Prevent leaking issues when using fine pellet and flake materials, such as many commercially available non-salt ice melt materials. The material control tube is a sleeve that holds the auger and prevents expensive, fine grain ice melt materials from uselessly leaking out as you drive down the road.
The optimum flow kit improves material flow and allows spreading of a 50/50 salt/sand mix with a vibrator and dual pitch baffle. The vibrator helps to keep material moving inside the hopper while the dual pitch baffle maintains an even feed of material to the auger, preventing bridging and over loading of the auger motor.
Don’t risk corrosion problems—use WESTERN® dielectric grease! Western Products recommends all owners consistently use our special formulation dielectric grease to protect all electrical connections in the tough winter snow, ice, and salt conditions.
