    anybody have this unit or know of anyone that uses them, seems like a waste to tow a trailer around. It might just be the unit doesnt look very sturdy..............anyhow heres a video i cam across looking for one of the snow ex v box.

    haha, I think it runs when u drive? i couldnt tell. It had the chain drive, but i didnt see any wiring, motor, engine, although i didnt watch the whole video. It looks like a huge tow behind spreader you would buy at sears......just another video of some guys great idea.

    Goes for about 3 grand US$. Can only be towed a maximum of 20mph. It looks like a total POS. I'd stay WAY away. Reliability is a MUST in this industry.

    I saw a guy using something similar the other day. He was salting a larger shopping center. I was kinda confused though because he is huge into liquid. His wasn't yellow, it was a metal container but looked just like it.
