As far as I know there was never a "salt spreader". However there were various seeder attachments that could be easily adapted to spread rock salt.

I hope I didn't miss how far your drive or area is to treat. I know seat time is good but walking behind a spreader is better health wise. I know getting on & off my cub is good for me because it keeps me warm & my body free. The idea is good. Mother Nature hands us things we don't like but she will take it away in time.
Be Safe.

Every one I've seen runs on 12Vdc, tho. A 12Vdc brush motor, in theory, can run on 6Vdc - with less RPM and torque of course. In practice, the unit might have a brushless DC motor and that will not run on 6Vdc if designed for 12Vdc. Of course, they come set up to house their own battery, so you could go that route also and forget powering from the tractor.

John hasn't been on the forum for almost two years. I don't know what happened to him, but I doubt he will see this.
