    A few ppl have been asking to see my 1T dump set up with the new V w/wings and the shpe 2000 so here are a few with my 02 CC. More to come.............

    Note: Notice the ware on the New plow on the Super Duty, this blade has only seen 7hrs in its life so far and the snow flap is already torn and the mold board looks like it's 5yrs old! The snow flap is getting warranted this week though.......

    So far I've gone through about 18T of sand/salt and only 4T of bulk salt. Seems to be holding its own so far.

    Round the corners of the steel that goes over top of the flap. That will keep the steel from cutting away at the flap. I learned after my last one did that. Boss did warrenty my flap also, but told me to round the corners of the steel.

    I do it because there are too many lurkers on the net and you just never know who's on the other side of your screen.

    Yeah...about 18T sand/salt 80/20 and 90/10 ratio and about 4T bulk salt. So far just one minor con, it spreads a little light on the passenger side. Positives so far; feeds material great, super simple to use, easy installation, seems to be quality built, multiple spreader setting options, poly and stainless so no rusting, and the electric auger and spinner motor have enough power, and some, to get the job done.
    X2, you can never be to cautious.......I don't mind sharing pics of my equipment to the cyber world, but I try to block out anything that might ID me to any unwanted strangers.

    Hey everything looks great, I really like the Ford. I have the same spreader in a pickup but I was thinking of putting it in my F-550, I was told by the dealer I would need to buy a longer spinner assembly so it would spread even. Are you having any trouble with the short spinner on your dump?

    The length of the chute doesn't effect spread pattern, it just gets the spinner closer to the ground. I was worried about the standard length chute being to high up but I just have to be careful when going next to parked cars. Might deice their hoods.:D I;m gonna find a way to mod it myself to extend the chute down a few inches. The extended chute version was only a couple hundred more but when I bought mine they didn't have any in stock so I settled for the standard chute.

    You won't have any problems with it in your 550.
