Salt spreader

I purchased a Scott's Edgeguard Mini Broadcast spreader this year for seeding my lawn. I am planning to to use it to spread salt/ice melt this winter too. I'm am concerned about the plastic wheels sliding on the ice and/or snow. One of the wheels are connected to the piece that spins and spreads whatever is in the hopper. Therefore when that wheel moves, that spreader piece spins. Has anyone made any modifications to the wheels to give it better treads and grip?

The weight of the ice melt in hopper will suffice.

You could always put screws through the wheels to make a studded wheel/tire.

I have the same spreader, never had a problem. The edgeguard thing really works great for sending the calcium pellets right where you want 'em.

I guess I'll have to test it out...that is if we ever get snow here in CT.

I'm sorry, but may I ask you why you want to spread salt around?
