    Here are a couple of pics of the new Sno-Ex Sandpro 1875 tailgate spreader that I purchased through Equipment Specialist. Thanks Noble!

    I put the same one on my utility body. I also added a light. Those are not holes in the bumper they are adjustable rubber stops that keep it tight to the truck

    So...what protects the tailgate? How much?? I may have to abandon my quest for a full size spreader this year, this would be ideal.

    Nope, no holes in the bumper. As a previous poster said, they are bumper stops. I bought the hitch mount that slides right into the 2" receiver. No drilling anything on the truck. It was about $2500 through Equipment Specialists, a Plowsite sponsor and regular contributor.


    The hitch mount keeps it out away from the truck/tailgate. The ratchet straps have to be used to keep it from leaning back too far. No chance for it hitting the tailgate.

    I like it really well. It appears as though it's a pretty slick rig. Just got to figure out an easy way to take it on/off the truck now.

    I just got it on today but it's really not looking all that easy to remove by yourself. I am going to try and rig up something to remove it by myself. We'll see. Will post if I figure out something.

    I think you would be pleased. They get very good reviews here. Looked them over at Fryeburg this year, seems like very nice stuff.

    Oh I got a feeling that "pretty green tractor" will play a role in removing the sander. I love my John Deere!!

    If you have two people its not hard at all to remove.. but one person you are gonna have a sore back! I use mainly bulk salt but i have used a salt/sand mix and it never gave me a problem.

    Messer has one like yours, used for $2500...poly, Gen. 1 with the belt. They had to repair something on it though, the previous owner backed into something. "Minor" was the word the guy used. I have yet to go check it out.

    I keep going back an forth on this ice management thing. I just hate to spend $$ knowing I will have to upgrade in less then a year. I might just sub my stuff out again this season and save my pennies for the right equipment.
