    STOP spending the big $ for bagged salt for your tailgate spreaders and turn your dumper into a spreader using cheap bulk salt !!!!

    I have a used salt spreader that replaces the factory tailgate on EZ Dumper & Downeaster dump inserts. I may also work on others, but I am not sure. It was just serviced by Santoro Bros. an EZ Dumper dealer and is in working condition. I do not have a controller for it as we had it hooked up using seperate toggle switches for both the auger and the spinner. I bench tested the unit and it is in working order. The top pic below is from their website.

    Tailgate salt spreader - Convert your insert to a salt and sandspreader with the Downeaster tailgate spreader. Comes with a painted steel shell, a dual flight auger to pull materials from both sides, a self-leveling spinner, and pre-mixing tines to loosen material. Spread pattern adjusts from 8' to 20'. Removable spinner assembly allows handy sandbag or wheelbarrow filling. Dump feature allows conventional top-pivot tailgate operation. Separate electric motors drive auger and spinner.

    These are well over $2500 new. asking $900 for it.

    I am selling it because I don't really use it. The truck won't hold enough salt for my needs and I have a Ford 9000 that I use. I can ship it if you arrange it. Check rates with some of the LTL carriers such as FedEx Freight, CCX, ect. The weight is 180 lbs at class 55 from 48089. I will get some pics in the next few days.

    Is it stainless like the picture, or is it plain steel?

    Thanks Mike
