    We just picked up a few Tc 130 truckcraft units and one Tc 140. Before we use them I had a few questions.

    How far will the spinner throw?
    Is a lot of salt wasted in the auger when finished salting?
    Do i need to install a viabrator?
    Frozen chunks a problem?
    What is the min the spinner will do?
    Frequency of jams?

    If someone could help me who has one of these it would really be helpful.

    (1) The spinner will throw 4ft-30ft.

    (2) I never left salt in the auger i use all my salt when i am out plowing.

    (3) Never had a problem with frozen chunks.

    (4) 4 ft - 30ft.

    (5) I did not have to many jams in my spreader 4-5 not to many.

    (6) you do not need a vibrator kit
    Is this a ez-dumper with a tc-130 on it
    I have a aluminum dumper with my tc-130

    I heard great results on this unit and i'm currently looking for one , i had prices from $5100-$5700 and found it a little too much, can anyone suggest pricing or availability elsewhere ?

    You probably have already saw this by now, but here is a refreshed thread just recently brought back up that has pictures of one throwing. The owner said he was a little disappointed in it, but it looks just FINE to me! :nod:
