    Does anyone know if boss has any plans to manufacture a solid cover for their spreaders, and if so will they retrofit to already purchased spreaders? also does anyone have any of these that has run them for at least a season? looking for some feed back on ground clearance when fully loaded. Im looking for a spreader for my '14 F350 pick up

    We ran 250yds through ours last season. Its mounted in an 05 F-350 drw, no issues with ground clearance fully loaded. Don't forget the height of the spinner is adjustable somewhat as well. Had issues with incorrect gear oil (freezing up in our cold weather) and bad sensor for top gate. After that was corrected by Boss all was good.

    I ran 150 yards through mine . I have a 06 2500 hd with air ride suspension. I absolutely love this spreader. It never let me down.

    I'm holding out for the solid cover. Not enough improvements overall on the spreader to justify the cost difference from Salt Dogg right now. They are definatly nicer, just not 2K nicer.

    They're closer to boss. Salt doggs are cheap $3500
