    I have a Mini Jr. spreader that I think is using way to much salt and not throwing it far enough. I am using #1 rock salt like the manual says. everything is hooked up right. It pretty much dumps the salt right down the middle behind the truck.. Shouldn't it sling it a bit farther then the sides of the truck?

    In order to get it to sling the salt I have to run it high speed which chews threw 10-12 bags of salt in no time.
