    We usuallly put 5 yds in it. it could probably hold 1 - 1.5 yds more but we would be over weight and DOT cops are hitting hard right now. If you get stopped and are over weight its 25 cents per pound that your over

    I see a lot of FLINK spreaders . There made in the town I live in , along with plows. I always thought it was funny because we dont normally get a lot of snow.

    Thanks starc we have 3 bins built with the maffia blocks. The covered one is for Magic salt. It beats the heck out of shoveling off a wet tarp( snow ice and water) in the winter time at 3 am. I did that toooooo many times. Took me too long to do it, but now I am so thankful it is done.

    Heres our rig! Its been the only thing getting alot of use latly. Just dosent seem to want to snow, so it just comes as freezing rain. It was new this fall, and I think I have been out sanding 4 times now, and I love it! It beats the 86 ford 1 ton we used to use. You can heap the sander as full as you can get it, and it handles it just fine.wesport
