    I run a 2012 crew cab F350 diesel with a Fisher V Plow.
    In the market for a tailgate spreader and would like some feedback. I have some long driveways (800 feet) and a few smaller (15-30 car) lots I take care of. I'm done with broadcast spreading and shovels!!! Thank you for your input! Thumbs Up

    Fisher or the western 2500 models works well I bought used one last year and my son loves it on his truck I had to put in the augur new ones come with it now
    I found out spreads evenly running it backwards and never plug up once last winter
    Running it forward seems dump to fast but during a Ice storm I'll switch it back to forward

    I have thought about buying another one to run on another truck Save on me running around with V box so much
