    Looked at specs but not sure of needed advantages of 2500 over 1000. Local dealer said 1000's are priced at $2400 plus tax and install. I think that is unbelieveably high. Saw a dealer in IL on ebay with the 2500 priced at $1700. Just curious on avg prices and recommendations on which model to buy.

    Stay away from the 2500. In MY opinion it is not worth $50.00. I had it for about a week and finally got Western to take it back. It actually holds LESS salt than the 1000. I have an old 1000 and it works like new after 15 years of abuse. I am not sure on pricing, but I bought a Salt Dogg 1.5yd in bed last year delivered for $3150.00.

    picked up my 1000 with receiver mount for just over $1400 (between $1400-1500, don't remember exact price) NEW from the dealer last December. I did the install my self, very easy.
