    I been using this spreader to run bagged, and tried bulk but didnt work. At the time I didnt have a vibrator on the spreader, so I didnt know if bulk will go through with a vibrator attached. If anyone had success with this, it would be greatly appreciated. Or if you could suggest a tailgate spreader that would run bulk. Thanks

    My buddy runs a vibrator on his and has no problem. Just dont leave the salt in there to long.

    Just like ^^Drottlawn^^ said, if you have a vibrator, you will be fine. I have one that I used for a season doing that, and it worked great. You may want to build a smaller screen, or hand shovel the salt in there, because I had a big rock jam mine once. That would be my only suggestion.

    I have the mirco pro one and the salt would get stuck so I used a piece of wire just to help it along.
