    Has any one ever heard of one of these? I just got a mailer today and thought it was quite innovative. You can either load bulk or bags and, get this, you leave the salt IN the bags.:confused: Take a look at it here:http://www.buzzboxaction.com/products_bag_spreader.php

    Not sure that I would buy one, but someone sure did their homework.

    I think thats pretty slick. I wonder if the price for the leaf loader is an additional 6k or that includes everything, you could build one hell of a leaf box for well under 500 bucks and get a nice leaf loader for around 3-4k.

    buzz box hahha you guys thats been in production for some time, testing really.

    its from the guys that owned blizzard plows. they sold off the plows and ran with the buzz box. its a good idea for guys that have no way to load one with a skid or loader. gives you big capacity like a v for bagged product.

    its a specfic app if you ask me.

    Agreed. Getting stuck with one of the penetrating rods or cut by the knives seems high on the list. But if you wanted something that was versitile and not dedicated to one function, I think this would be the ticket.

    ----------------------------------

    It looks like the prices are for the complete setup for that function. Each item is listed as Long box with___________. They really should break it down more.

    it seems a little bit expensive unless you are going to use just bagged product. It had better include the leaf vac because I can build a kicka$$ one for about forty five hundred dollars.

    Shifting weight

    Just wonder about the weight shifting back. V box the material shift down over the bottom as of the box, but it still spread out front to back. In this set up after the you start flowing your load is pushed back. Would it be enough to give you a change in driving?

    Now I run alot of baged stuff and I aways have to get rid of the bags over the years.Stacked empty bags take less room but smashed bags at the end must block the path of salt. But I do like the multi uses of this box just not the price would love to be the test guy..

    and this has an advantage over a v box how? The only time we used bagged was when we didnt have enough accounts to justify a v box cost.

    Bags are usually a lot more expensive per ton anyways.
