    I have an Salt Dogg under tailgate electric salt spreader for my dump truck. I purchased used last year. The previous owner had it for 2 years. My question is does it require a vibrator? I had a lot of trouble getting salt to run though it. If so where would be the best place to mount it. I have always used v box spreaders. This spreader was in great shape and a good price so I purchased it. Thanks in advance.

    My condolences.

    My issues aren't related to getting salt through it. Not really sure if one would make a difference.

    I would skip the vibrator and save the money to spend on a couple spare controllers and motors as well as building a new heavy duty harness from scratch. Getting the salt to the auger was the least of my worry's when I owned two of them.
