    I have always like snowex tailgate spreaders. You can find them at a good price and they seem to do ok.

    Snowex has many great models to choose from.
    I have 3 1875 sandpro's , they have the swing away from the bed and most importantly, the vibrator for most wet material including sand.
    the motor and trans on it is encased and secure from any contaminates.
