Uhhh, how dumb am I? I just bought a used EZ-Flow spreader for liming my fields. This will work with sand and salt as well? Won't the salt corrode the heck out of it?

I just never thought of using it for anything other than lime...

Now I just need to get the tires and wheels up to snuff on it...

Keep it cleaned out after use. After you wash it out, spray a coat of light oil on everything inside. No more likely to rust than the metal parts on a typical spinner type spreader. I have an old IH "EZ Flow" spreader that's had tons of corrosive fertilizer ran through it. No rusting problem.

I almost forgot, there is a company that has a small pull type drop sander. I think that it is called an E-Poky. That may not be how it is spelled but that is how it sounds when said. I had contact with someone in Bufflao NY last year, about one. They have one that is made to do side walks. Where I use to work we had one.

What ratio of salt to sand do you use?
I use
3 parts sand to 1 part salt
2 parts sand to 1 part salt
1 part sand to 1 part salt
depending on how strong a salt mix I want with the sand.
