    Ha Ha :p

    I love helping out others to spread almost any material in the 3 hole hoppers like a dream when they divorce the Z.

    For my fourth service I have been running Screeming Green 16-2-3 on all acts with no screens in the hoppers, I haven't had a clog :D

    I haven't had a clog since the invention of the breakthru Agitator and I have run just over 60 pallets of Materials. :drinkup:

    See that tiny half ounce of milorgainite and screemin green remaining. Why not invent a block of wedge-shaped plastic placed so the spreader would empty full--with no flat spot?

    I purposely had left a little in that lesco hopper for the pict.
    Regg, I have been running a new test today in that new Lesco push Spreader in the shop.
    Been Running a very fast running speed for 7 hours so far and = to about applying 11,200 lbs of ice melt through it so far. 40 lbs every 90 sec.
    Drill is getting a work out. IMG_20170913_191324971.jpg

    So you now have 11,000 pounds of salt on your floor? Huh?
    And the goal is to test the Breakthru agitator--or is this new project?
    How many miles per hour do you think this is ?
    Would have been easier to use a Permagreen Triumph.

    Is there enough electric to run a 12 volt fan for cooling the operator?

    Different project, a Breakthu Agitator was in the hopper doing it's job and the salt was auto feeding back in. Lesco push Spreader was easy to mount up , would be difficult to mount a Permagreen like I did for this test, probably impossible. Speed was about 4 mph.
    Shut it down, got results I wanted to see.
    Can't say any more.
    I know you like Testing things that is why I brought it up .
