    Does anyone have one? Good ? Bad? etc?

    I do my drive and 2 neighboring drives with my Ranger. The one drive is so steep, pushing a salt spreader is out of the question. I have been sitting on the blade of the truck holding the walk behind speaker while the GF drives slowly in 4 low. I know I am bound to fall off sooner or later and get run over

    I like the 300W for the simplicity of it getting power from the trailer plug and the wireless remote to control it. Also it is not too large of a unit to take on and off the truck by myself. And it also takes bagged rocksalt(unlike most of the others that only take Expensive calcium pellets)

    we had one at the body shop last year Brad, and had no issues with it other than being small.
    ended up trading it in on a used slide in unit

    Ok, good.
    Since you had experience with one.

    It has an auger in the throat of the hopper to "break up" the salt and also keep it from free flowing out?

    I see the SnowEx one has what appears to be a manual guillotine style flow stop

    just make sure you keep it clean!!
    if you let it sit with salt in it corrosion starts and things go sour real fast.
    we emptied it and washed it out after each use.

    Emptying after each use is easy. Washing it is another story
