    Has anyone ever used a smith v-box with a rubber conveyor belt instead of the chain? I just bought a used one and it came with a rubber conveyor belt on it, I was wondering if it works as well as the chain.(I hope so!)

    I've never used one but I think it would. Many of the municpal units have been going to get. I would think it would hold up better to the salt also.

    They will actually provide the most even spread and all the material will fall off into the chute.
