    I run a 1-ton dump with a central hydraulic tailgate replacement spreader. Regardless of the disadvantages of this setup, it works decent for my operation. The one problem is the inconsistancy in spreading rates, which I think I can improve by the addition of a vibrator.

    Angelo's sells a 200# 12v model for $150. Sounds reasonable to me, thoughts? Maybe two?

    Thanks guys, I'll check both of those out.

    However, I was looking for more advise on weather you think they would work. Possibly from someone who has used a vibrator on a 1-ton.

    Since adding a vibrator.....There have been many benefits.

    Most of all, I am able to go to sleep at night.

    That buzzing noise is actually relaxing and helps me fall asleep.

    Except for the occasional scream.

    But...I support your purchase.

    I have a 200# on my one ton and it works great. I used a toggle switch but a push button would work cause it only takes a few second to rattle the salt down.
