    I have a SHPE750 Salt spreader that I will be rarely using this winter and I need a controller for it. I got boned by a guy on here that had one for $160, Sent the $ 2 months ago and havent seen it yet. Wont pick-up the phone or anser emails. I cant justify the $500 expense for a new one and I am wondering if anyone has made one themselves, and would care to share how they did it. Or if it is at all possible. Thanks in advance.

    Maybe you should let everyone else know who this person is so they don't go through this same thing.
    It may also help you to get this issue resolved. Someone on here might know this person and be located nearby, maybe inquire as to what the problem is.

    Do you understand exactly what is required? These units have a burst start feature to start the motors, overload protection, reverse feature, and vibrator control plus the rheostats strong enough to handle the loads. How are you at building circuit boards?

    Or you could go Ghetto, just get some REAL HEAVY switches and wire it on/off and run like he!! while she dumps material.
