    If you read my Western spreader motor question in another thread, well, that's the spreader I used for the test. I had to plow that lot Saturday night for Sunday morning.

    I can't really say I noticed a whole lot of difference between the test areas. All scraped up fairly well, given the somewhat uneven pavement. Somebody had suggested that a more fair comparison would have been to use the Magic several times over and see if it made a difference. That didn't happen. With the spreader motor failed I ended up spreading 400# of salt by hand. (And I mean by HAND--not by a hand spreader.) :mad:

    I wasn't in a very scientific frame of mind at the time. I'll have to let the results stand as "inconclusive" until I get the chance to give it another shot.

    BTW, I typed up a post similar to this one on Sunday and when I went to post it I got "The page cannot be displayed" back from the computer. I didn't really feel like typing it all over again right then.

    I'll violate netiquette and cross post this to the original thread so it's available there too.

    Ahh Man I hate when that happens. I have tried to make a habit of copying the long posts now before I submit the post and I still sometimes forget too copy it first and then it's retype all over again.:realmad:
