    I am looking into getting a new spreader for next year and was looking at the SnowEx Vee Pro Spreader 8000. Is this a good spreader? My only concern is how hard is it to load the spreader into the truck? Im getting sick of having to get out and load my hitch mount spreader all the time. Any info would be great.

    I have an 8000 and like it. The only issue that I have with it is that it will not always flow material 100% of the time. Usually 1/2 I have to stop and shovel the salt down and then its ok till the end. Thats with moist bulk salt, if you are using bagged salt then you should be ok. I load mine in and out with a fork lift so one man install takes 20 minutes. they do make a kit that makes it a one man job.

    I have a Snow Ex 8000 and I made a dolly out of 1x1 tube and have dooly wheels on it. Its the same height as the truck bed, I just grab it and slide it on the dolly for storage. Not the best solution but it has worked ok for me for 3 years now.

    hammerstein, elevate the front of the spreader about 4-6inches and your material will flow with out problems. We had the same trouble andthiscured it for us,we have been running three of them forfouryears and no complaint.
