    I'm interested in buying a Fisher tailgate spreader from a guy in MA. He wants $600 for it and said that he just put a brand new larger motor in it for $450 this week. (seems very high?) It also has an after market spot light on it. It does not come with a controller. I have a few questions: Is this a good spreader for bagged salt? Is it worth $600? Thanks!

    What does a controller cost? Does it come with the wiring harness? What model spreader? I have installed a few but do not have one myself.

    I just spoke to the seller again and it doesn't seem worth it. It does not come with a controller, a cover or lid for the spreader and no wiring harness. I would also have to buy and install my own wiring harness and a switch.

    was this a private sale or a dealer?
