Overall the spreader is a decent unit for the money. The unit came in a box of parts and for me (IT guy who is also builder), the assembly was much harder than expected. About 2 hours total to assemble . The toughest part of the assembly were the bolts that connect the motor and spreader base to the plastic tub . Four bolts going through various washers and brackets all to be assembled at the same time. Once assembled the unit bolted on to my Arctic Cat rear deck without much problem. The mounting plate they provided didnt help with my particular application, but may help for other ATV mounting options. As for the operation, the unit is quiet.. Its really TOO quiet because there are times when i am loading salt, I could not hear the wheel spinning and hit my knee against it. Its a single speed motor with the speed set to FAST ! The electrical connection is a simple two wire that can be connected through cig lighter or wired to a harness that fits your ATV. I went one step further, and would recommend it. bought a three speed heater switch from NAPA for $15 and covered the connectors with tape to waterproof and adapted it to my handle bar. I then wired it into the hot circuit so i could dial the motor speed down slightly. As for the gate that lets the salt drop out of the bin onto the wheel. Its manual but I did bolt a short wire from the gate handle and the other end to the hopper frame so that i can pull the handle out to a pre-set distance to regulate the proper flow of the rock salt. The hopper will hold close to three 40lb bags of rock salt. The biggest issue i have with the unit right now is that the circular grooves in the spinning wheel are probably fine for fertilizer, but they are too narrow and too shallow for rock salt, thus causing the salt to drop on top of the grooves and not spin out properly. This causes the spread width to be less than 3 feet , so i have to make two passes on the driveway, one for each tire track. I may build a better wheel out of wood or metal with a standard four fin design. As I said earlier, i am happy with the overall design and performance for my application.
