Most people have bought this product but have not taken into consideration the steps and requirements of how you should use it. One very important thing to do is read the sticker that has been placed on the inside of the hopper that says, remove the little mixing bar from the shaft in the hopper for rock salt. Most people avoid that, but if you do it that way, then it won’t put too much stress on the spinning system, and you will have no problems using it.
This is a product that has been made with quality and known experts in the field. It will make sure that it spreads your products well enough without any problems. One thing that makes these items be loved by those that use them is that they are simple to use and easy to clean. Have a look at what we have for you.

For those who that have problems about the product collecting inside the wheel and then dropping off creating burn spots, you don’t have to raise a loud alarm because a very easy fix is available. To fix the issue, just take the left wheel off, then press an 8″ aluminum pie plate against the hub to make the imprint. Cut out the hole and then slide the pie plate and wheel back on the axle. Then use a mallet to pound gently the pie-plate flat enough so that it clears the bearing, and you have created a cover for the inside of the wheel. Your work continues smoothly form here onwards.

#5. Earthway High Output Snow and Ice Melt Spreader
What we are bringing you an EarthWay 2040PiPlus that is a Semi-Professional version of the very popular 2030PiPlus HIGH-OUTPUT broadcast spreader. That shows you that this is the perfect item for Snow and Ice Melt. The 2040PiPlus puts acknowledged quality and peculiarities in a smaller partially assembled package unlike what others have in the market. The 2040PiPlus outperforms all other spreaders of its size and price with true Commercial features at an affordable cost.
Like the solid bar control, Hopper takes a 50lb back of rock salt perfectly without any sweat. It has been designed with a control gate that will dump that 50lb in no time if you’re not careful, so you need to make the correct adjustment at the handle to avoid this. It slings salt nicely – no edge guards, but you can easily make an adjustment to the gate setting on the fly and do narrow areas.
These products come mostly assembled except for the rod that connects the hand lever with the door that opens and closes to let the salt, but that won’t be a big deal for you to handle. When you try to put the rod in, be cautious not to force it in but put it gently. These are great spreaders. Don’t dissipate your money on those cheap fertilizer spreaders. These are designed to spread salt and do a great job. I like the adjustable side shields so you should try and use any of them.
