    Hey All,

    I have one of the Swisher ATV Spreaders, and would really like to use it with sand. The problem is, it jams up... I think they call it "bridging", and it's _really_ frustrating.

    I gather I can do one of three things...

    a) add some sort of auger system
    b) add some sort of vibrator system
    c) throw it away, and get something better!?

    I have a 200 yard steep gravel driveway to deal with, and it needs a little something more when it ices up.

    Salt/chemical is not an option as there is an orchard bordering the driveway.

    What should I do?
