Answer: 
There is no spinner. it works on gravity only and falls through holes onto an inverted "V" plate that spreads the salt. Please not the holes are small and large salt will not fit. I used eco-salt which is smaller pellets and it works fine.

Answer: 
It isn't. The chute drops pellets via gravity onto an angled platform to distribute ice melt to the left and right. Actually worked better than I expected.

Answer: 
For best performance Ariens recommends using an icemelt product with these characteristics:
does not clump.
non salt-based.
non-corrosive.
not harmful to landscaping, children or pets or
environment.
flows freely from the MeltBuddy.
Please check with your local Home Depot store for any melt salt they may carry with these qualifications.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Salting on the go I purchased this product this year and so far I am satified with its performance. Mounting this on my Ariens snowthrower was very easy the fit is great and sturdy. The control lever works well and allows you to regulate the amount of salt dropped.As the salt drops is disperses out the width of the snowthrower so when making multipul passes you aren't overlapping and wasting salt. By using this product I use less salt on my drive than I did in the past. My drive is about 1200 sq.ft. and I use about two/thirds of the container to salt the entire drive. Though I would not consider this product a necessity it is a great gadget for the the handyman that has it all. December 25, 2010
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nice science project First, congratulations to the kids that invented it. It was a very interesting science project. The main problem is, it's still a student project. The only thing Ariens added to it , is the nice design and their marketing power. They should have added some engineering . This thing would not spread anything but perfectly round and expensive ice melt pellets. Even there it would barely do it. Should you try any ice melt that does not fit these criteria, and it would jam. I tried it with various ice melt material, and finally decided to return the unit. I suggest you do not waste your time. Either Ariens redesign the thing or they should stop selling it under their well respected brand name. January 14, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad Bad Bad This thing is not worth it!!!!!!! It's better has a flower pot!!!!!!!!!! Save your $$ and get a bucket and a hand . You'll get 1000% better results... January 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by special expensive salt required. Regular Salt will not work in this. I installed and it doesn't work. Nothing in the description says special Salt is needed so it won't clog. I respect the way this was developed but do not like the missing info December 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Qr1063 >>> Spot Spreader <<<, it says it on the box…of course it is not for large driveways and parking lots. It does exactly what it was meant to do and does it well. November 29, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Interesting Concept First, I commend Ariens for supporting the two young students who invented this thing. But it should have ended there. Do you realize that the size of this "spreader" is 7x7x8 INCHES? If you only need enough ice melt that you could carry in a shoe box, why in the world would you need a snowblower? You could buy a childs pail and shovel to remove the snow and then fill said pail with ice melt to finish the job. As they say on TV, "common man"...what are you thinking. December 7, 2010
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ariens doesn't even fit an Ariens Unreal. I bought this to put on my compact 24 2010 model and like another reviewer pointed out, it doesn't fit on all modles. If you have to use the "clamp" to attach it you are in for a boat load of frusteration. I even asked about this on their facebook page and they admit it doesn't fit. Good job Ariens. I wonder why nobody buys "American" anymore. Hilarious. December 5, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Small but does a great job Bought this last year, used it with the blower..works great! I realize it's not going to carry a bucket full of sand/salt, but it does what it's supposed to do, sand/salt while clearing snow. One shot. Done! I have a small driveway that I clear and a path to the shed..does the trick every time. I have to fill it every 2nd storm.. not bad October 15, 2011
