    If your variable speed spreader is set to maximum speed, does the "burst" feature still throw farther? Or is it already maxed out. If so, will you burn the motor up if you use it frequently?

    the "10" setting is pretty much the top. If you get anything more out of it pushing the burst button it's not much. I doubt you'll burn anything up but I don't think it will gain you much if anything.

    Thanks. It's hard to tell just listening with the window down, and hard to see any difference at night. I'll post back if I can actually notice a difference. Still looking for a 7' 6" ST Blade.
