    A well thought out unit. The fill door opens in both directions and is removable. There is one motor so the auger and spinner change speeds together. Same control as the all the other single motor units. Looks like the rest of the Saltdogg line. Won't win any beauty contests but well constructed, they didn't spend a lot of money on frills but at with a $1995.00 suggested list you can afford to address the only real performance issue, the yellow caps on the harness. Spend a couple bucks and buy a set of blank spreader side plugs to replace the yellow caps. Don't forget to buy four of the weather plugs to seal the wire holes in the caps.

    This is a tailgate unit that will do sand.:nod:

    And before anyone calls foul, yes I do sell them.payup

    I take it you can run bulk through that? Also how many lbs does that hold approx? One more ?...I have two other newer buyer's units...can I use the same wiring and controller since it's already ran?

    I'm looking hard at buying one also, looks like a good product for the price.

    Basher, if you have one in stock... could you take some more pics of it and put them up here? Maybe hook up power and make a short movie too :nod:

    Hey Steve - Crysteel gave me a price of $1391 on Monday at the State Fair. I'm not sure if it was a "fair only" special or if that's going to be their everyday price but I thought that was a heck of a deal.

    Thanks for the info Roy. Jim at ESI has a very good price also (actually cheaper then that), and shipping is pretty cheap to. Total would be $1540 to my door. If I buy at Crysteel I have to pay tax... and I hate paying tax.

    Roy, I bet Jim would give us a deal if we bought together. We'd probally save on shipping to since we're almost neighbors.

    (Hint Hint Jim...)

    Of what? #1 blended mix, it would spit it out in a heart beat, wet sand not so fast.
