    Looks a little big, but that is the best tailgate spreader you can buy.

    Easy with the caps lock.
    I wasn't planning on buying one even though I would love to have one. I just found that while wasting time.


    I have a hd 1/2 ton and I would be a bit worried about putting it on my truck.



    I wonder if it does wheelies?

    I wonder if you took the plow off and heaped the salter full if it would do wheelies as soon as you hit the gas?

    It's got airbags, and you never need to add ballast! I wonder what the load ratings are for those tires. I think that spreader is as big or probably a little bigger than mine, which is on a dually. Do you suppose he loads bulk mix or salt on the bed, or just throws bags in the bed? Or has a chase vehicle to carry his bags for him.
    That is weird.
    Lately I've been seeing an 01-02 style F150 Supercrew pickup with a five foot poly spreader in the back, and carrying a plow. The truck sits perfectly level with the sander on, so he must have some decent bags in it. Still looks like too much for a 1/2 ton. I'm sure when he gets loaded up he is way overweight. Wonder if the bags are just saving the rear springs, while maxing the pressure on the tires.
