    it might work for some loads, but if it jams up you will have one hell of a time getting it free flowing. I have a Boss 1100 with a vibrator and have run bulk salt through it for 5 seasons now. I have had no issues with the bulk jamming up. I just turn the vibrator on until it starts flowing again and then shut it off. do not leave it on constantly otherwise it will jam on you!

    Is it "must"? No. We ran bulk, but it would occasionally jam up, which was a pita and got old real quick. Spend the extra $ and get a vibrator. It's totally worth it in the long run.
