    So does anyone else have a problem with the Tornado, Poly-caster or Blizzzard poly spreader dropping salt in 2 heavy bands about 18 inches apart under center of spreader? I know it does this beacuse of the guard around the spinner, but am I just trying to throw too much salt and do i need to turn my chain down. Or do i need to cut the curled in tabs off and weld pieces of stainless at less of an angle to try to cut down on this, other than this small issue i think its a great spreader.
