    I asked this once before and got some ideas. Which spreader are you guys happy with? I am spreading with sand only. I have looked at Western Pro flow 2, Snow Way 9, Buyers 332-0060, Fisher speed caster 2, and snow ex sandpro SP-1875, on the internet. I have no clue which is the better and worst. I'm leaning toward the western proflo 2 but and still unsure of what I am doing. I know that I don't need anything like a v-box spreader because of the limited amount of business in my area. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    The western and fisher are the same unit. The snow ex mounts entirely different. All these units are quality spreaders. Look at the mounts and what will work for you, they are different. I think the snow ex may me a couple bucks cheaper too. The snow ex has a swing gate option for it, I have that for my 1075. Also look at who stocks parts locally, it could be a real son of a gun if you loose a motor or transmission (spreader parts) during a storm and have to mail order parts.
