Rated 1 out of 5Â by Andrec 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.

Makes sense to me. Throw snow, drop salt. Two birds, one stone. Only took a few minutes to mount and it just plain works great. Well worth the money. I bought some for my family for Christmas and they love it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Gilmen 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.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by NewEnglandFTHB Doesn't fit all Ariens Snowblowers!
I own Ariens Deluxe 2-Stage 28 in. Gas Snow Blower (Model # 921022). I was excited to use this product as I assumed it was universal for Ariens, It was not and the box didn't specify that. Very disappointed as I was looking forward to using this.

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.
