    Western Pro flo2, From what I have heard. Do a search on hitch mount spreaders when you have a while to go through them all

    I don't know if you will find one for your reciever that will hold that much. Usually a reciever type only hold around 400lbs. I have a Meyers mini jr. and I DON'T like it! It has a hard time spreading #1 rock salt and I'm going on my 2nd controller. We didn't do a lot of salting up until this year so it was ok for then but now I am looking into a 2yr old Fisher speed cast 2 that was used for a couple of seasons. Its a swing-away model I guess but that holds around 800-900lbs.
