    we bought regular buyers spreader [600#] and bought low profile for my new truck. Works great & I really like controller. Bought from Angelo's supply for
    $799.00 {best price I found anywhere} paid for itself 1st storm!

    yeah, were definitely happy. I wish I got both buyers in low profile spreader.
    I like the way the motor is inside of hopper. The controller fit perfectly in my dash below stereo, looks like it was stock option.

    I had to buy one for reciever mount & it was too low, went to parts dealer
    & had to buy a longer hitch mount [$63 bones]. I think I have at least one
    complete set that you buy for $150-200. let me know, I'll check & see if I do.
    you can mount to your bumper, but we prefer hitch mount

    Pro Flo? Can you give more details on it. I have the Buyers salter. It works fine but it seems to flow the material too slow for my taste. I have to move SSSOOOOO slow inorder for the correct amount of salt to be spread.

    Thanks for your help.

    I believe he is talking about the Western Pro Flo. Its holds 950 lbs of salt mounts to your hitch or the bed of your truck. A GREAT spreader. Has a light on the back when you hit the break . Its about 1,600-1,900 new.
    The always have them used on E-bay. You can find great deals on them. A lot of plow jockeys use them and end up selling them becasue they don't want to plow anymore. Now is the best time to look most people think the season is over and I HAVE BEEN SEEING THINGS DIRT CHEAP. I seen one about 3 weeks ago go for 600.oo I think they have a 500 model up now somewhere unless it ended.
    Compared to these veterns I am not a snowologist but I think if you use what you have now and sell in November you can get pretty much what you piad for it becasue most of the time they are out of stock and new plow jockeys start wanting to learn how to plow and the selection is very limited around that time of year.:)
