    I have a Lesco commercial Plus spreader (sand load 500) same as a snow ex i've been told. Anyways, I finally made a hitch mount frame for it and wired up the controller. when it turns on, it does a momentary self test of the auger and spinner, but the auger doesn't turn and the spinner quits, the displays say OL on them, if you cycle the power, same thing... any thoughs? i was thinking a weak ground on the spreader. any thoughts?

    Mine is wired directly to my battery but My problem sounds similar I think. "I just bought a Lesco commercialplus spreader (I posted to Snowex because everyone says they are the same) So I wired it up and I put 50lbs of salt in it and then I went to test it. So it will spread for a second then stop then spread then Stop altogether unless I turn on and off then it does the same Thing. Control flashes when the motor finally stops altogether. So i was looking for some help. Does anyone know where I can get parts for the spreader"
    Thanks Jon
