    Anybody have any feed-back on an electric v-box by Swenson. I was thinking about the 10' version
    Thanks, Tom

    Auger version: only if you have the patience of Job and a backup salt truck.

    Conveyor version: huge improvement but the spinner needs some work.

    They had some issues with the auger version and controller issues too. Depends who you call and what they have in stock. If they have auger version they will try and sell you that.

    I've got a swenson 8ft. electric v box and have no gripes or problems. Replace a bearing and chain from time to time, but that's it. The unit is one of the first swenson electric v's that came out. I believe my was a prototype used for display.

    Thanks for the replies, I ended up going with the Honda motor. I've always had good results and no issues with the gas motor. Just thought that the electric might be better. Going with what I know works and the truck is parked inside
