    i have an 88 S-15, will this be too heavy for my back end (ie, is it made for a larger truck)? will i need timbrens on the back with this spreader fully loaded? this will be my first year doing by the push residentials, will this be worth it? will it make me money?

    THANKS FOR YOUR FEEDBACK. - don't know what i would do without you guys!

    I don't know about the size of your driveways or the capacity of your spreader, but it looks like it will work fine on your truck. I used to use a 100# capacity spreader on a ATV for years to spread salt on large lots, just had fill up a lot. Always seemed to make money for me. Still use the little spreader for residential; work & sidewalks.
