    2010 Ford F-250 Super Duty Snow Dogg 75ex plow, Salt Dogg spreader its a nice truck nice ride, the plow in my opinion is too light but all in all not a bad set up. what can you tell me about this spreader, im used to using the Snowex minipro 575 and this spreader seemed like it went thru the whole hopper faster than what im used to. i thought i had the dial down low,, does thsi hopper loose salt while driving.. i know the 575 didnt loose salt.

    Nice set up, why didn't they get the 8ft plow? Is this thing for driveways or a real small lot?

    Yes it does lose salt between trips, and it spreads too much material even with the dial all the way down, imo they are not worth the money at all, we bought one, put 3 bags threw and we are sending the unit back!! Complet waste of money and time. We ordered the unit the day before thanksgiving and did not receive it until christmas. IMO i would spend 10x that on a real spreader. This spreader absolutley waste to much material, since it does not have a shut off and the dial doesnt work at all. But nice truck, should of put a bigger blade on her, she can handle it!!

    yeah it is the go light.
    I love mine and its black
    but that is a nice setup
    clean truck and like the looks of the stainless.
    i hope your doing driveways or drivethrus or youll miss not having a 8 footer with wings then youd have a little more weight.
    hows the snowdogg treating you?
    and yes the auger drive keeps salt in 575 but u will need to fill buyers at job or you will lose most your salt.

    Nice truck! It seems like both plow and spreader is small for that truck.
