    Okay guys I need a salt spreader for my truck. Tailgate mount, dont care if it is swing away mount or hitch mount. Not too concerned with kind Snow Ex, Meyer, Boss, etc. Would like it to be complete with at least a contoller of some sort. Looking to spend less than a grand too preferably between 500-800, have cash in hand. Would like it to be in working order as well. I will also travel within reason, but no more than 200 miles. If anyone has something like this, please PM me, or email Tom@SydenstrickerLawns.com Thanks guys!!

    Does that Buyers have an auger in the throat? I assume it is direct drive but where is the motor located on that?
