Im giving up carrying the spreader with me. Mainly because I really like using the PG rack of the back of the pick up. And with a short bed truck its really a pain in the butt to carry the Lesco spreader. So I decided to try and use the belly grinder type spreader. I have no experience with these things at all. What type are you all using and how hard is it to do a uniform app? Ive also been thinking of having my welder make a carrying rack that mounts to the plow frame up front and carry some misc items on that. Anyone have any photo's of racks mounted in front?
