Salt running through spreader

    We picked up a snowex 8000 recently and am having a problem with salt running straight through the spreader as it is being loaded. Eventually it stops but only after leaving a pile under the spinner. Same thing happens after shutting the spreader off. I remember reading a thread that addressed this problem but can't find it. What is the fix for this? The baffle is the shorter one; would the longer baffle help? Tried calling trynex but was on hold for forever.

    Just got through to Trynex. Problem is the opti-flow kit has been installed with a shorter baffle. Previous owner must've been running sand through it. Trynex told me the original baffle was longer and needs to be reinstalled. Make sure you get the right one as they are model specific.
