    I am usuing the buyers tgsuv pro, and i got it from j- thomas! I would recomend the pro version becasuse it has the variable speed control and can throw salt about 30'. I got it becasue of the fact you can lay it down to get into the back of the truck with out actually removing it from the truck. I have it on a f 350, and use it for small commercial lots. I cam put 350lbs. of salt in it. I have never had any problems with it. Other than the fact it has a small hopper it can do anything my brothers snowex 1075 does!!! I am always getting stuff out of the back of my truck (snow thrower, broadcast spreader and ice melter for my condos) so it is nice to have easy access and it removes off the truck easily when not in use. The best part is it only weighs about 75 lbs. I looked all over and prices vary j- thomas was cheaper than anyone on ebay. It also doesn't hurt that they are only 45 minutes from my house! I had a small snowex and it died after two years( yes I wash my stuff every time I use it) So I wanted to get something cheaper, and the buyers has been working for two years now!!!

    Sno-Way produces 3 models of receiver hitch spreaders. Models would include 4, 6, or 9 cubic foot capacities. On/Off or variable speed controlled. The 4 cubic foot model can easily be installed on the hitch by one person. To learn more or locate a dealer in your area visit our factory website http://www.snoway.com .

    I have the Beyer suv

    This is my second season using the Beyer SUV spreader and the only complaint is that it dosn't throw bulk salt very good, but bagged salt it works like a charm.

    i have a buyers tailgate one that i use strickly for sand on the pickup and it works great. I also have a vi box on the 1 ton that gets more use now.

    DJ Contracting, to make bulk salt work, weld some arms to the top in c shapes and cut out the opening groove some more. it should help you with bulk salt alot better.
