    I have been looking into the purchase of a sander. I can't really decide on which way to go. I currently have a tool box in the bed of my truck cutting down the availible space to 6'. I like having my tool box but fear that a tailgate sander will be more work than it's worth. Does anyone make a 6' V box? That would basically give me a good capacity with out all the work of refilling as often? My truck is a 99 F350.

    Thanks for the info. I think if I get one it will be the ice-o-way. Although a little modification would be in order, like a 8&quot; extension to hold more material.<br>Thanks,<br>Ray

    Ray- You should get in contact with dino, he's in Bozrah ct. He uses Smith/Harder sanders. I believe they make a 6ft spreader, check out their site,&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.smithspreaders.com&quot;&gt;click here&lt;/a&gt;. Our town uses the electric version, you should look into them. Also, look in &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.bargainnews.com&quot;&gt;bargainnews&lt;/a&gt; because they have a lot of used spreaders. I believe the closest harder dealer to you would be American truck equipment in New London. Dino is at the SIMA conference which goes tills saturday (i think). <p>Bryan<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.snowplow.web.com&quot;&gt;The Snowplow Homepage&lt;/a&gt;<p><p><font size="1">Edited by: snow

    Both western and fisher will have 6.5' models for use in ext cab short bed trucks out this season. They were made because of all the interest in such a model.<br>See you do learn something from these shows.<br>Dino<p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment www.sima.org

    go with a v-box,a tailgate spreader is almost as much(2 stage),and it is not as powerful or esy to load.<p>----------<br>John D<br>
