    Hello All,
    I am just looking for a small light weight spreader that I can remove/attach easily between jobs. I would be using this for a couple of small parking lots and a few driveways here and there. Also, does anyone know of a unit like this that will spread both salt and sand, rather than just salt? Any input will be greatly appreciated!

    Most of them will spread sand and salt....as long as it is DRY
    I have a Western 100 and it works great

    I am looking for a control unit for a buyers spreader on my atv. The unit was originaly mounted on a pick up but is now mounted on an atv and only had a on/off switch plugged into the lighter. Would prefer a variable speed that can be wired into the machine, any thoughts out there

    i believe you'll have to change the motor on it if your looking to make it variable speed or you'll burn it up.
