    I had a stainless one for awhile. It was built really well. Never gave me any problems. I had to sell it to seal the deal on the worthless plow truck I was trying to get rid of.

    i like mine, its been abused badly by the previous owner. i got it free, put a new gearbox on it and cleaned the carb. works great for me, im working on about 14 tons of sand spread with it so far.

    i wonder why more people dont use them, seems like the buyers and westerns are all full of problems.

    Started out with two model p steel spreaders over 10 years ago. Sold them after many years and bought 2 stainless steel. Been very dependable. check your connections where the harness plugs in. if you ever rewire, make sure you use alot of dielectric grease.

    we have the highway and seems very dependable except for the starter at the start of the season, it is almost always froze up
