    7550 worked for us

    We used a 7550 in a F150 short bed and it worked fine. Call if you have any questions at 800-845-0499.

    1875 Snowex

    Check out the SnowEx 1875 spreader. We run several of them and they are awesome with the swing away gate option.

    short box could mea 5 1/2 ft box or 6 1/2, i think even the sp6000 is a 6 footer. But like you said no issues perfect thanks for ur time.

    We usually recommend something a little larger than the 5.5-foot bed. Perhaps you'd like to talk the purchase through with a sales rep at 1-800-SALTERS before pulling the trigger. Thanks for considering SnowEx products!

    7550 in short bed

    Hope this helps. It rides fine if you add the overload springs.

    7550 Pics

    I am trying to upload a pic and it will not upload for some reason. Send me an email at wayne@wayneslawnservice.com and I will send it to you that way.

    I have a good picture showing the 7550 in the bed and it looks great.

    Sorry about the upload issue.
