    does anyone have a scale attached to their salters to tell how much they are putting down at each site ? can this be done?
    any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thats not a bad idea, I know they make them for larger trucks, it weighs the load on the whole truck . Would be handy to have. Not sure of the cost, I think not overly expensive. I'm not sure if you could use this on a pickup or a 1 ton truck. If feasable would really be a good tool for keeping a accurate use of salt per job.

    Its out there right now if you have an hydro spreader. Compu spread, can controll your material feed electronically. It will also measure the amount used.
