    I emailed you a while back, I guess you didn't get it. I don't have any pics, but call SnowEx (they don't have a website) at 1-800-725-8377 and ask them to send you their accessory brochure for their spreaders. They sell an item called a "Gate Assembly", it is the same thing as my RV Dump Valve (the RV Dump Valve is $5.00 in an RV store) and then you just modify the blade to fit around your auger if your motor is underneath the hopper, or if your motor is in the hopper you just glue the valve onto the throat. I really have to get a digital camera, sorry about not having pics...:cry:
