    What do you guys think of the snowex spreaders? We have a snoway spready now which is ok...but its kind of small and doesn't spread as nice as we wish. The only thing that is keepin us away from getting a snowex is it obstructs the view out the back window which the snoway doesnt..... SO what are yalls opinions

    I like the fact that there aren't any chains, belts or pulleys (all 12 volt elect.)-so there is

    less overall maintenance and less parts to repair and or replace. :nod:

    I love my snowex tailgate and my boss has a snow ex vbox. 8000 class iirc. We ran it (vbox) every storm last year putting around 5k through it each time and I've never heard him complain about it. I ran it twice and its very nice. With being all electric its nice not to have to worry about a second gas motor not working right.

    Please look into buying a Salt Dogg first I own both sno-ex has not stood the test of time and everything for them is very expensive. They also fight people on there warrenty big time. The salt dogg it the best in my oppinion so far.Hands down.

    Their tail gates are awesome. I ran an 1875 for years w/o compaint. The 8000 is junk. I had a lot of problems running bulk salt through it.

    The controller is the weak link, you will need to buy one at the worst time. If it was me and I bought one, I would call Bob at Karrier Company in Ohio and get his controller. They don't put out as much salt as my dump insert.

    To be honest with you I have a new 3000 series and to be honest with you it sux. We took out all the metal in the back of the spreader and it still won't go through without a man on the back. Any Ideas on how to make it work better before i chuck the thing of my truck.
