    Hey Guys,
    This is my first time trying to post a pic so be patient, this is my '02 F-250 SD with the 5.4 triton just put the spreader on in the fall. I like it so far. Feel free to post any questions or comments and good luck this season

    how do you like the results of mag? I have not been having good luck with it. seems like there isint any slow release in it. it gets hot quick then freezes over instantly. WHats your opinion?

    Have you used your spreader much?? I am trying to get opinions from as many people as I can about spreaders. The salt I have is is bagged salt however, its pretty much bulk salt and I want to find a spreader that will work! Does it have a vibrator? What kind of material have you used in it? Thanks for the help!


    edit. while I was typing you said you havent spread yet

    i got it new this fall and going to run bagged mag or calcium what i learned so far keep everything as dry as possible and don't leave your material in the hopper or it will find a way to clump up, i don't have a vibrator on it
