Will Magic coated salt flow through a Lesco spreader?

    I use a Lesco to spread ice melt on walks. Can I use Magic with this spreader or will it "hang up"?

    I think it will, however, the Magic has larger salt granules which do not pass well through the Lesco spreader. If you're going to use a Lesco spreader they sell a pretty decent ice melt product which we had pretty good success with. Open it wide open and let it rip.

    Don't fill it up all the way and bounce it around a bit while you're walking....it'll come out. Not nearly as well as bagged material, but it will come out.

    Like Chuck said before the size of the cotter pin or what have you has a lot to do with it also.
