    I have a Snow Ex 575 and love it.. Still have 1 Meyers/Buyers type with the exposed motor. Hate it lots of motor problems. I think a good dealer is just as important though...Chuck

    Western Pro Flo. Holds 950 pounds. Works great. Depending on the size of your lots, you shouldnt have to fill it up that often. Plus way it is designed, I use bulk salt and hardly ever have a material flow problem. Bulk salt is 60% cheaper than bags. Profit margin!

    Check into a buyers tailgate spreader, have heard alot of good things about them. We have a couple of Snowex 1075 and they work well even after 4 or 5 years.

    not to bust your balls, but there is a dedicated forum called Ice Management/Control where this question belongs, you will find a lor more information over in that forum as far as spreaders are concerened.
    Also, you didn't say what you wanted to spread... If you want to do sand, the spreader you mentioned will not work, if not, than it will probably be ok.
