    Hey guys,

    So I know i might get thrashed for asking such newby questions.. but my dad is looking at a new sander for the company and I found a bunch online. I have narrowed it down to a couple, one of which I am going to look at on tuesday of this week.

    http://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/bfs/1974526989.html

    So my question(s) is/are, what are some things I should be looking for? Rust in certain areas (I know its stainless.. but that aside)? Controls? are there certain belts/chains that tend to go bad? I have plowed for several years but this is the first time we have ever gotten involved in the sanding side of things.

    oh, and the sander would be put to work in our 04 F-550 (I know you guys love pictures..)

    Get a tornado generation 2 or a polycaster in your case to match your plow

    Put a electric undertailgate spreader on it. It will save a bunch of weight, make the truck more versitile and carry more material. Truck craft, downeaster and Buyers all make electric udertailgates.
