    Hi everyone, thanks in advance for any replies.

    We were out salting last night,
    After a while I noticed that the back drive roller wasnt moving & no salt coming out.

    The front roller was moving but the back wasnt & the belt isnt moving either.

    Once some salt was shoveled out of the box, we tried again & the rear roller began running again.

    Anyone have any ideas as to why the rear drive roller wouldnt run when theres alot of weight on it ?

    Have about half a yard of salt in it & it moves,,,, anything more & it stops.

    its an older Poly Caster 1st gen.


    Thanks again for any replies !
