Liquid and Salt mixed in a Tailgate Spreader

Discussion in 'Ice Management' started by firstclasslawn, Dec 24, 2005.

  1. I have a snow-ex 575 and I was wondering if i would be able to fill my spreader and then dump liquid mag or corn byproduct or anything like that onto my salt and still be able to spread it....(Immediatly after mixing) or will it jam up my spreader! (i need to do this for cold mornigns)

    My guess is you'll jam it.. maybe not immediately, but evenutally. I have the same spreader.. you might want to try calcium pellets mixed with salt. Did that last weekend with success.

    snow ex

    The snow ex is a great spreader unless its like - 50 you should be fine if you fill up that 575 you would run out in about 4 min at 80% so your liquid wont frez that quick

    I run a Karrier vibrator on my Buyers SUV Pro spreader. Last winter I dumped liquid calcium on my salt when it was very cold. It went through the spreader great as long as you run the vibrator.
