    I've got a Buyers stainless steal spreader, 1.8 cu. yards. It's not very often that I put straight salt into it but the odd time that I do, I find that it continuosly runs out the end of the conveyor. The slide door is closed as much as it can be. Anyone else have this problem and any suggestions to fix it? With gravel it doesn't happen.
