    I have a Snowex Mini-pro 575 spreader, and had some isssues with it and wont go into detail ..but had the motor rebuilt (for free) but i think they built it too good and it draws too many amps :dizzy: , so the controller keeps showing OL code which i know means overload(and this is just plugging it into truck with out being on the spreader just the motor alone). my question is, who has the best prices on replacing the motor?. and also i have found a site where it says to use Aeroshell 33 grease in the transmission, is this a common greas i can get at a hardware store or do i need to order it online? or what can i use compareable?

    Thank in advance to anyone who replys and i hope Y`all make a buttload of money this season! xysport

    Do you want a oem motor or an aftermarket motor.
