    I have several F-650s that need new tail gate salt spreaders.
    I am looking for the best way to set up my trucks and want to incorporate the following:
    - Hydraulic tail gate spreader
    - Liquid calcium spray for the spinner...Pre-Wetting
    A technique whereby a concentrated liquid freeze point
    depressant is sprayed onto solid salt or sand at the time it
    is applied.
    - Liquid tank can be installed on tail gate or under truck body.
    - Simple in cab operation for the operator.

    I have the Snow X 2100 and it doesn't have the power to throw the salt like my hydraulic spreaders.

    Who makes a good reliable unit and/or if you have made your own...how did you make it and what components did you use?

    Thanks in advance for your help!!!
