"This spreader requires a trailer hitch or ball mount in your bumper if you don't have one you will have to get one. We have a lift gate so no bumper or hitch we had to make a custon hitch so it was not really a tailgate mounted unit the hitch support the weight so it must be a good one. Once instaled it works very well."

Great helper

"This spreader has been a big help for us on the farm. Once the vibrator kicks in, it spreads the sand and salt mixture that we used to do our parking lots and driveways much better than we had anticipated. In the past we had to do it by hand which took us up to an hour to cover everything. Now we load the sander and off we go and we are done in 15 minutes."

bolt holes and wireing

"the product works great now that unexpected drilling is complete. the holes that attach the michene to a truck, or in my case a swinging frame that sits on my bumper, are off by a half inch. the wireing instructions were perfect except for 2 wires you had to light test to figure out where they go. the instruction diagram was accually very missleading."

Meyer Tailgate spreader

,
March 23, 2009
By saltydog
from Laurens Ia.
"I purchased this unit for its sand spreading ability. "Be carefull when you buy one that it will spread sand not all do." It takes two guys to load and unloaded from the tailgate and 14 50pd bags of sand to fill it. Once you figure out your best spreading speeds it works really well. I adjusted the spreader disc up as high as it would go and run the speed at 8 this lets me idle around the parking lot with out riding the brake to much. The spreader reduced my time spreading salt and sand on parking lots and sidewalks buy 80% . I can also report we had No falls due to Ice this year."
