    I was in the market for a tailgate spreader which can handle bagged salt. I went to my dealer I almost exclusively use first. I have been a customer over 15 years and have spent over 75k there ez. Anyway I asked for pricing which included installation and a variable speed control.

    fisher 1000 $1825.00 plus tax

    boss TGS800 $2550 plus tax

    that was it. seemed very high and strange so I asked if Boss had other spreaders or other options and they said to go with a fisher...Best bang for the buck. I said let me think about it. I got the let me know we only have 3 left if they go you'll have to pay freight. I said ok thank you. I went across the street.

    Salt dogg TGS06 $1100 which includes tax and installtion

    Am I missing something. The one across the street doesn't sell mowers, trimmers etc so it was my first time there.
