What is the Difference Between # 337TGSUVPROA and # 337TGSUV1B?


Hi Is 337TGSUVPROA same as 337TGSUV1B except the auger and controls ? Would it fit my vehicle 2001 Jeep TJ SPORT ?


Expert Reply:

The SaltDogg Electric Hitch-Mount Salt Spreader for 2" Hitch - Gravity Feed w Auger # 337TGSUVPROA and the SaltDogg Electric Hitch-Mount Salt Spreader for 1-1/4" or 2" Hitch # 337TGSUV1B have a few differences. The # 337TGSUVPROA has a spread range of 3-30 feet while the # 337TGSUV1B has a spread range of 12-24 feet. Another difference is that the # 337TGSUVPROA has a 1/2 HP motor that is directly controlled by the controller. The # 337TGSUV1B, on the other hand, has a 1/8 HP motor that is powered by the auxiliary plug that only has a single speed. I went ahead and attached a video that talks about these differences and features.

As far as the fitment with your vehicle, only the # 337TGSUV1B is confirmed to fit your 2001 Jeep TJ Sport. However, I confirmed with Buyer's Products you only have about 4 inches from the furthest pinhole to the closest part of the hopper. This means that you will have to remove the spare tire from your TJ in order to fit the # 337TGSUV1B. We currently do not carry any other salt spreader that will work on your 2001 Jeep TJ with a spare tire mounted.

For a hitch recommendation for your 2001 TJ Sport, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75193. The Draw-Tite hitch has a tongue weight of 400 pounds, which is plenty of weight capacity to transport and operate the 68 pound salt spreader with added salt.
