Well,, bit the bullet and acquired a new Sno-Way "Spreadator" Vee box. Figured that I had absolutely NO time to mess with a used oen that might need work to get into dependable condition. This one is 1.4 yd, a little bigger than I wanted but the dealer didn't have the 1 yd model. It's sitting in the K2500 tonight, ready to go, IF we get any snow overnight. Forecast is for snow showers after midnight into morning. Now we have three spreaders in varying capabilities. The undertailgate spreader on the 5500, perfect for heavy applications or the times we need to use mix. The new vee box which will give us capability to carry enough salt so that we can plow and salt the whole "southern end" of our route without reloading. The SnowEx that was on the 2500 will be going on one of the S-10s for now. That will let us carry material and do the touch up applicationsif needed, without having to go back with another truck, which is what we have had to do in the past.
