    Hey there guys. Well of course I know that everyone will help out so here we go.

    We have a 2 yard steel electric spreader. Unknown make with conveyor and standard spinner. We currently have it set on a toggle switch On/Off setup but I am doing some research to install a controller.

    I have heard guys using Karrier controllers?? I could always make my own but I like the idea of a warranty as well.

    Ok what do we think?
