    here is a prototype, "safe spreader" it has the optional front facing work light that adjust from flood to spot (handi if you tend to run when you spread)

    you'll also notice the rusted....i mean Rustic frame witch is living proof that the fluidfilm is doing it's job.

    the overhead light is what really makes this a "safe" unit. right now we have amber and clear light's available...but for those Salting emergencies, we also offer a RED or a Blue lens. (with proper proof of emergencie service vehicle card of course)

    light is for sale seprately to upgrade youre existing salter but may void warranty if not installed corectly (hire a profesional installer)

    the Light base,....or "hat" if you will, comes in many colors to meet youre Fleet color's.

    as we speak the engineer's are designing a "Strobe shovel" as per Mark Oomkes order comitment of 35 unit's.

    The, Mexican in the picture must be purchased seperatly.

    I will apologize up front as I know I am always a tough sale. Might just be too picky for you to even want to bother chasing this sales lead. But, will you throw in a few anti-snot-sickle options in order to get a sale. Problem I always have with the sidewalk crews are the frozen buggers which seem to melt all over the seat when they get back in the truck. Otherwise, maybe another product to add to your merchandise lineup would be a platform they could ride on from job to job like the old garbage trucks. Throw in the anti-snot-sickle feature for the help and I will try one of each item. Then call me about February and I will pick apart your product for you, complain about any short comings, and probably order some more if I can talk you into a multi-volume discount. lol You guys crack me up.
