    I don't see how that's going to be effective. You'd spend more time wasting salt spreading it in just a straight line the you would anything else. And it's all over your boots and pants.

    I'd rather have a little red wagon with a couple pails of salt and a plastic hand held scoop to spread salt then use that thing.

    It would make more sense if it was a trough drop spreader type as wide as the blower unit and Would hold more material as well..

    for a homeowner this is a great idea...in a commercial application it would fail miserably
