    Can anyone tell me if this is a decent spreader for the money about 1100.00
    Doing small commercial & residential. SnowEx Pro 575 I believe the capacity is 400lbs. Thank You.

    Snow ex makes a good spreader, didnt find any more problems with them than westerns/fishers spreaders. Just dont get the little one that uses a cable to open the gate on the spreader.

    The SnowEx 575 is an excellent little spreader, and will give you years of service with minimal maintance.

    I have had mine for 3 seasons and have no problems. Only thing I did was to weld on beefier angle iron on the frame closest to the bumber.

    I have not had any luck posting pictures. I welded angle iron to the square tubes closest to the back of the unit to help with it flexing away from the truck. I used to run straps to the corners of my bumpers to keep it from shacking but I find that I can wiggle the truck side to side to shake the salt to the bottom.

    I might do that but first I want to see how bad it shakes when full of salt... I did notice it wobbled back and forth on bumps...so I might just strap it.... thanks for the tip.

    I think thats a good deal for that spreader. I just bought a 575 today and got a deal on it. I paid $1050+tax.

    Didn't see any replies on my question. But I found one at Fallsway Equipment, Akron 330 633 6000. They had with the hitch mount for $1139.
