We spent 28 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. Falling temperatures bring snow and ice, which, in turn, lead to increased chores as you have to clear driveways and paths for safety. Designed for residential or commercial use on a truck or SUV, these tailgate salt spreaders will save you a lot of time and labor when you need to remove precipitation from asphalt or concrete. We chose our selections based on overall build quality and features. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.

Editor's Notes

December 27, 2018:

While our selections include only two brands of tailgate spreaders, we found that those two cover a range of uses, from light residential to heavy commercial, and offer a range of capacities. Most of our items also include the category's defining features, such as vibrators, augers, and in-cab controllers.

He now lives and works in the inter-mountain West where he creates technical and marketing content, including white papers, solution briefs, and courseware for some of the world’s largest information technology companies. With more than 14 years of experience in the field, he has learned more than he ever thought he would know about such enterprise IT topics as cloud computing, storage, databases, business software, and networking. When he’s not writing about business computing, he can be found outdoors, probably hiking with his family and dog.
