    I have a couple of other posts going now, I'm trying not to start threads for no reason. I have read allot before posting.

    I am down to purchase time as we are approaching our winter here and it may freeze soon(ihope). I am pursuing a large contract in which case I will have to go with the snow-8500 or possibly the snow-ex 9500.

    But my question if I stayed smaller for this season and went with a large tailgate >like the Meyer Mate (9cuft) or the snow-ex 1875.
    How do they perform next to the larger units.If it's just the loading of the material then I can do the math of how painfull it might be out in the elements. But do they spread the same?

    Loading salt is a big challenge for me. I have a SS but it might not be on the same site. I would still purchase bulk but have to put more work in.

    Please keep in mind I am in the west coast of canada where we don't get much action but when we do it's good business. Any thoughts?
