I am turning to the pros for help.... I live on a two mile single lane unimproved private dirt road next to a lake. I have plowed it for years with gm 1500 and 2500's and both Fisher and Meyer plows (hate them both) I get into trouble when it turns into ice from say a thaw and refreeze. skating rink. Salt is the exact opposite of what i need because I don't care if the ice goes away, i just want traction on it, and in the spring the sand just becomes part of the road-no clean up. I am using whatever the highway dept offers residents I am assuming it a mix. Right now I sprinkle by hand, and just keep moving the truck which is very time consuming and tedious. I have a very low budget for a solution so I am looking for a small tailgate spreader or even a push/walk behind, sub $1000 would be awesome. It seems the only ones that get into this price point are salt only. Seed spreaders don't seam to work. so far the least expensive is a Hiniker at about $1700. Any ingenuous Yankees out there have a solution?
