    has anyone had experience with the salt dogg tgs02 hitch mount spreader?
    we are considering purchasing a couple instead of getting more western 500 spreaders.
    just looking for firsthand user experiences of shortcomings and benefits please.
    thank you!

    i don't know about the tgs02 but i have the tgs07 for a few years now and has been good to me for what i have to salt. only real issue was the controller when i first got it but it was replaced under warranty. just try and keep clean and coated with some spray i hit mine with fluid film.

    Tgs02 spreader

    I just got one this year. It seems to be an OK unit. I had mine installed by the place I bought it. The wiring was not seated properly and came out of the fuse box, once that was fixed. It seems OK. I have a 900 foot driveway that goes up an elevation of 125 feet. It spreads good. I can do my driveway one time with it loaded. I use flake ice melter.
