    Anyone know what the spinner rpm range should be? I'm kind of building from scratch with a Hyd system and need to size the motor for the max rpm I would need. I can control the speed down with a flow control valve to give me a working range.

    I plan on using a 18-24" spinner and spreading treated and pre wet salt, so heavy stuff.

    Thanks LON, that helps seeing the specs for it.

    Any suggestions on a good big spinner?

    what do you mean "a good big spinner"? Metal or poly? 18" or 24"? Under mount motor or top mount? Under-tailgate spreader or v-box?

    Poly, motor on the bottom. Vbox. Something in the 18-20" size. I am building from scratch here.
