    I was interested in those too but the Boss folks told me that they are really just made for Salt material, not Sand. I need to sand my lot occasionally to stop customers from slipping and sliding :eek: :eek:

    i picked up a brochure on it and i didnt see anything about sand it just said salt, de-icer ect. i like how it hookes up to the truck though you do have to lift it to put it into the reciever its all electric.

    The only problem w/ tailgate spreader is the small size. We only use deicer in them as less is more effective. We make more money by subbing out salting to a another larger contractor.
