    I'm looking for a spreader for a government facility in Maine. We currently have an F-450 with 9' Hewes body. I like the versatility of the tailgate spreader over a V-box for the ease of removal and also because of the cost. However I'm concerned that the sand/salt mix that I will be using won't slide out of the dump uniformly when wet or clumpy and effect the feed rate to the spreader. Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated along with any other problems this product may have.
