    Looking to purchase a tailgate spreader to spread treated sand. I realize most are for salt, my thoughts are a 60%salt/40%sand mixture, can this be accomplished? Most of my research indicates freezing concern or wet, the equipment is stored indoors;travel time is minimal. thanks in advance for your assistance.ussmileyflag

    Thanks Kevin,

    I also have retrieved some info on the western as well since the post.
    Although a bit pricey $2,000- ; I think it would be better served to purchase the 1.25 yd poly v-box. thanks for your quick reply, I will check out the fishers as well,hopefully the pricing isn't the same.
