    Which spreader (they make quite a few)?

    I only have experience with a 575 tailgate spreader, and I know the gate kit was an option when I bought it. With rock salt, the auger bridges it just fine, but calcium pellets flow right out of it. The gate kit would be necessary for calcium or fine bagged material, but regular rock salt bridges just fine.
