    i picked up the unit used this year but I'm finding that i can only use bulk salt in the unit not the sand... The vibrator is running at 12volts like i should be but its not really shaking the unit unless its empty. Anyone else run into this problem and if so what was your solution to this matter ? thanks guys

    You need the inverted-v to shake the whole tub. Also they state that it will spread 50/50 mix sand /salt, that is by weight NOT volume. 1000lbs sand/1000lbs salt, NOT 1/2 yard salt and 1/2 yard sand. Sand weighs a LOT more than salt

    I removed the V baffle and cut the auger baffle in half and rejoined it with a stainless door hinge. Fully open for pickled sand.Normal for salt, you just reach in and open it when you switch to sand. Best I could come up with.
