    Never seen one in person , but researched a while ago.Looks like a good set up if you can leave material on site. Bobcat makes one ,also Reist,eastern farm equip and many other manufacturers.

    I think it's new to Herd but I have seen other manufacturers before. Seen one (scoop and spread) to fit on the 3 point of a tractor too I believe.

    We've got something similar to that. We've had it about 4 years. The brand is Thomas (like the skidloader brand). It worked really good for us when all the particular site needed was 1 dedicated skidloader, and we could keep salt there too. The only thing that would make it better, is if the whole thing was made out of stainless.

    we have had a Thomas for 9 years-never washed it and it still works. Ideal for spot treatments (more precise). We need to hold the hopper over the top of the cab to get a decent spread with wet material (treated salt) which is a little sketchy when driving a 2-speed skid steer.

    first i have seen of that ! looks cool bu would only work if you had on site salt and seems you would have to fill it 20 times. sweet idea for condos and big aprts that do there stuff inhouse thanks for showing that cool idea
