    Has anybody seen or made a spreader that directed salt to the side. Do two large commercials where cars are aways in the way of clearing and salting. Was thinking about making up something that would "throw" the salt under the cars as I passed behind. Maybe a side mount?

    No, but there ARE (or were, anyway) spreaders that had adjustable shafts so the spinner would ride down way low for this type of thing. you would crank the speed the prop speed up and lower the prop.
