    Says he is sueing Rugby too so I assume it was a tailgate unit? I'm sure Russ will know more of what type of spreader it was.

    That's a really sad story but I don't see what the point of the lawsuit is. The equipment is not meant to be worked on when it was running hence the controls being in the cab of the truck. Not only that but loose clothing and jewelery is a major no no around any type of running equipment (not that you should be even that close to begin with). Its only speculation because we don't know the exact circumstances but if that happened up here we wouldn't be suing anyone, the Ministry of Labour would be walking away with our company for safety violations.

    from reading the article it sounds like the unit was a Buyers under-tailgate installed on a Rugby dump body bought from a Chevy dealership.
