    i bought a western stainless steel salter but im having problems with salt droping out the bottem door. so i talked to a guy who gave me a meyer mini spreader but it is missing everything it is only the poly hopper, so im not sure what spreader i should invest money into, i was thinking maybe i should get a vibrator for the western? im not to formiluar on the whole salting process so i dont know if a vibrator unit would work, and i need to decide if i should buy all of the parts for the meyer unit, do anyone have a meyer mini , i dont know if it will work better then the western, i know the mini has an auger and the western doesnt so i think that is the problem? What should i do??? I want to buy a brand new western 1000 but i just got into salting and i dont have any FULL time salt deals just by call so i cant see tieing up $1000 and i may only use it 1 or 2 times?
