    Looking at upgrading to a Saltdogg from a pro flo 2 on a mason dump. I really like the idea of this type of spreader. Looking for some feedback from people using this type of setup. thx

    I also have a local DownEaster and Truck Craft dealer, though Truck Craft as very pricey.

    My truckCraft never gave me a problem! Just replaced the spinner motor once.
    After having it for 7 years i just sold it this year for 3/4 of the price i paid for it.
    Nothng really goes wrong with them since they are all electric and stainless steel.

    A friend of mine just bought one. He is storing it at my shop and I have looked it over. Dont get me wrong I love Buyers but not impressed at all. I have a SP2400 and I hate it but I still would choose it over the Dogg. Oh I have a picture.

    I am leaning towards the truck craft depending on price. It weighs less than 200 lbs which is more in line with what I would expect. The others are listed at roughly 400 lbs. Looks like a good unit and available from my regular equipment dealer.

    Good choice a friend of mine had one and he loved it and got a bunch of years of use out of it.
