    I ordered the SnowEx 575 on Thursday & had it Fed Exed for Friday & installed it. It mounts in the trailer hitch. Works great for bagged material (dry) Was buying bulk salt that was kind of wet & it didn't do so well with it. I have a few small lots further from the main route so I wanted to be able to salt those lots with my blazer while there instead of sending the larger spreader truck. Worked out great. From what I could see in the pictures of the Earthway in catalogs, it didn't seem as heavy duty as the Snow Ex IMO.
