    Does anyone run a Buyers stainless steal salt dogg, and run magic salt through it? I am looking at buying one but afraid it wont have the muscle to throw the salt as far as I would like.

    It would be wise of you to go with a downeaster unit for your truck. We run one with magic salt and it throws it farther than the saltdogg that we used to use.

    I have a Stainless Salt Dogg but i have not ran magic salt through it. But i have ran regular screened sand/salt mix through it and it seems to have no trouble throwing it 15'-20' from the sides of the truck. Dont know if that is the answer you are looking for.

    I think that's on par with what I'm looking for. I know my salt dogg poly will launch dry salt but magic it doesn't like to throw as far. Just don't want to buy a stainless steal if it wont throw.

    I know a bunch of guys just bought them any use yet?

    Just but a downeaster and your good. It will solve all of your salt throwing issues.
