SnowEx Introduces Polyethylene-Constructed,Replaceable Tailgate Spreader
Better Roads Staff | October 30, 2009
WARREN, Mich. — SnowEx, a division of TrynEx International, introduces the new SP-2400 replaceable tailgate spreader. One of the first polyethylene-constructed replaceable tailgate spreaders on the market, the SP-2400 gives winter maintenance professionals a product that makes the most of available fleets by providing a cost-effective solution for year-round dump truck utilization. The poly construction eliminates the maintenance and corrosion concerns that accompany aluminum and steel spreaders, further increasing the cost savings over the life of the unit.
The all-electric SP-2400 works with a vehicle’s 12-volt DC electrical system, making it easily adaptable to a wide range of equipment. A dump truck can be converted in just a few hours for salt/sand spreading. Since electricity runs the truck’s hydraulic actuator, the electric spreader can be installed quickly without hoses, pumps and other hydraulic components. A hydraulic PTO is not required.
An in-cab dual controller allows the operator to regulate the speed of the auger, as well as the spinner speed. The SP-2400 can spread road sand, bulk salt or any combination of sand/salt mixture as far as 30 feet out. A self-leveling spinner assembly stays parallel to the ground as the dump bed rises and lowers, keeping the spread pattern consistently even throughout the application. A SnowEx-patented vibrator/inverted “V” system further maximizes material flow.
The SP-2400 doesn’t incorporate engines, chains, sprockets or pulleys in its construction, significantly reducing any maintenance concerns. An all-steel frame with an electrostatic powder-coat finish resists corrosion. The spreader also is backed by a two-year warranty on parts and labor.
