    Yes,they can

    You can buy them to fit,but they are pricey.We have adapted a regular tailgate spreader to fit (just made mounting brackets),and we had to build a shield to prevent the material from flowing back into the truck bed as the dump insert had a rounded bottom.Any good fab shop should be able to do it.

    I seen a Downeast baby model electric the other day at one of my dealers. Well built unit, around $2000.00 installed.

    One of my good Friends has two of these units. He has no complaints, and says they work very well for him.
