    i know they dont reccomend bulk or sand etc for them.. figured i had some bagged stuff i wanted to use up, so i added a little at a time in between bagged 50lbs of salt.. 1 bag per hopper... nada, doesnt work good

    First off, you cant see or hear when the sand is coming out, its quiet compared to the hard salt hitting the ground.

    Second, it jams up faster than a sewer hooked to a porter john... even hitting the outside with my boot, the faintest amount of sand would come spinning out. I spent a ton of time trying just for it to feed the sand out to get back to pure salt.. it just doesnt work

    So lesson learned, dont bother trying anything other than ice melters or bagged rock salt in them, it just clogs up in the bottom of the funnel hopper.

    Probably need some sort of auger for it to work properly.
