    Bought it used last year, used only twice using maybe 5-6 bags of salt in it. It's been sitting all year. The lower bearing is ceased and needs to be replaced ($30 online). Other than that it's a working unit, it works really well. I just don't like that you basically have to put the salt in when you're going to use it and not drive with it full like in a box. I haven't put it on my truck this year, not even for this last storm, and have no plans to do so. It's a hitch mount for a 2" receiver (NOT the swing away!) Spreads salt, and Ive heard you can use it to spread a dry sand mix too.

    It could use a good cleaning, which I will do before any visits. The metal on it is a little rusty on the surface. Comes with the basic controls (On-Off-Spray) and the harness which is still in my truck. No optional light or vibrator.

    Besides the lower bearing being seized it works fine. I have no plans on using it, it's too heavy for me to put on and remove alone, and loading bags of salt puts a strain on me (I was diagnosed with lyme disease this summer and haven't fully recovered).

    Asking $600 obo.

    Sorry, I didn't know this was replied to :p I'm not coming anywhere near IL any time soon :)

    Ultimately I've decided not to sell it because of recent storms. Sorry
