    We have three 2 yd. salt doggs(electric); as long as the baffles are adjusted for either treated or straight salt, they run great for the money(jmo). Salt requires less opening as it is usually dry,most purveyors of treated are in great big piles thus you receive wet...hope this helps. good luck!

    Get the 2000 model. It weighs about the same and is only slightly longer than the 1500, and costs about the same too. You may think you don't need it, but it's better to have more than you need than to buy the 1500 and have buyers remorse.

    Not sure about that saltdog 1500,buddy of mine has one and not to happy.
    As for the snow x poly owned one and it was a POS.
    Have a Fisher procaster this year and so far the best i have owned.
    Good luck its easy to get a POS when it comes to sand/salters easy for straight salt.

    Anyone use the Salt Dogg for sand/salt mix? I am thinking of a 2 yrd one for next year. All my accounts are 75/25 sand/salt mix. I need 2 yrd capacity as some of my lots take a full 2 yard application. Sand is stored under cover so it is somewhat dry, but as with any sand, it holds moisture. Just wondering if this machine can take the load. Thanks
