    Anyone have any hands on knowledge or pictures/videos other than what boss has posted about their new pro lids? i think the way they connect to the spreader looks a little flimsy but, i am looking into purchasing a new 3 yd VBX soon, the lid would be nice but not a deal breaker. any info would be great.

    Thanks guys!

    The Pro Lid is well worth the money. It was designed to combat the Fisher Polycaster and the Western Tornado and the best part about it is you can open you spreader without having to climb up on your truck. It can simply be opened by standing next to your truck. The VBX is a fine choice and remember they come with dual halogen work lights standard as well as a top screen and tarp kit. With the auger version, you will also get a vibrator kit and inverted V standard. Boss did their homework with these units and even included a feature that makes the spreader run backwards and forwards automatically if it detects a jam. If that forward and backward motion does not unclog it, you will be notified in the cab. If you would like a quote, I will have a model in stock ready to go at the end of the month.

    i dont doubt that it is a solid spreader but it looks like those two metal rods on each side of the covers could be a nightmare to deal with.

    Time will tell but with anything metal and moving in this industry, grease is key to longevity and quick replacement.
