• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

How open is salt spreader gate?


I have my gate open about 2" on my v box, this lets me travel about 20 miles an hour for general rock salt. Is this in line with your salter anyone?

I'm not too sure how this will compare to your V-box, but I have my Pro Flo 2 on the 3rd screw up. I think the opening is about 2-3inches coming off the belt. Seems to be perfect.

On my gas powered v box the gate is open 1"
On the smith about 2" because the apron chain runs slower. Actually leaving right now, to presalt in case of flash freeze due to cold road temps and rain/sleet coming in one hour.

Our gas drive Vee box REALLY puts out material. I have found (only one use so far) that I have the gate shut as far as possible, maybe a 1" gap, and I am running just above idle unless it's a wide open lot where I can sling the material quite a ways without salting the lawn.
