    for $80 more, the 07 makes more sense.

    In addition, the 07 has a vibrator to help with the material.

    shoot spend, the extra $1500 and buy the sphe1500, you won't regret it with the $$ you'll save on salt

    Regarding the salt spillage, depending on whether or not you're buying this used or a left over model unit...I believe they changed the shoot to close when the spinner is off/0 position.

    My unit was just before (a few weeks actually - left over stock at my dealer) and it had a pin and block off plate. Stupid! But after seeing someone else's unit with the self closing shoot, I should have complained about them knowing this change or severely discounting my unit. I spilled quite a bit of salt that year before getting the truck moving spreading the salt.

    I wish I could, I don't run bulk. I have no place to store it.

    07 all day...the 05 does NOT come with the receiver hitch mount either...so add another 200.00 to that

    But I guess that's why it's featured as a swing-away mount to load salt?
