I'm a big fan of them...

isnt a a pain always having to dump the body to get the salt to the back? how long can you spread before having to dump again? 2-3 minutes?

We only have one truck officially "over CDL", our hydroseeder, which requires a CDL-B. However quite a few of our other trucks require a CDL-A license to operate them when towing a trailer.

It takes about 30-45 seconds to raise & lower the body to shift the salt to the back. On average we can do 3 small parking lots with one raise/lower of the body. It's not as inconvenient as you would think. They have never once clogged, or jammed up on us. There is not an additional gas engine to maintain, like our old v-box spreaders. We can carry more salt as well. When you are done for the day you can just dump the salt out instead of having to spin it out like the V-box. Overall we are very pleased.

Thanks, I have a few electric v box's but have always wondered about the tailgate...

Hey PRO TURF

Are you guys gearing up yet for spring, getting any equipment ready yet? We still have a foot and a half of snow on the ground here in WI.
