    Hey everyone I am going to be buying a new salt spreader and I trying to see what everyones take are on these two.
    1. Saltdogg Poly Electric 2.0 cuyd for $3,400.00 locally or
    2. BLizzard Poly Electric 1.8 cuyd for $6,495.00 locally

    I am not sure which one would be better, but three thousand more for the blizzard seems like a lot. Are they really worth it? We are located in Hanover, PA 17331 if anyone knows of a good source.

    Thanks for your help!

    A local contractor buddy of mine has two Western Tornado Spreaders (same as the Blizzard), He loves them. One of his subs recently bought the Buyers SaltDogg 2000, and is now much more impressed with the overall operation of the SD spreaders. He seemed to really like the auger drive that didn't dump salt into the bed underneath the drag chain like his Western does. He made the comment that he wished he'd seen them before buying the Westerns at 1.5-2X the cost.

    That was the major selling point for me, and am still considering upgrading to the SHPE1500 at some point.

    Thank you for the quick information. I just ordered the Blizzard 8611pp and the Salt Dogg 2 yard spreader. Now it needs to snow here!
