    have a Lesco commercial Plus spreader (sand load 500) same as a snow ex i've been told. Anyways, I finally made a hitch mount frame for it and wired up the controller. when it turns on, it does a momentary self test of the auger and spinner, but the auger doesn't turn and the spinner quits, the displays say OL on them, if you cycle the power, same thing... any thoughs? i was thinking a weak ground on the spreader. any thoughts?

    OL is overload. do you have material in the hopper yet? if not then i would say a bad motor.

    no, it was empty, i'm wondering if the auger isn't just froze from sitting. the other motor is new

    we ya figure it out? i would say either the motor is locked up or the bearing on the other end is froze up.
