    You need to salt after you plow not while you are plowing. Not sure what type of controller you have but on my snowex it has a dial to set the speed. If it is the same you will need to play with it and set your on spot. The faster the spinner goes the more I spread. It also will depend on your lot sizes as well. imo.
