    how well does the boss spreader work with wet or damp sand? Its says on there web page that it only spreads dry material I looking for a spreader that can thorw wet and dry sand or damp materials would I be better off going with westerns pro flow 2 spreader instead? I have a bos 8' blade. I would like to keep all of my equipment the same if possable. I do not want to be out plowing and have to deal with having to uncloge the spreader because the material keeps packing?

    I wouldn't recommend the BOSS spreader for material that you know will be wet. The motor and auger just aren't powerful enough to spreader heavy wet clumped material.
    I can't speak for the other units you mentioned, because I'm not familiar with them.
