    Im looking at a 2006 meyers tailgate spreader model 3800 w/ vibrator, this guy says he tried spreading wet sand with it once and it wouldnt work or only worked for a minute then jammed, so he just put it away because he cant get ahold of dry sand, i have dry sand, also mixed with #1rock salt, will this unit work or not??? also he is asking 800.00 and says he paid 1800.00 for it in 2005, thanks

    if u leave the vibrator on when u shut the auger and spinner off they just hard pack. i would bet it would spread sand. and if its dry sand u should be able to spread it with anything
