    I was surfing ebay looking to buy a new controller.When there was an ad to repair salt contollers. So i figured what the heck.
    It said for $75 he will do everything he can for it to run. If not i owe him nothing.So i sent both of my broken boxes. One the spinner wouldnt turn on and the other was the auger. As this video shows he fixed them both.

    I don't know hot to copy and paste your link on youtube to make it work. Could you actually either post his email address or an actual link so I can save this for future reference please?

    Salt doggs are junk. I wouldn't even bother having it get fix. You will end up spending more money to have it fixed again and again. Just buy a better brand of Salter. That's what I did.

    Dumb-***ed comment. The salters are fine. Plenty of people running them all over this site with no problems whatsoever. The controllers ARE junk, but if you can get a better controller, or the factory one repaired for a decent price you're just fine.

    That's interesting. We have 6 of them and have not had any major problems.

    SaltDogg has now introduced a new controller for their spreaders. I have been running it this winter with no issues other than a blown internal 40A fuse. I would suggest making the switch to the Karrier spreader controllers, over purchasing or repairing an older SaltDogg OEM.
