    If I lower it it will hit my reese hitch. I think it will spread better up high. Hope to find out soon.

    Looks big. It holds 2.5 yards of material. Western went with two motors on this one. One for the chain drive drag and one for the spinner.Hope it was worth the money.

    That's alot of spreader for a single wheel truck. Hopefully DD did their homework with this one and it will be a winner. Kinda bummed they went back to the bed chain. I really like the belt in mine.
