    Hi All,

    I am new to this forum and the snow plow field. The property maintenance company I work for bought a plow truck with a Swenson v-box spreader in the back. It has 2 14 gal. tanks mounted on the sides of the v-box for salt brine spray. It looks like the spray mixes in with the sand before it hits the spreader. In the box with the pump is "electric valve looking thing" It has 2 wires going to it from the harness and in/out hoses. Does anyone know what that is. My guess is that it is a sensor that kills the pump when the tanks are empty, but I am not sure. Any info would be great.
