    i am looking for another tail gate spreader for my dump truck. now the delima is i do not have a slide in reciever. i am looking for a tailgate not undertailgate any ideas on mounting it im thinking im goin to have to go custom... the body on the truck is a reading body

    i am not looking to have the spreader up really high. less lifting will be bes for loading the bags up

    i like the snow ex 575 but i was thinking maybe a larger unit like the 1075 or the 1875

    bulk right now isnt really available no space to store nor a loader

    any ideas help
