    Anybody had any experience with a tailgate spreader that fits on the back of a EZ dump type of pick-up dump-box? Just wondering if it would spread sand, hate to tie up the back of one of my trucks with a V-box, but I,m going to have to increase my spreading capacity this season.

    My buddy has 2 of those units, and that is all he uses for sanding and salting. The trouble is the cost for the tailgate sander is almost as much as a v-box. He says they work great for him, doesn't objust visablity as much as a v-box.
