    Has anyone ever seen or used the towable spreader in the link below? It would be perfect for me this winter but I would like any info anyone may have about it. Any help would be appreciated greatly.

    Obviously it would be a pain to have to get out and unhook it at each plow job, but looks decent other than that. Also, while salting if it's really slick you may have a problem backing up when you need to. Don't know if those are concerns for you, just a few thoughts......

    As one stated in another reply, unhooking at each job would become old soon. Unless you are in large vacant lots, you will spend alot of your salt spreading time backing up. Backing a towable unit would be a production killer. Looking at the tires, they appear to be lawn mower type tires, not highway tires. For the about the same money, you can get into a entry level tailgate spreader.

    I have used a trailer mounted spreader for 4 years now. It is a bit bigger than what I saw in ad. Never a mishap, plan ahead, it's tough to turn around, bigger spreader = less trips to the salt pile. Mine is 4.5 yd stainless mounted on a tandem axle gooseneck trailer.
