    I have a 2500 Western I run on my Sons plow truck It helps me out He likes it He can see backing up unlike my V box I haul I try to a void backing up

    I bought mine used but its like new Last person didn't run a pallet of Icemelt threw it
    I added a Augur to it works 10 times better

    If you get one make sure it has a augur Free Flowing spreaders sucks you waste a lot
    I price one today 2 models of the 2500 one is 1600 and other 1750 the difference is one variable speed and other isnt Then + 68 for the 4 flight augur it bolts on the shaft
    Then I found out spreading Icemelt or fine salt with it works better running it backwards Spreads more evenly
