    if the opening leading to the spinner is large enough, it should.

    I modded a Scott's SpeedyGreen 3000 to work with rock salt, cut out the bottom a bit to allow better flow, and it works great.

    The plastic wheels vs. rubber wheels. The plastic ones sometimes slip and then the spinner doesn't turn to spread.

    Easy fix for this is to glue a strip of rubber around the circumfrence of the wheels. Works great on kids' Power Wheels vehicles as well!

    I put some studs from dirtbike tires in mine, works great! sheet metal screws would also work. Problem is it goes "click click click click click click"... whatever.
