Speaker 1:          Today, we're going to be taking a look at Buyer's hitch mounted salt spreaders. You can get this in the Standard version, part number 337TGSUV1B, or the Pro version, with part number 337TGSUVPROA.These hitch mounted spreaders are going to be great for SUVs, half, three quarter, and one ton trucks. The pro version has a spread range from 3 feet to 30 feet, while the standard version has a spread range of 12 feet to 24 feet. The 9 inch poly-spinner distributes the salt depending upon the speed that you've got set.The pro version has a half horse power motor and it's directly controlled by your controller. And the standard version has one eighth's horsepower motor, which is powered by the auxiliary plug and it only has one speed.Both have a 4.4 cubic foot poly-bucket that is going to be corrosion resistant. Additionally, this hopper is light weight making it easier to remove and install into your hitch. 

The brackets supporting the hopper and the motor has an orange powder coat finish to prevent against rust and corrosion.Another nice feature, you still need to access the back of your SUV or truck bed, you can lower down your tailgate, or open that lift gate, with the tilt away function, simply pull the pin, and release the pin from the unit itself, and with the pin removed, it'll lower down, tilting away, allowing you to lower it on your truck bed.Located here on the upright beam, we have five adjustable holes. Even though there are six holes, the top one can only be used for the tilt function. So you have five different positions you can place it in, height-wise. Coming out of the hitch, there are three holes to set the distance from your bumper.The manufacturer recommends the standard version for class three and four hitches, and class four for the pro version. You want to make sure that you don't exceed the tongue weight that your hitch has available.Here, we have our controlling unit.

The power button on the unit is hooked directly to the battery, so it'll turn on regardless of your key position. You'll know it's on when the light illuminates and the number value, produced speed, appears. This speed knob can go off, which is zero, all the way up to a max speed of nine. The blast button will automatically set the speed setting to nine, as long as your speed setting is turned to one or higher. We the option of vibrator installed.

You can depress the button, it will illuminate, and vibrate will be on, as long as the light's lit.Compared to push options, like this one from Buyer's, which is great for small driveways and patios, the hitch mounted spreader's going to be able to cover a much larger area, much faster, and from the convenience and warmth of your vehicle.Now, we'll show you how to get it installed. If you have the standard version, you simply put in your hitch and run the wire up and plug it into your auxiliary outlet. If you've got the pro model, you'll have a controller you'll need to install. We're going to go into a little bit more detail.You'll begin by finding a suitable mounting location for the circuit breaker that comes included in your kit. You'll need to make sure you have circuit breaker mounted close enough so the large red battery cable can attach to the battery positive post.

Now, you'll take the harness that has two ring terminals on it, with a red and black wire. The red wire will attach to the other end of your circuit breaker. This is the one on the breaker labeled, auxiliary. The back wire will connect to the negative post on your battery. You'll then route the rest of that harness inside your vehicle. You can route this through the firewall to get it inside. Once you get to your control box, simply plug it in to the red and black wire coming off your control box.You can mount your control box wherever you like. We've got ours mounted on top of the dash here. We've used screws with the included bracket. If you wanted to hide it, you could mount it underneath the dash and tuck your wires up underneath. It's going to vary on the installation procedure, depending your vehicle and how you route those wires.We'll then take the other harness that comes in the kit. It has the four pin connector. That'
