    Just picked up a new boss spreader and I seem to get more salt falling when it's not in use than the other is this normal?:confused:

    Works that way on almost all of the "open auger" type. Dont load the hopper until your ready to spread it.

    I have a boss spreader as well. I never put salt in it till I am ready to use it. I have found that I lose as much as I spread otherwise.

    My Boss your able to close off until your ready to salt. 2 wing nuts to tighten or loosen then slide open or shut.
