    Last season i purchased a salt dogg 1400600ss electric spreader I love the Quiet operation of the unit but i have problems with material sticking to the chain and unloading in my bed by the cab. Is this a characteristic of a chain on a v box or am i doing some thing wrong?

    Yes they all do. Keep this area clean! The salt will become rock hard if you don't. If you ever need to de thaw hard salt, try windshield washer fluid. This works great!
