    I have an older hi-way model P spreader. the spreader runs good. only problem is the last year it really only spread on the right side of the truck. 90% of the salt came out the right side.
    any suggestions???

    Flaps inside chute adjustable or did someone weld them in a fixed position?
    May have to play with "timing" on spinner vanes to get it to throw like you want.

    Maybe theres a chunk in the chute. That would happen to mine every once in awhile.

    I dont think mine has the inner baffler in it, just has the hopper walls
    there is a piece going from side to side the a small A piece

    have to give it another try and see how its working
