    Does anyone have any experience with how good the karrier z80 vibrators are? Will it let me spread 50/50 sand salt mix. Without a vibrator I have no problems with bulk salt but a couple picky customers want sand it's not happening well at all with out poking the sand down. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks

    I've done it, you have to be careful.
    I always got dry sand from the ready - mix plant

    I run a 70/30 sand/salt mix with no problems through a Meyer 350s TGS, as noted the sand needs to be dry. Also the sand I run is called Squeegee it's on the coarse side which helps it feed plus is gives great traction.
