Hello all, just starting snow removal commercially. Have a dozen small clients with 8-15 parking stalls so will sand/salt with walk behind spreader. But I have 1 church with a larger lot and would like to spread with a larger hopper. I am pulling skid steer on flat deck so would need access to my hitch for any type of sander. any suggestions?

Most any electric hopper spreader will allow you to remove the chute in seconds. You could pull it off, transport it on the trailer, then reinstall it at the site after you dropped the trailer

Edit: you would need to confirm that you had enough turning radius with the trailer attached and spreader in bed

Thanks, I though that was the case but my dealer told me the Western Tornado requires 2 people to move chute. I also looked at the Fisher and seems to be same design. I'll call elsewhere to check on Snow-ex and Salt Dog

Depends on your definition of "require" - it is easier with 2 people because it's bulky but it certainly isn't required.
