    Hey guys its about time to start gearing up for this years season and i need a new spreader. this time around i want to go with a stainless model sick of having to repaint the spreader each year. I currently have a Monroe v box spreader its hydraulically driven and i want to get away from that so if the truck the spreader is on goes down i can swap it into another truck to get my jobs done. However i dont know to much about v box spreaders so i need advice. I like to stick around the 2 yard size and i was looking at a buyer salt dogg anyone got one? Let me know what you guys think

    have you checked to make sure you can even get salt to spread? this might not be a good yr to invest in a new spreader

    I have two henderson ss 1.8 yard units one is 16 years old the other is 12 years old. I have had NO problems with there unit. they still have many years to go on them.
    I would strongly recomend them. priced a little high than other units but you get what you pay for.

    i like my curtis v box, has very simple drive, no chains or belts, i made a remote control for the wiring so i can move to other trucks easier very reasonable $ wise, run this for 3 years so far with no trouble
