    Ok heres the deal.

    I have a mini storage facility I plow and it is the only site that needs salting.

    I can keep my unit there for 75 a month for 5 months and use it to spread salt. I can do the entire site on three loads.

    I can wrap, and protect the unit to a certain extent and remove the boom (or not) Trailer it out to wash as frequently as I want.

    I'm trying to avoid spending 1600 on a tailgate unit at least for this year.

    I'm fairly confident the unit would make a tremendous salt spreader.

    But then Im behind the spread and breathing the dust.....could wear a mask but wont.

    Is this a rinky dink bonehead idea and I should just buy a Tailgate unit, or what.

    Just tell me to get off my ass and get the TG
