    Does anyone have the newer, 2nd generation 1.8 yd Tornado with the inverted V? From some of the vids on YouTube the 1st generation has been nothing but problems. Any problems with the 2 electric motors holding up or allianment of belts? I also herd that the spread pattern leaves rings of salt in parking lots. I currently run Western Ice-Breaker SS with a Honda engine but I am looking to go electric. Any comments would be great.

    haven't had any problems with the recent generations...the original was not so good. they also made some changes to the shoot deflectors that may have helped that issue. Great units.
