    I bought a used buyers spreader and I'm not getting a good amount to come out of the spreader. I called a buyer rep. and hooked up the wires the way I was told. But I think it is backwards for what i think the auger should be turning. I just want to make sure before I wreck something. Thanks in advance.

    The auger on the spinner should look like it is going to screw it self up into the salt hopper

    Hope this helps:drinkup:

    Switch the +/- wires on the motor, that will reverse the rotation and most likely fix your problem.
