    Hey guys, I've done a search but couldn't find much of anything. I know I've seen pics on here of salters on the back of skid steers. Not the tow behind models but the bolt on ones which look like tailgate spreaders. Can anyone guide me in the right direction? Thanks.

    Thanks, but I have to have the ability to spread salt at the same time so it has to be rear mounted. I was at my Bobcat dealer yesterday and what they carry is a spreader made by Bauman. It's hydraulic driven and can carry about 6 cubic feet. Only one I found so far.

    I've seen the SnowEx (I think) that goes in a receiver tube on the Posi-Tracks. Is that what you were thinking of? Could weld a receiver on the frame, mount it and either get a hydraulic or electric. Problem on a Bobcat is you would have to remove to get at the engine compartment and fueling.

    wouldn't they be to slow to spread?

    Not if you are plowing\sweeping\blowing and then spreading. You would be cutting your labor just about in half. I love to reduce my labor costs.

    I suppose I should have been clearer. The tenders are for the city sidewalks so we're only spreading salt/sand on the sidewalk not a parking lot etc.
