    Looking for the best push spreader that will do a good job with spreading bulk salt(Road Salt). I am not really interested in the most expensive since my guys have a hard time taking good care of equipment that gets taken on and off the back of the truck. I plan on just buying a carbon steel frame. The central parts spreader looks decent and they say its the best for the money. Anybody purchased one of these? Im not sure i can take their word for truth

    Don't waste money on a cheap spreader. I have two SnowEx push models. Worth every penny of their cost. I've used the cheap models in the past, but no comparison. Take my advise, as I've been in the business for 44 years now!

    SnowEx. They have a drop spreader or broadcast spreader.

    They're not cheap, but they also last a long time, so long term you will spend less money.

    We have used Meyers hotshots, lesco, earthways in the past and they all break. The Meyers was a total piece of junk.
