    i have an older v-box and thought about replacing it with a poly
    but what i noticed is with a poly you loose all the space in the bed
    i usually mount my box over to the drivers side and put 20 bags of cal. in the
    open space with a hand spreader and small blower. ss v-box will be in my future

    I am running a 1990 smith stainless v-box. Minor repairs over the years, but people crap when I tell them its 18 years old. Cant tell by looking at it. this thing will last a long time.

    Yes, it is the electric. I have been through a couple electric motors, but it is nice not to have to worry about a gas engine on very cold mornings.

    Can you spread straight sand out of the electric vboxes?
