    Anybody using the new 2 ton Buyers salt dogg poly electric unit. It looks like a very well built unit. Looking for some pros and cons about it.

    I know several companies here in Michigan using them and they love them, large capacity, no rustig issues. We dont use them simply because we are set up for all under tailgate hydraulic systems. They are starting to be preferred over the traditional V-Boxes.

    You can view the specs on them at: http://ealandscapesupply.com/saltdoggelectricpolyspreaders.htm

    We just used the spreader for the first time the other day, f350 single SRW with no airbags ( yet ) or Timbrens.
    They filled up to heaping at the yard and it looked and felt a little heavy, so backed up to the salt pile and let a good 500 or 600 lb. go.
    Weighed out at 3500 lb. in the hopper, it was real wet salt and the baffles were left the way they were set at from the factory.
    The salt being wet, it was needed to run the vibrator for a few seconds every time we would restart salting - no problems - great coverage and only about 2 or 3 cups left in the spreader when finished.
