    the other question i have is how do you wire the spreader in? is it a wireless controll or do i have to wire in some sort of plug on the back of my truck that the spreader pulgs into.

    snow ex 575, about 4 years old, could use come paint around the bottom but otherwise works. The controller is mounted in the cap with a hot to the fuse box and a loam to the spreader. Simple and takes about an hour or so to set it up. Looking around 400-ish. I can email you some pictures if you would like.

    Do Yourself A Favor And Stay Away From The Hitch Mounts And Invest In A Swing Away Unit Cost A Lil More But Well Worth It In The Time It Saves You When Loading The Truck
