    there is usually only room for 2. just give the 2 bigger shovels to make up for the 3rd one.

    I saw a couple guys last winter with salt sand mix in the back of a pickup with a salter like that and one guy was driving the truck one was in the bed shoveling salt sand into the little salter and another guy walking along beside the little salter whacking it with a shovel im guessing to keep it flowing, i nearly pissed my pants watching them.
