    Has anyone heard of using the powerstearing hydraulic pump to power my auger and spreader? I have a freightliner with a L10 cumins.

    you need a dedicated pump and tank . also for safety sake it is impractical because the pump cant handle enough pressure for the salter. the system needs a good sized reservoir to deal with the extra heat.
