    Does the 2500 spreader use the same hook up as the 1000 ? As in controler i have the variable speed one. I have the 2500 and it's a POS... Looking into the 1000....

    The 2500 hookup uses a class IV hitch receiver mount. The model 1000 has a choice of swing away style, a fixed bumper style, or a class IV receiver hitch mount style like the 2500. They are very similar and I thought they were going to do away with the model 1000 but im not sure. Maybe its something you should check with the Western guys that are answering questions this week.

    I know the difference of that hook up.

    Im wanting to know about the wiring. my truck is wired for the 2500, and i want to know if the 1000 is the same electric harness. I have the variable speed controller.

    Wiring is the same for all tailgate spreaders ( models 500,1000 & 2500)
