Snowex Mini-Pro 575 Questions

    I just bought a used Snowex Mini-Pro 575 spreader and I tore it all apart and now rebuilding it. I have a few concerns that I need addressed before i do the final assembly. I will be spreading bagged rock salt through it.

    1. Do I need a vibrator on it?
    2. Do I need to get that gate kit so that salt doesnt leak out as I drive from job to job?
    3. What setting do I turn the dial on the controller to for an average spread. I can understand if speed and conditions make this impossible to answer.

    Any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    No, at least not enough to worry about.
