    Would like to know what the thoughts are of these setups to pre-wet salt and if it saves the 30% give or take that they claim. We are strongly considering setting up 1 to 3 of our trucks. Looking at the 8500, 9300, or 9300X. Appreciate any insight you can share.

    We have used a SnowEx 9500 (check my posting in used equipment) with the pre wet system and Salt Traxx monitoring system. Pre wetting the salt certainly is an aid in getting the salt to work more efficiently. Monitoring the amount of product put down is an awesome capability which helps in verifying amount of product spread. I am confident we save salt when pre wetting but am unsure of how much. I am absolutely sure that salt will work at lower temps when pre wet. Hope this helps. I am selling the SnowEx system to move to a larger spreader/pre wet system. Will consider selling the SnowEx separately from the truck.
