Just in Time for Snow Season

11/2/2013

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - This year's GIE+EXPO saw SnowEx introduce two new tractor-mounted Drop Pro spreaders for controlled application of bagged ice melters and bulk rock salt. Featuring precise, gate-free operation, the units are ideal for use on sidewalks, campus parking lots, parking structures and other off-road applications.

Model SD-600 has a 6-cubic-foot capacity with a 36-in. spread width, and model SD-1400 has a 14-cu.-ft. capacity with a 48-in. spread width. Both units include a polyethylene hopper and variable-speed auger feed system, which is run by a self-diagnosing digital controller. They offer a wide range of material application rates to help operators minimize material waste.

Drop Pro spreaders are fully electric powered with sealed, direct-drive motors mounted in weather-resistant enclosures. They use completely loomed automotive-style wiring harnesses and draw power from the tractor's battery.

To maximize material flow, the spreaders are equipped with vibrators and use SnowEx's patented inverted "V" hopper design. Other standard equipment includes a top screen and fitted lid. The units are compatible with Category-1, 3-point hitches. Model SD-600 is also offered with an optional receiver hitch or utility bed mount.

"Snow and ice professionals are always looking for a better way to maintain sidewalks," said James Truan, vice president of sales and marketing for SnowEx. "Drop Pro spreaders are the perfect solution, thanks to their highly precise, electric-driven feed systems. Whether there is a light dusting of snow or a significant ice build-up, these spreaders have the flexibility for single-pass results."

SnowEx Drop Pro spreaders are backed by a 2-year parts and labor warranty.
