    Hi all! I recently purchased a year old 575 in excellent shape and am interested in spreading bulk salt with it. Will the addition of a vibrator be enough to make this possible or do I need something else? Happy and Safe plowing to all of you!! :waving:

    Thanks for the information everyone! The salt is dry and fairly coarse. Also I see guys talking about using liquid film to help the life of the spreader. What is that and where do I get it. Thanks again!!
