Grit and determination

SnowEx spreaders have built a strong reputation with highway maintenance and commercial contractors, with the V-Maxx salt and grit spreaders at the forefront of winter management.

Strength lies not just in reliability but equally in proven durability under the harshest conditions. Mounted on a commercial flatbed, pick-up or trailer, the V-Maxx range offers some unique features, such as the hopper design that spreads 100% salt to 100% bulk sand. The drive system has maximum torque transmission with a hardened steel worm and bronze gear, so there are no chains, pulleys, drive belts or sprockets to break or wear. There is a quick-connect spinner assembly that allows use of the tow bar hitch when the spreader is not in service.

All SnowEx vehicle spreaders feature a 12V DC drive motor mounted in a water-tight enclosure and the hopper is UV protected high density polyethylene in safety yellow, with zero corrosion and reduced weight. The tough modular steel frame is finished in electrostatic powder coating for a durable working life. A patented, multi angled hopper allows effective flow of material and the inverted ‘V’ salt/sand baffle and attached vibrator is adjustable for a continuous flow. A fitted tarpaulin hopper cover tops everything off.

In-cab control units and Salt-Traxx, the product that records spreading details, measuring how much de-icing material is used, add up to the optimum in efficient management throughout the winter, recording date, time and stop/start information.

It all comes from years of painstaking development and the determination to build salt and grit spreaders to uncompromising standards.
There are five models ranging from the V-Maxx SP-7550, with a 1200 litre capacity hopper for use with a commercial vehicle or the optional trailer, to the flagship spreader, the SP-9500 with its vast 3200 litre hopper, ideal for use on a flatbed lorry.
