,i would however strongly suggest a vibrator kit,it worked wonders for mine.
