    just bought a shpe2000 salter, just trying to figure out baffle settings? will be running covered bulk salt.

    also I noticed it does not chuck the salt that wide does anyone have this problem?

    We just got one a few weeks ago and used it a few days ago. The baffles were left at the factory setting and we had no problem with the salt flow. We use covered bulk salt as well. With the spinner at speed 10 a few grains tend to bounce to pretty wide. It looks to be about 30' wide. I guess it does also depend on how much salt is being fed onto the spinner.

    mine are both not fully open but about maybe 4-6in open is fine, wanted to not put too much stress on auger, we put an avg of 2.3-2.7ton a load in and works just fine(have to be very careful with that weight and your light hooks in a truck bed, we broke one), settings yes u are fine on 5-7setting for a good app on some lighter compaction but pay attention sometimes those controllers act up and spread heavy sometimes, keep the vib on when spreading are you are fine

    I took the rear one off and the front is set to wide open. I just control the amounts using the auger. I personally don't see any need for the baffles in the first place. Everything is controlled by how much you turn the auger too, the lower you go, less comes out and vice versa. No matter what I have had mine for 2 -3 seasons now and I love it!
