    If anyone is wondering, the 1875 will throw mix. I slung a 4 to 1 mix today like it was nothing. Only problem I had is probably operator error. I couldn't seem to get the thing adjusted to where I was throwing enough mix to even show up on the ground. I slowed the spinner way down and sped up the auger, but I still had to crawl at a walking pace and go over it twice to show up like I thought it should. Maybe some of it was because of the 3/4 inch of snow that it was sinking into, it showed up better in my tire tracks. I got out and watched it and it rolls down the chute nice, don't see a problem there. Not jammed up or anything. I did go through two hoppers of mix so it isn't like I'm not feeding any. Just got to get used to it I guess. Would have been fine if it were salt, but wasn't enough really to give much traction, at least not until I went over it again really slow.

    Im having problems setting my Boss tailgate and I only have the speed control. It seems like you're emptying the thing in minutes or not putting enough down. You're not the only one in that boat.
