    Hi Guys ,

    Will the snow ex flow gate kit help me save some cost in salt? I find my 1075 spreader throws pretty heavy.

    Here is my dilemma. I am doing a few Tim Horton drive throughs when running through can get stuck behind a car . The snow ex spreader if I turn it off and then on again 9 out of 10 times it will blow the 20 amp fuse under the hood . I thought this was a problem with my last one I bought a new 325 micro pro last season. It would also blow fuses unless you first get out of the truck , and give the auger a manual spin. Then you will be good to go. The new 1075 has the same issue so it is obvious that it is a snow ex problem.

    So If I am stuck behind the car in the drive through I can't shut the salter down or I might blow the fuse. If I had the flow gate kit how much can you restrict the material. Does the flow gate kit help prevent the auger from getting jammed, and blowing fuses?
