    I have the 9 cu ft spreader and run bagged salt. Just wondering if anyone has taken the flow gates off to get more flow?

    I finally took the flow gates off and added a vibrator. It still doesn't flow as well as the buyers/western/lesco I have seen.... I checked the belt tension and greased the bearings. Any other ideas you guys can think? Thanks

    Have you taken it to the dealer? Not a complaint I hear regularly. Sometimes wet bulk wants to hang up, but dry bagged material tends to slide right though.
