    picked one of these at the home depot on sale for 1/2 price of 289.00. I have it hooked up but have not used it yet. are these units any good?? why does it not come with a lid??. It says it only spreads pellets not rock salt, has anyone tried rock salt??. I will be using it in the am and will repor back with results.

    It most likely will not spread rock salt. It's a gravity fed unit, meaning the material flows from gravity. Your spreader will need a vibrator or an auger to spread rock salt. Rock salt takes on moisture and that makes the salt clump, stick, and get compacted.

    the 210 model has auger and works pretty good if you use bagged salt I havent heard any one that likes the gravity feed models in any brand.
