    Hi guys....just want some feedback for the best brand or model. We ran Magic Salt for the fiest time last year and it worked great from out of the tail gate spreaders (w/vibration kit), but had trouble with the sidewalk crew spreaders. Any ideas?

    What type of tailgate spreader do you have?

    We run Lesco Stainless Steel 80lb broadcast spreaders.. About $350 a piece but worth every penny!

    Thanks

    We run Buyers on the trucks, Avalanche. Thanks for the feedback, Quality. I have looked at them before. Have you run Magic Salt through them before? That product is so heavy that any type of spreader I have bought has a hell of a type flowing through the holes. I may have to retro-fit (drill) so bigger holes, or do something different with the spinner.

    No I haven't but I've run Lesco Polyvex fert through it and it's about the same size as salt. I doubt you would have any problems. pumpkin:
