    all depends on what you want to use, I have the air flow salter that goes in the hitch, its amazing and uses bulk salt and about 300 to 400 pounds which does about 2/3 of a parking lot for me.
    I had the western (same as fisher if you like yellow) 1000 tail gate salter but the problem was it only used bagged salt and was a pain in the ass

    snow ex

    we have a 7500 snow ex 1 1/2 ton spreader that works great for a 6 ft pick up truck it has a 5 ft auger in the center of it and its electric, fill it up and sit back in your truck and stay warm no need to be getting out refilling it with bags all night long, its great for small tight places and the amount and spread is all adjustable

    I have a SnowEx Sand Pro 1875 with the swing out mount on the Dodge. The thing works like a champ. I go to a local pit and buy bulk sand/salt mix and it throws the mixture with no problem even when it's wet.

    EDIT: Here are a couple pics.....

    Keeping it yellow

    Great pic of the snowex 1875. That is a great spreader. I run three of the 1875's as well. If you are looking for something a little smaller snowex offers a 1575 that is just a bit smaller than the 1875 but is easy on/off application for a one person operation. They also have a 575 spreader that is very easy to install and very user friendly.

    I use several of snowex's products and all I have to say is it WORKS!
