5-FLIGHT AUGER

Reduce spillage of finer grained material by utilizing a 5-Flight Auger. A tighter corkscrew design with 5 turns over the same distance as the standard 3.

TRUCK PROTECTOR FLAP

A Truck Protector Flap is an adjustable barrier bolted to the back of your tailgate that prevents salt from getting thrown into the truck bed, reducing the opportunity for corrosion.
