    There was a post here earlier where they asked to rate the spreaders on order and it went hydraulic, electric and then gas. That shocked me because I thought the electric would be weak. I have never had one but I can tell you that the Air-Flow gas is very good as mine is 9 yrs old and still going. It is a SS though.
