The new SR-110 and SR-210 utility spreaders from SnowEx are compact units, driven by electric motors and equipped with wireless controls. The dual 12-volt electric drive/maximum torque transmission system is completely sealed within a weather-resistant enclosure. Pocket-sized wireless remotes control the rate of the two-speed spinner and toggle the electric motor on and off. Both models attach to a variety of vehicles, including pickups, SUVs, cars, utility vehicles and ATVs. Both spreaders feature a 3-cubic-foot capacity hopper. The SR-210 spreads up to a 25-foot range and features a vertical high-flow auger that works in conjunction with the spinner, allowing the unit to spread bulk materials. The SR-110 spreads material up to a 20-foot range and uses a gate feed system, allowing it to handle small calcium chloride pellets or bagged ice melters. The SR-110 includes a cable to open and close the gate from the cab.
