    I guess that's a Western sticker on there. Probably a 500 model. My understanding is they are OK for very dry, coarse salt. No sand.

    I would agree on the western 500 as I have a western 1000. I spread a salt/sand mix with mine and it works great....as long as the material is DRY

    that's a Western ProFlo. I wanna say it holds the same capacity as the 1000, maybe more. I know someone that runs bulk through one, as long as it's dry. You need special mounts for the truck to mount it (either the custom hitch or bed rails I believe).
