    I am looking for a spreader for salt and sand. I was thinking of mixing the sald and sand together. What is a good tailgate spreader to use for this?
    What kind of salt do you use and where do I get it?
    Who makes the best spreader?

    ghostrunner,

    You will need a two stage unit like a Western Pro Flo 2. Fisher also makes a two stage unit. Look on their web sites. I run the Western. Single stage units won't handle the mix.

    tailgate spreader

    FISHER SPEEDCASTER 2 IS AN EXCELLENT CHOICE OF A SAND/SALT TAILGATE SPREADER. THESE UNITS ARE GREAT UNITS.
