    Good evening
    I have a unique situation. My truck with the plow fits in my garage with about 8" to spare. At this point I need to own a salt spreader. My problem is I need something that fits in the bed not off the back. It is ok if I have to pull it to the end when needed. I would also love to get something that has a shutoff on the bottom that operates from the cab.

    What do you guys use and how well does it work?

    thank you

    All Salt Spreaders will have something that sticks off the back

    I would recommend a salt dogg 1500. I have a 2000 model which sticks out further than the 1500, but the nice thing is you can remove the chute to get in your garage. This is my truck with the 2000. It is the same as a 1500 model but the 1500 will not extend past the rear bumper. The whole spinner assembly comes off with to pins and one electrical connection. Hope this helps.:waving:

    If you can do with a hitch mounted spreader, my Snowex 575 goes on and off in less than a minute....

    Sno way makes a nice eletric V box with a removable drop. they are relativly light so you can slid it in your bed tight when you rnt salting and pull it back 8 " and put the drop spreader back on when snows on the way. your in upstate NY . if you are framiliar with troy NY howe brothers inc sells the salter at a reasonable price
