    I believe John DiMartino has one, aside from a small idle control issue last storm, it has worked well for him.

    I have a bradford SS spreader.It has worked great for me.The thing i like is its lightweight,at 400 lbs.It is only a 1 yard box though.I used to reload about 4-5X during a storm when i used sand/salt mix.Its amazing how far only 1 yard or magic salt will go in comparison.I can do my entire route in 2 loads pretreating.If you have any questions about these units,feel free to ask.
