    Our town highway dept spreader trucks have 2 liquid tanks on the bed next to the bottom of the big V spreaders. I assume they are spraying MAGIC (or something similar) into the spinner or chute, because I dont see any spray bars or nozzles on the back of the truck. Would this type of system be available for the smaller V spreaders that we use? I cant buy MAGIC salt in the area, only straight rock salt. I realize its better to pre treat the salt in the piles, but was wondering about alternatives.:drinkup:

    swenson has one (i bought one) that is made for the swenson v but will fit any v-box...well made and not terribly expensive.

    I am actually going to mount it to an under tailgate unit...that was not the initial intention but it ended up that way

    When i was researching the pre-wet systems swenson was one of the few people who i could get a hold of at the factory to get some real answers...and swenson left me with little or no questions left

    my v-box is a 1.4 yard snow-way unit and it would fit on that nicely...biggest difference with the sizes is the holding tank size

    Call Jim Yonkers at NYTANK in Weedsport, New York, he custom built a pre-wett tank for my two yard airflo sander, I had it custom built to 1) be a prewett and to spray the material coming out of the sander and 2) a straight liquid app, to apply liquid to pavement through a removable spray bar. They are a great company to work with and also the price was very resonable. The phone number is 1-800-988-5774 and ask for Jim Yonkers he is a great guy.

    Check out www.snowequipmentsales.com They build the systems for us at ODOT. They work excellent. Lately we have been using calcium chloride to prewet the salt, due to the very cold temps.
