SnowEx Introduces New Spreader Options for Dump Bodies
Better Roads Staff | August 26, 2010
WARREN, Mich. — The new SP-2200 and SP-2200-H from SnowEx provide under-tailgate options for installing spreaders on dump bodies. These spreaders mount underneath the rear gate of dump bodies, rather than replacing the gate. They are available with either electric (SP-2200) or hydraulic (SP-2200-H) drives to further meet individual needs.
A mounting kit comes standard with the spreaders, allowing them to fit on the existing attachment points found on a wide variety of dump bodies (some fabrication required). Once installed, they accommodate the rising and lowering of dump beds because of a self-leveling feature that keeps the spinner assembly parallel with the ground.
The SP-2200 and SP-2200-H feature SnowEx’s noncorrosive polyethylene construction and patented auger system, which feeds a precise, consistent flow of material to the spinner. An attached vibrator reduces clumping concerns, and both models can spread any mixture of bulk salt and course sand up to 40 feet wide. To allow maximum control of the application, the units include variable-speed controllers, which independently adjust the auger and spinner speeds.
Because their design contains no pulleys, sprockets, chains or belts, the spreaders require little maintenance. To further simplify servicing needs, each unit contains a clean-out tray, which can be lowered to easily clear material from the hopper after use.
A work light also comes standard with the SP-2200 and SP-2200-H. Both models are covered by a two-year warranty.
In addition to its under-tailgate spreaders, SnowEx offers both electric and hydraulic replaceable-tailgate spreaders for dump bodies, as well as a full line of other salt and sand spreaders.
