    Hello. I’m the dumbass from the video.

    First thing, my spreader was bolted down in 8 locations. I put quarter inch stainless backer plates under the flatbed so they wouldn’t get pulled out in an accident. That’s why I didn’t cross my straps. (My friend is in commercial motor vehicle enforcement and he thought I definitely went above and beyond)

    Secondly, I’m glad you didn’t have any of the issues with your unit that I had. I’ve only used Snowex. They make good stuff. I was just disappointed by some quality issues on MY spreader.

    As you mentioned, the tarp is too small and I get quite a bit of salt flung back under my truck too.

    Have a good one!

    Do you still get the high pitch whine?
    I also got that high pitch noise when my light was on, drive me nuts!
