    Ok, I am looking at a Curtis 1.7 yard for my 3/4 ton ford and a 2.0 or 2.5 yard for my fathers 1 ton f350 dump(is the 2.5 too big?),both stainless. These sanders are said to have hydraulic drives along with a 5hp motor. How are these sanders compared to a fisher all gas with say a 10 or 11 hp engine? Do these sanders need a pto or does the 5HP motor run all the hydraulics,etc.? any input on these curtis sanders would be appreciated.

    thanks,
    craig

    I will be getting a spreader in october/november, as much as i don't really want one, i have to get it because i plow 3 small parking lots and two of them want to be de-iced/sanded. I am strongly considering curtis i have heard only good things about all of their products and my plow has well exceeded my expectations. I would get the smallest one they have.
