    Today salter was working fine and then i drive to next location and when i turn the switch on the incab control light is on but nothing spinning in back? I hand unloaded salt and no blockage and wiring looks alright from what i can see. Does this mean i have a bad motor or could it be a messed up wire somewhere?

    Thanks ,

    i would say that you have a bad ground in the back. try leaving your switch on and go back to move the ground wire around.
    this happened to my buyers spreader once.

    Thanks, I ended up tracing the ground from the back all the way to the front under the hood and it ended up being a blown 30 amp fuse thats on the red power wire just at the battery! Thank god it wasnt the motor! So thanks for the info :)
