I'm looking to buy a brand new down Easter 8ft electric sander
Going to look at it tomorrow at dealer,
I see there is a single electric motor and also a duel eletric motor setup
doesn't say what it has in the add.

Does anyone run a single motor setup.?
Is it enough power to spread salt and sand correctly
Does anyone run the dual motor setup.?

Pros ans cos of single single motor vs dual motor setup

I appreciate any feedback I can get

Thank you in advance
Mark

Double electric motor is best, as one motor powers the spinner assembly and the 2nd motor powers the Auger/Drag Chain. With 2 motors, you can supply less sand/salt with one motor, and spread it further with the other motor. With only one motor, you are speeding up both Auger and spinners at the same time. The only Pro to single motor, is that you would only have to replace one motor if it fails instead of two. Motors tend to get expensive, and OEM motors are best as China ones only last 1 year if lucky.
