    I bet I win!! LOL. Emptied yesterday. I figured I'd make some of you by the book'ers cringe. Carry on.......................

    Rain had washed away a bit more since this first pic, but...........


    Powerwashed out and shoveled in the dumpster hahaha. Think those sidewalk bags are still good for this year? :mechanic:

    I can see the for sale ad now "stainless salter only used one year needs new chain, bearings, and the motor might need to be replaced." Come on man i mean maintenance is tough but its august you might as well have left it in three more months and tried to spread it haha.

    LMFAO nah it turned right on. All of the drive chains are stainless anyway, and bearings stay freshly greased. Conveyor isn't but it's fine.

    The others were emptied after the last snowfall. This truck had an issue and was parked. Got overlooked till now. Pulling the spreader and bed off anyway. Plans were to go through it regardless, so it really didn't matter.
