    How can you load test the motor without the factory test box?Loaded the spreader and it would start then stop even with a very small amount of salt in the hopper.Unit is 2 years old and in great condition.No green death at any connections and they are all tight.Any ideas?

    the best thing i might suggest is,,try hot wiring the motor, bypassing the controller, and see if that does any different? the only other thing, is it making any type of wierd noise???
    I just replaced 2 gear boxes on our 1075's that were only a few years old as well.
