    Hi Folks-

    Chris from CT here. New to the forum and new to plowing in general. Got a GMC Sierra 1500 with a 1.5 yard Fisher Poly-Caster spreader. The spreader is new and recently installed by the dealer. Used the spreader in early December but then took it off the truck for a bit. Went to put it back on today and found it a bit challenging to sort out the tie down configuration. :dizzy: Tried to find some info online about how best to go about it but came up with nothing. Any opinions, advice or links to online info about this subject?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    -Chris

    Four ratchet straps, one at each corner. Hook them to the anchor points in the bed and tighten down. That's how we do ours in my brother's truck. Never had a problem with it moving. We also stick a block of wood between the polycaster and the front of the bed. Hope that helps
