    i know you said auger fed i have both snow ex 8000 with dual vibrators and snow ex 8500 with the auger besides the fact the 8500 holds more i have had no problems with either(except their pos control box which the 8500 is a lot more then the 8000). There are just less parts to break on the 8000 the auger motor is around $600 and only lasted me 3 yeras before i replaced it this year no biggie but the 8000s with dual vibrators have lasted me 5 years with no real problems and even spread wetish salt with no problems. just my .02

    Is there a particular reason you want poly? I have a Fisher PolyCaster, electric motors of course. Works great. But it is just about the same weight as a metal unit. I backed into a tree, and will eventually have to replace the hopper. It's over two grand. My next spreader will be stainless steel, but I will stay with electric drive.
