    I was told to stay away from the electric one, amp draw issues on my older 95 250 truck and upgrades are coming possibly next year on the system so I bought a snow-o-way v box gas job. Used it last night and was impressed! My last one was an air flow years ago and never worked quite right. The swing a way lower unit was the cats a** we used it to load sand in buckets like a dispenser and unloading it all dumped in a neat little pile. I did buy a 6 1/2 foot unit so I did not need to take out my tool box crowned the sand and still left the yard at 11,200 LB (oops) it seems to be a great unit I will keep everyone informed. As I could break anything. :salute:

    If you are looking for a Quality all Electric V box look at SMITH or DOWNEASTER. I think it is the Downeaster that offers a swing out spinner chute. These two seem to be the best in the market for all electric.

    I just added a Downeaster Dump insert with a tailgate replacement spreader this season. This an all electric unit and I have put about 10 ton of salt through it so far trouble free. Nice even pattern, feeds clean and runs quiet.

    I do not miss the "Hope the spreader will start this time" worries.
