    I pulled up behind a competitors truck today and saw a bed salter that only took up half of the bed...... but length wise. It was skinny! Looked like a Meyers. It was a low profile as well. Anybody have any input on these ones or the best low profile in box spreaders? Its time to upgrade from the tailgate Airflows.

    We have a Diamond/Meyer 3/4 yard, 6' hopper sander. Actually it is made by Swenson. I'll try to get a pic. Works real well. Can fit in a shortbox truck. We had it in a 1/2 ton Chevy for a while.

    Beyers, Curtis, Swenson/Meyer/Diamond, Downeaster all make smaller V-boxes. Here are some pics of ours.
