    I would like to know also as I am getting the ProFlo2 for this year, any experienced info would be great!

    If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for the speedcaster2?

    There is a guy in Northern VA selling the ProFlo2 (same as SC2) for 2400.00 installed (under bumper, new hitch type mount), which from what I have found is a pretty darn good price!

    I have had a speedcaster 2 for a while, and you are right..Directions are useless. I paid $1950, for mine mid season and installed it in about 3 hours with two other guys. Two worked on the hitch, and the third ran wiring.It works well, but you need to try different speeds and also adjust the control arm at the unit to adjust product flow.Too much and the spinner throws it about 8 feet across! Far less than Fisher advertised. I only have the on/off, and blast but the variable speed is nice.i just hit the blast intermitantly as I drive slow..seems to work.just be prepared to shovel.I go through a hopper in no time.I try not to fill it to the top, so I dont overload the drag belt...good luck
