    I've been in business since 2005, but am currently working on rebuilding the company after a messy, messy divorce ($65,000) that wrapped up this past summer. I need to pick-up a new V-Box spreader for my F-250 with an 8-foot bed, and am looking for input on brands and experiences. I'm leaning toward a poly box electric - either SaltDogg or SnowEx. Due to the high cost of the divorce, I'd like to keep my investment down insomuch as practical, but also don't want to pick-up something that's going to require more time in maintenance and frustration than it's worth. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
