    Just purchased a Buyers 2.0 yd bulk spreader. It has 2 adjustable feed gates in the bottom that the manual says are set for bagged product. How do you guys set them for bulk salt. This will be my first attempt at bulk salt and dont really know know how open they should be. Im guessing the auger control really determines how much salt you put down but what about the feed gates?

    Honestly, they will work where they are. I personally opened both of mine another 1.5" or so. Its all personal preference. The only reason I opened mine more was for the small clumps clogging the openings all the time. I know some people take them off, but I found out it puts to much weight on the auger and jams alot. Just play around with it.
