whats better auger or chain drive for my truck salt spreader?
the boss is asking me. I have been using an old spreader I fixed up last year and now he wants to buy a new one. I told to get stainless with a with a chain drive on the bottom like I have now as it is simple to operate and works good. his customer says he can get a deal and the choice of auger came up. we work in colo. spgs. and the weather is interesting to say the least. the slicer we get can be wet when we pick it up and we don't have a skid loader,so I have to off load it into a bin when I'm done . I do large gas stations and small commercial now but who knows what he will sell if we have two spreaders (last year I did a Walmart). I like the control of the chain driven in concert with spinner and controlled with the throttle. the auger looks weak in the videos and the off loading looks slow. thank you, Karl
