    Heres a few pics of my new spreader.... I took a few to show the space between the spreader and the cab. My toro snow thrower fits in there perfectly. Also a picture of the spinner mount, air bags and truck.

    Very nice spreader I just bought one this year. How do you manage to get a snow thrower in there. I have a 21 sigle stage and want to put it in there, but I dont want to scratch the side of the pickup.

    I will take some more pics when I take out the blower next time. I suggest building a frame to lift the blower up so its easier to take in and out. Otherwise it gets suck on the side of the bed. I will grab a few pics next time I go out, which might be tonight.

    Thank You jimaug87.

    Any other pics anybody would like to see? spinner,auger, etc... let me know.

    Thats the tarp that comes with the spreader, not cheap either, its pretty thick material. That last pic is how I get the blower out, I rest it on that and tilt it towards me and lift it out. I suggest building a frame for the blower to sit on to lift it up. Like I said, when I clean it up I will take a bunch more pictures.

    While on the subject of dents, heres one I put in the brand new $600 garage door....

    You need a prorack or a back rack. You can use it for more things besides preventing dents in your truck .

    What kind of mix do you run in your spreader? I mostly use 75/25 sand/salt, it works pretty well.

    2 inches more and the poof would have been the rear window.:eek:

    Looks really nice. I see one guy around here that has a Salt Dogg spreader pretty similar to that one.

    - Thank You and after some adjustments I love it !

    - It works really well actually, at first with a 75/25 sand/salt load it wasn't coming out at all. but after taking the rear auger cover off it was throwing it out too much and I had to turn the auger down to "2". With straight salt it works just like any SS spreader I've seen.

    - Too late, lol. I always wanted one, just never wanted to shell out the clams for it.

    Same or Magic Salt or Blizzard Wizard (same thing, just a little bit cheaper)

    - Believe me I know! I much rather have a dent and scratch then replacing that window. The truck has enough dents and scratches now that I just really have stopped caring about it.

    Thank You everyone. I'll try and get some pictures of it in action.
