    Hi sorry for all the questions newbie here lol...I was wondering what set up would be beneficial for plowing small parking lots and lots of sidewalks, an atv with a rack mounted salter or a tow behind unit, what are the pros and cons of both these models... thanx in advance for your responses.

    We have a rack mounted Salter and it's small but it's much easier backing up than a tow behind.

    The rack mount is much easier. My concern is that slinging salt from a rack mount spreader will cover the undercarriage in salt and eventually rust it out.

    I tried a pull behind and it is a pain in the A$$ backing up and turning around. Wish I would have bought a rack mount unit. Works great on the lawn though, so would a rack mount. Capacity might not be as much though.
