    I need some help and opinions. Need to get 1 or 2 spreaders for calcium for a contract I have. I need something that will hold a good amount and work well with out getting clogged up. Any help would be great. Thanks

    Yes it will spread all type's of deicer's,but you need to keep the flow gate almost all the way closed or you will spread most of your deicer in a hurry. With rock salt I keep the gate open all the way. When I spread all other deicer's I open it about 1/4 of the way. You just need to play with it to see how it will work. There is a guy on ebay who sell's them about 120.00 I think. Do a search for salt spreader.

    Good Luck Mike
