    I hate when this happens..Then the guy on the loader said sorry I will not charge for this..But the money I save on the salt I spend cleaning the truck and my time...I seen this guy do this all the time the higher the salter the more salt he put in...

    Looks perfect to me less trips to get salt = more productivity = higher profit margin. Maybe he did it cause you have a little girl salter?

    Or find plastic wall to put on it so you could have big storage for salt instead spend money on one that have big storage on that.

    I wouldn't complain free salt, couldn't you always put one or two big rubber maid totes in the truck and a bucket scope the exces into the totes till you start getting lower the use it to refill yourself again.

    You use the truck for snow and ice removal, those are the things that go with it. That kills me to see any one using a New truck for salting. But thats me.

    Awwwwww man, my truck that I use for salting, has salt all over it!!!! Can you believe that!!!!! :cry:

    Seriously, I would hate to be using a newer truck to work in just for this reason. Go buy an older truck and have fun not giving a d@mn about salt in and all over the bed.

    I buy all of my vehicles at an auction, usually for under $1500 for an early 90's truck. I don't give a damn... If it breaks I fix it, and I just keep it in line for a sticker every year.

    I dont know maybe its me but I bought a new Chevy 2500 with a long box specifically so that I could have the space and power to hold a big @ss spreader..... I know it can make a mess of your truck but its a work truck right. Plus I power wash the spreader and my box after every application so it stays pretty decent when not in use.. JMO
