    I'm considering buying an in bed salter, and from the buzz on the forums, most people are very pleased with the Salt doggs. What have you guys been paying for these?
    Thanks in advance

    Why not go for the two yarder... for 1k more..
    Good units especially for salt spread, If you do plan on using for treated sand..adjust the baffles... opened more and material dry as possible. JMO

    Go with the 2 yard for sure. If the truck wont handle all that weight, then dont fill it up :nod:
    The next truck might like it heaped.

    Another nod to Angelos. They work on slim margins. 3 years ago mid season I had a sph2000 shipped to my door (actually the semi droped it in the st., and I pushed the skid up the drive with the plow) for 3050.00
    I was gonna make the the run to Detoilet to pick it up, they shipped it for $150, and no tax . No brainer there.

    does it work

    Does the poly 2 yd electric work well with salt, I just bought one and am scared, I can NOT be stranded so to speak, I am used to gas chain V boxes.

    250 tons threw mine, replaced the motor transmission last winter. That was $450 if I recall. Never left me hanging, just wouldnt reverse on a jamb, the nut on the auger with a big wrench moved the chunk threw and off I went to finish my route. It always started at -10, at every lot LOL. The controllers are karrier, and they seem to work great compared to the sno-ex's that are prone to burning down at the wrong time.
    It wont spew a ton out in 3 minutes, but it works great for me.
    Had plenty of freeze ups, but that will happen in any v-box if you leave wet salt in them.

    They are the bomb with salt, for 4K you can not beat them. You will save material over the V-box as you learn to moderate your feed speeds for area needs i.e. more salt for shaded sections less salt for south face blacktop. You will not run out of gas, burn up a spark plug or need to add oil. You've gain 350 lbs of load capacity and located it better in the truck. You have replaced 7/9 bearings with one. A sealed motor transmission assembly lists for around $400 far less then the motor or transmission/gear reduction unit on the old gas drive v-boxes. Just as an experiment and for practice we have swapped them both out. It takes about 30 minutes.
