    I have 2 buyers spreaders 1 is 7 years old it is great. The other I just purchased. What I am having trouble with is lots that would normally take 5-6 bags of salt are now taking 8-9 bags it seems that it is dumping salt like no tommorrow. Has anybody else had this problem? Did they change the auger design? Help

    Thanks Jeff

    What setting do you have your controller on? If I run mine on a high setting it went through salt very quick. Also the size of material you are using can effect how much you use.

    I spoke to Buyers they are replacing the auger. I run solar salt in mine it is $2.00 a bag cheaper than rock salt.
