    so i just got a v 8000 salt ex for a steal was wondering if i build i bigger hoppersystem will the extra weight have any cons on the auger system?

    i am planning on mounting it on my fuso FH which gvw is like 18k pounds so the weight on the truck wont matter i have a landscape dump body on the truck so i figured to build some sort of walls to the dump bed to funnel material into the spreader

    any suggetions would be great!!!
    thanx in advance

    That's got a metal protector over the anger right? If so...run with it.

    Makes sure frame is soiled on the 8000
    If you have the optional baffle over auger you should be ok
    The augar is in the rear on that not the length of the hopper just above the spinner
    I built a box around mine when it was new and had no issues total was 2.5 yards
    I Aldo had dual vibrators
