    Does bulk salt work ok in tailgate spreaders? I have heard both yes and no. Are the peices larger or is there another problem? Just curious. I have the chance to get the bulk and just want to make sure it will work.

    We have run a western pro flow one and two and we have fisher 1000 which is the same as a western 1000 all we do is put a vibrator on them and make a screen cover to stop any big chunks from jaming the spinner shaft and they work good. we have run this type of set up for 6+ yrs now.
